Portobello Mushroom Burgers

While the mosquitoes may still be sleeping off a night’s work, the climate leaves no doubt you’re in the middle of summer and the very hot fun. Most of s would balk at the idea of spending even one minute in these conditions doing anything, let alone grilling or doing any kind of cooking.

1/3 Cup chopped fresh Basil
2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon Pepper
6 Romaine Lettuce leaves
2 Tomatoes, cut into 6 slices
