Portobello Bacon:

Napa Slaw:

Hot Chinese Mustard Aioli:


  1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Mix together the hoisin and soy sauce in a small bowl. Brush on the veggie burger patties and sear on one side until charred, 3 to 5 minutes. Brush again and flip over, then let cook, brushing frequently, until the patties are charred and shiny with the hoisin glaze, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Place the patties on the buns along with the Portobello Bacon, Napa Slaw and Hot Chinese Mustard Aioli.

Portobello Bacon:

Yield: 1/2 cup
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Fit a sheet tray with a wire rack.
  2. Combine the olive oil, soy sauce and rice vinegar in a medium bowl. Add the mushrooms and toss to coat.
  3. Combine the granulated garlic, brown sugar, paprika and salt on a plate and mix to combine. Press both sides of each mushroom slice in the spice mixture, then place on the prepared sheet tray.
  4. Bake until dried, crispy and deep golden brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

Napa Slaw:

Yield: 8 cups
  1. Toss together the cabbage, carrots, Fresno and green onions in a large bowl.
  2. Combine the vinegar, soy sauce, granulated sugar and sesame oil in a small bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves, then pour over the cabbage mixture. Toss until the slaw is coated, then let sit at room temperature to let the flavors meld, 30 minutes.

Hot Chinese Mustard Aioli:

Yield: 3/4 cup
  1. Whisk the mustard and boiling water together in a bowl, then let cool completely. Mix with the mayo and garlic and season to taste.
