2 yellow or red sweet peppers   400 g
4 Portobello mushrooms, stems removed   170 g
2 tbsp olive oil   30 mL
2 tbsp dried oregano   4 g
2 cloves garlic, crushed    
  ground pepper to taste    
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
4 hamburger buns   192 g
1/4 cup mayonnaise   65 mL
4 tbsp baby arugula   5 g
40 g goat cheese, crumbled    


  1. Preheat the outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Oil the grill.
  2. Cut the peppers in half or quarters, removing the seeds and the stalks. Remove the mushroom stems. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, oregano, garlic, and pepper. Brush over the peppers and mushromm caps, making sure to coat completely.
  3. Put the mushrooms and peppers onto the grill. Cook about 4-5 min per side, until golden-coloured. Alternatively, you may cook the vegetables on a nonstick, heavy-bottom pan, over very high heat.
  4. Put the buns on the oiled grilled and cook about 1 min per side, or until toasted. Remove the buns, then spread with mayonnaise.
  5. Garnish the bottom half of each bun with arugula. Arrange the peppers and mushrooms on top. Add the cheese, cover with top halves of buns, then serve right away.
