Here's To Healthy Food That Tastes Good!

The portobello mushroom is known for being a high protein vegetable (5g+ per serving - hello portobello steaks!). This flavorful mushroom is also packed with thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, magnesium, zinc and manganese. The portobello is also an excellent source of dietary fiber, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, phosphorus, potassium, copper and selenium - providing over one third of your daily recommended values of these and also containing as much potassium as a banana! Here's to eating food that tastes damn good and is crazy-healthy for you too!

Celebrate Health and Taste With My 'Portobello Mushroom Chunks & Sweet Garlic Marinade' Recipe

What you will need:
2 large portobello mushroom caps, cut into chunks
2 tbsp agave nectar
1 tbsp vegan butter, melted
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Bragg's Liquid Aminos (you can use shoyu, soy sauce, or tamari instead)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp onion powder

What you will need to do:
Gently wipe off any dirt from your portobello caps with a damp paper towel. Then carefully cut them into chunks. Whisk the last 5 ingredients to make your marinade. Pour marinade over mushroom chunks in a shallow container or bowl and cover. Let marinade in refrigerator for at least 1- 2 hours (the longer they marinade, the tastier and more flavorful they will be). Saute on medium-high heat for about 7 minutes, tossing once or twice. Enjoy!
