Bill Majoros, the name behind The Foreign Films, sent me this recipe for Vegan Hawaiian Portobello Burgers to pair with his song ‘Aloha Blue Sky’. It’s a match made in heaven.
You won’t miss the beef in these substantial mushroom burgers. The portobellos are lightly seasoned with soy sauce before grilling. The smoky ‘shrooms are then layered with lettuce, maple-soy glazed onions and grilled pineapple. It’s a delicious trip to the islands.
Vegan Hawaiian Portobello Burgers
2 portobello mushroom caps
1 tsp oil
1 large Vadallia onion, cut into rings
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs soy sauce plus extra for seasoning
1 Tbs maple syrup,
4 pineapple rings, fresh or canned
2 whole wheat buns
1. With a small spoon, remove the ribs from the mushroom caps, then rinse the caps with water and pat dry.
2. Place the onions and garlic in a skillet with the oil. Sauté the onions until they start to become translucent. Add the soy sauce and the maple syrup. Continue to cook until sauce thickens.
3. Sprinkle the portobello caps with some soy sauce and a few grinds of black pepper.
4. Place the portobello caps on the grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side.
5. For the last 3-4 minutes, place the pineapple rings on the grill to warm them up.
6. Assemble the portobello burgers on the buns with lettuce, pineapple and the glazed onions.

Side 4 of The Foreign Films progressively released album ‘The Record Collector’ came out in February.
And here is the song Bill recommended to go along with the Hawaiian burgers. ‘Aloha Blue Sky’ lushly slinks its funky self right through you.
“Aloha blue sky
Her heartbeat won’t lie
Love can make you cry”
