  • Serve Serves 1


1 large Portobella or flat mushroom

1 ciabatta roll (or burger bun of your choice!)

½ brown onion, sliced thinly

2 lettuce leaves, chopped roughly

2 tomato slices, sliced thinly

60g haloumi, sliced thinly

¼ tsp chilli flakes

½ tsp chopped parsley

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp whole egg mayonnaise

1 tbsp basil pesto

Salt & pepper, to season


1Cut the stem of the mushroom and brush any excess soil with a damp cloth.

2Into a small bowl, add olive oil, parsley, chilli flakes and a small pinch of salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly. Using a basting brush, brush olive oil mixture all over the mushroom, making sure it’s all covered.

3On a small nonstick pan, heat over a medium heat. Cook mushroom for 4-6 minutes on each side, covering it with a lid to steam. Whilst this is cooking, on another small nonstick pan, splash a small amount of olive oil and heat on high. Add onions into the pan with a pinch of salt and cook for 5 minutes.

4Take onion out of the pan and add haloumi. Cook until lightly golden brown on each side.

5Toast the bread under the grill for 2-3 minutes until lightly toasted.

6In a small bowl, add pesto and mayonnaise into a bowl and mix.

7It’s time to STACK! On the bottom of the burger bun, smear mayonnaise mixture edge to edge. Add mushroom, onions, haloumi, tomato and lettuce leaves and serve.
