Introduction: Portobello Caprese
Second Prize in the
Healthy Eating Contest
We love mushrooms, any kind!
A very quick and easy way to cook mushrooms is to fill the big portobello mushrooms. Be creative, you can fill them with anything; spinach, curd, cheese, avocado or like me, with a caprese filling.
Believe me, it's very little work!
And this I found in the internet: "The super-sized portobello mushrooms have a XXL effect on well-being. They promote night vision, alleviate iron deficiency and stress, strengthen bones, heart and blood vessels, and are ideal for women with children or while breastfeeding."
Salt and Pepper
Clean the mushrooms carefully but not under the water, as they loose their taste and will be soaked full.
Remove the stems.
You can also remove the black inside of the mushroom if you wish, some say, they retain water.
Put the mushrooms into a greased ovenproof dish and put a slice of tomato onto them, than add some mozzarella and repeat. Season well, sprinkle with grated parmesan and add 1 tsp of Pesto.
Bake at 200 C for 20-30 minutes.
This can be a full meal or a starter.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
