  1. Wash and pinch off the stem of the portobello.

  3. Grill: Heat the grill or indoor grill pan over medium heat. When hot, brush the grate with oil or lightly spray the grill pan. Place the mushrooms on the grill, reserving marinade for basting. Grill for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until tender, brushing with marinade frequently.

  4. Prepare the salad: Combine lettuce, feta, walnuts, lemon juice, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Wash and pat dry all the leaves of the head of romaine, use some for topping.
  5. Toast the bun, spread both sides with pesto, top with portobello mushroom, and garnish with tomato, avocado, onion, and romaine leaf. Enjoy!
