I love mushrooms and one of my favorite sandwiches from a local restaurant is a Portobello BLT. Yum. I was looking through some old magazine clippings and found a recipe that inspired this yummy meal!
INGREDIENTS (for 2 people)
4 Portobello mushroom caps
1/2 cup pizza or spaghetti sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
1 Whole wheat hamburger bun
1. Turn on the broiler.
2. Snap the stems off the caps and put belly side up on a sheet pan.
3. Add the sauce, cheese and a sprinkle of oregano (or a pizza/spaghetti seasoning mix).
4. For the garlic bread, use a pastry brush and brush a light coating of olive oil on the inside of the buns. Sprinkle with garlic salt and put on the pan with the mushrooms.
5. Put the pan under the broiler. I took the bread out after about 4 minutes and the pizza came out at 8 minutes. It will be different in each oven depending on how close to your broiler you put your pan.
So I really loved this dinner. And according to my calculations it is around 400 calories depending on your ingredients and how much cheese you really want to use. My BF, however, wasn't a fan but said if I cut it into strips and told him it was an appetizer he thinks he would like it more lol. He's a meat lover. Whenever I make a pasta dish with veggies he asks me where the protein is... and he never accepts the answer "it's in the beans". Beans don't count with him.
Anyway, these were simple, fast and delish. I have already looked up some more simple dishes to make using mushroom caps. Enjoy!!!
