Portobello ‘Pizza’ January 29, 2008

Filed under: Main Dish,Vegetarian — cookinghussy @ 8:58 am



Last night’s meal of portobello pizzas with a big salad turned out better than I had hoped. It was very easy and very filling.

4 portobello mushroom caps
2-3 cups spinach – washed
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 jar pizza sauce
Mozzarella Cheese

Saute spinach in a little bit of oil, along with the garlic, until soft. Add pizza sauce and mix in. On a cookie sheet, place a sheet of foil and spray with a little oil. Place each mushroom, top side down, on the sheet. Fill each mushroom with spinach and sauce, adding more sauce if you’d like. Top with cheese and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. Finish by broiling to give it a nice brown top. Serve with a big salad and enjoy.

Notes: This was stupid easy, cooked fast, and was quite healthy. The ‘toppings’ that go on the mushroom are endless. Next time I may try swiss chard and sundried tomatoes and make my own pizza sauce instead of using a can. I also won’t use as much cheese next time. Oops.

Servings: 4 servings
