This is fast food, and it's real good food too. If you've never had a portobello burger before, your world is about to change.

RAW PORTOBELLO BURGERS WITH COLLARD GREENS AND GUACAMOLE [VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE]
FOR THE BURGERS:
2 portobello mushroom tops
1 teaspoon Bragg’s liquid aminos or tamari

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
2 huge collard leaves
2 tablespoons tahini
FOR THE GUACAMOLE:
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
Toss the mushroom tops in the Bragg’s or tamari. Set in the dehydrator at 115 degrees (Fahrenheit) – or in your oven at its lowest temperature – for 30 minutes or until they soften and darken a little.
To make the guacamole:mash the avocado flesh with the lime juice, salt, pepper and chili (if using). Adjust according to taste. Some garlic might be nice.
Take a mushroom top and spread on some guacamole, then pile with greens and tomatoes. Drizzle in a little tahini if you like, then wrap up in a collard leaf!
