Spring Food

More than anything, this is just a bad ass picture. I am starting to figure out how to take good pictures of food. Problem is, it requires natural light, rather than a flash and I usually cook at night when it's dark.

So these portabella burgers turned out pretty great. I made a marinade with balsamic vinegar, a touch of olive oil, a squirt of agave, a few drops of liquid smoke, a dash of thyme and minced garlic. I marinated the shrooms for about an hour and kept spooning the liquid into the gill side. I roasted them at 350, gill side up for about 20 minutes. Checking often.

The green beans are just steamed grean beans with some sauted shallots and toasted almonds with a squeeze of lemon.

Nice spring dinner.


  1. I see no problem with the picture!

    So that is one mushroom head on the bun??'s rather large, isn't it? What did you put on the bun??


  2. I forgot to mention...those green beans look sooo good, as does the shroom burger. great pic.....
