Personally, I Love grilled portobello mushroom sandwiches, portobello mushrooms have protein, they taste meaty and this recipe marinates them, did you notice in the photo that the onion has been grilled, I’m going to do that, I really like grilled onion, but, do whatever makes it taste great to you. Try with some Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries.
Use meatless Mondays to begin to introduce yourself to meals with no meat, you can cut down on fat, cholesterol and calories, it can be cheaper, it doesn’t harm any animals and it’s great for the environment. Just think if millions of us did this every week how much it would affect our health, the welfare of animals and our eco systems.
