Baked Portobello Mushrooms, Avocado, Tomato Sandwich. Liebster Award and Sleeping Chewie.

A Simple sandwich today! We had some portabellas the other day. It was the first time I was cooking the big shroom at home. We just always end up eating some out. So after a couple of recipe look ups , we decided on italian herb seasoning. Veganmofo Post 16!

Break the hard part of the stem of the Portobellos.
scrape the gills if you want, though they add to the taste of the shroom.
Sprinkle salt, dried basil and any fave italian herb mix (oregano, thyme, rosemary, sage, basil), cayenne pepper, olive oil and lemon juice and let sit for half an hour.
(Also made another portobello spiced with cajun spice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper olive oil and lemon juice. which was yummazing too!).
Rub well all over and let marinate for half an hour.
Bake in preheated 350 deg F with caps down for 12-15 minutes until the edges start to brown.
Serve on fave sandwich bread or burger buns with fresh tomatoes, lettuce, avocado, basil, salt and pepper and sauce. We didnt need any sauce, because of the nicely juicy mushrooms.
Served it between the Tomato Sprouted Quinoa flat bread as seen below.

Have a great Meatless Monday you all. A big Hi to you all from my Mom and Dad!. If you havent checked Menaka, the elephant’s story in the previous post, read it here
