“GO TO” FOOD OF THE WEEK: Portabello Mushrooms

Hey TW Family!

I’m going to be doing a series over the next couple of weeks for Foodie Fridays. Where I talk about my favorite “go to” foods that I like to keep in stock at my house.

First up is the “Portabello Mushroom”.

This protein packed mushroom is great to keep in your house simply because of its versatility and nutritional value!

These mushroom are low in calories but full of energy boosting B Vitamins, fiber, and potassium.

Because of its dense meaty texture it is often used as a substitute for meat especially in the vegetarian community. I’m sure you’ve seen it chopped up and added to meat sauces or even grilled and used as a hamburger.

But have you seen it used as a “carb substitute”???

In my book the Fit & Flavorful Kitchen Makeover I use it in a few of my recipes. Its excellent substitution for carbs in your meals.

Bake for 10 minutes on 350 to soften.

Fill with pizza sauce, pepperoni, sausage, or whatever other toppings you love and sprinkle with Mozzarella cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and toppings cook through.

Portabello Mushroom Hamburger Buns

One portobello mushroom has about 30 calories and no fat which is MUCH healthier than the average hamburger bun with 120 calories and about 2 grams of fat.

Remove the stems and wipe the portobello mushroom caps with paper towels.

Rub the mushroom caps with olive oil on all sides. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
