Gather your ingredients. Preheat a grill or grill pan over high heat. 

To roast the bell peppers: Halve and seed the bell peppers. 
Place on your grill, cut side up, and grill 8-10 minutes, until well-charred. You can also place under a "Hi" Broiler for 8-10 minutes to achieve the same effect. 
When the peppers are well-blackened, place in an air-tight container. Cover and let steam while you're preparing everything else, for about 8-10 minutes. 
After the peppers have steamed, you can easily peel off their charred skin, leaving the roasted pepper flesh. 

To marinate the Portabella's: Use a spoon to scoop out the gills of the Portabella's 
In a medium bowl, combine the mustard, Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and rosemary. 
Coat each of the mushroom caps completely in the marinade. Let sit for at least 10 minutes, or even overnight. 

To grill your onions: Remove the peel of the onion and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices. 
Place the onions on the hot grill. Let sear about 7 minutes, until well-charred on one side. Flip and continue cooking another 5-7 minutes.
When the onions are well-charred, remove from the grill and keep warm.

To grill the Mushrooms: Remove the mushroom caps from the marinade. Save the marinade. 
Place the Portabellas on the pre-heated grill, gill-side-up. After 3-4 minutes, flip the Portabella caps. Grill another 5-7 minutes, until tender and charred around the edges. 

To prepare your burger buns: Halve the buns and scoop out most of the center of the bread, making way for all of your fillings. Toast the buns 3 minutes on a medium hot spot on the grill. 
To prepare you arugula: Toss the arugula your reserved marinade. 

When all of your ingredients are ready, assemble your burgers: Toasted bun, roasted pepper, grill onion, mushroom, arugula, another roasted pepper. 
 Enjoy immediately. 

Tips: Add a couple of roasted garlic cloves or top with sliced avocado for a creamy finish.

It's mammoth! Chef Katie found this massive guy at the Green City Market today, grown by the team at River Valley. Now who has a grill big enough for this beast? Use for Charred Poblano and Mushroom Tacos or Belgian Mushroom Stew. More recipes at: www.plants-rule.com
