Aimee and I have been trying to eat healthier lately and last night I decided to try something new- grilled portobello mushrooms. Aimee is not a big fan of mushrooms but I love them. They are a great substitute for too much of that heart-UNhealthy red meat and super low on calories and fat. I just threw this recipe together last minute and it turned out really delicious. The only adjustment I made to this recipe on here from what I made is that I halved the white pepper amount to taste (it had a little bit too much kick for my personal liking).
Here we go!
Start out by picking up as many portobello mushrooms from the grocery store as you want. They are BIG mushrooms- usually each person will only need one to be full. I had two because I was starving! They are located where you would expect them to be- in the vegetable area usually near bell peppers.
For each mushroom use the following ingredients:
1/4 Tsp ground curry
1/8 Tsp ground white pepper
1/8 Tsp garlic salt
1/8 Tsp onion salt
1/8 Tsp seasoning salt (I used season all)
1 Tbsp diced green pepper
1 Tbsp diced yellow onion
1/2 Tbsp diced garlic
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
Wash the mushrooms thoroughly with cool water first. Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Place the diced pepper, onion and garlic onto the mushroom. Sprinkle the dry ingredients on top of the diced vegetables. Top with the worcestershire sauce.
If you are using a grill (preferably charcoal) cook on medium-high heat for 10-13 minutes. If you are baking in the oven set your oven to 350 and cook for the same duration. These mushrooms are safe to eat completely uncooked so don’t worry about them being “raw” in the middle. This amount of time is sufficient to get the mushroom flesh just perfectly cooked and the peppers, onions and garlic will have enough time to get soft as well. Don’t sweat it if some of the worcestershire sauce drips over the side of the mushroom- the flavor will still be there. The mushroom acts as a boiling pot and the flavors mix themselves in this boiling action.
Enjoy! This is a super simple recipe and it is incredible healthy as well- I calculated each mushroom with ingredients and cooked to be around 100 calories each. If you enjoy mushrooms this is a great recipe to try out.
