Quick ‘n easy portobello burgers with vegan options

Portobellos are the giant mushrooms you see in the markets. People often use them as the basis for sandwiches or as a meat substitute in burgers.

I love portobello burgers, but one thing that has always bothered me about most of the burger recipes is that the portobellos are usually marinated in an oil-based marinade. If my mushrooms contain natural Vitamin D (like the ones in the package I bought at Aldi for 99 cents on Saturday), because Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, the vitamin would drain right into the marinade.

My recipe does not marinate the mushroom, which cuts down on preparation time and fat and maximizes the available nutrition.
