Sometimes simple is better.

As in the case of these "burgers". Because sometimes you just don't want all the extra calories of a bread bun, and a huge, tasty mushroom cap will suffice. And because pesto is the lovechild of natural ingredients and innovation.

By the way, don't skip the garlic in the vegan garlic pesto part of the recipe. If you're not a garlic fan, replace it with some other flavor burst, because this little sandwich needs some definite flavor direction to hit all the right notes. Simple, but scrumptious!
