I have tried cauliflower pizza before, and I really enjoyed it. BUT I think this is a whole new level!
I recently saw the biggest Portabella mushroom I have ever seen... in my entire life. I grabbed two and ran (aka drove) home. The mushrooms were actually TOO big for the buns so we had to cut around the edges in order for them to fit on the buns. I used the mushroom- edges the next day on top of a salad.
I looked up some portabella mushroom burger recipes online, and then mushed them all together to come up with my very own delicious recipe.
This gets two thumbs up!
(serving size 2 burgers)
2 large portabella mushroom caps
whole wheat buns
1 large ripe vine tomato
swiss cheese (optional)
ketchup? Mustard? Pickles? Any toppings you desire,
1 tbsp unrefined toasted sesame oil (if you do not have this use EVOO although i think toasted sesame oil is great to have and gives things a really fun flavor )
1 tbsp EVOO
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 tbsp montreal chicken seasoning (it is a McCormick seasoning)
1 tbsp rosemary (fresh or dry)
salt and pepper
Mix the balsamic, Sesame oil, EVOO, honey, montreal chicken seasoning, rosemary salt and pepper together. Bush all over the mushroom caps. (leave some marinade aside)
Preheat your cast iron grill, or indoor grill pan on medium heat. Do not have one? Use a George Forman.
When grill is hot, place caps on top. Let it sit on grill for a few miunutes and brush on more of the marinade. After about 5 minutes flip burgers over and brush more seasoning on. Let it sit for about 7 -10 minutes or until the burgers start to release some juice and are cooked through.
Toast your buns, place the cooked portabella mushroom on top. Add your toppings and enjoy. So delicious and yummy.
I bought a butternut squash with intent to bake. I would usually have it as a side dish or on top of salad, but camera man had the brilliant idea of making a butternut squash soup! The soup was delicious, easy to make.
This food blog post is different than all my others because this time I had a professional photographer following me as I cooked! Lucie and I had such a fun afternoon, and the soup turned out delicious.
Camera man and I are in CA for a week to visit family and friends. The weather has been more than perfect and it's been nice to get a break from the Boston chill.
A delicious recipe that is quick and easy. I knew I would have a late night of teaching and that camera man would get home before I did. So I prepped dinner, and had him just throw it in the oven at 400. It was ready as I walked in the door!
Yesterday Camera man and I only left our home for a couple hours. We cooked and hung out with two of our favorite people ALL DAY! It was an unexpected treat. And we had a blast.
Menu: Baked Haddock, brussels sprouts, brown rice and a really delicious dessert (that I need to get the recipe for) with some homemade lattes.
My mother and grandmother always tell me that turmeric is a spice that I should use more often because of its "healing properties". When it comes to food I listen to what they say.
I put “pizza” in quotes because my camera man said that you should not call something a pizza if you have to eat it with a fork and knife!
