Balsamic Portobello Mushroom Bowl

Balsamic Portobello Mushroom Bowl

Balsamic Portobello Mushroom Bowl is served with rice and fresh carrots and broccoli. The Portobello mushroom is seasoned with onions, garlic, salt and black pepper and finished off with Balsamic vinegar.

Buying Tips

They should be fresh, firm and dry. If not prepackaged, try to buy the ones that are the freshest. Stay away from soft and wet mushrooms. 

Cleaning Tips

Wipe them with a damp paper towel to remove excess dirt. Mushrooms should be handled with care and not soaked or rinsed with water. Remember, mushrooms are like sponges, they soak up water. We want them to soak up the flavor, which they will get from the balsamic vinegar. 

Cooking tips

Make sure not to overcrowd your pan. You might have to cook them in two batches to exude maximum flavor from your Portobello mushrooms.

Easy Pasta Salad

Easy Pasta Salad

This Easy Pasta Salad recipe is quick and easy, an ideal side for your favorite meats. It is infused with fresh, crisp vegetables and tossed with a simple homemade vinaigrette dressing. It is one of my go-to summer recipes.

My husband introduced me to this simple pasta salad made with a simple dressing. Now he said I make it better than him. I think he only says that so he doesn’t have to make it LOL. Anyway I don’t mind making it since he really enjoys it.

Pasta

You can use any kind of pasta to make this pasta salad. However it is important to note that not all pasta is for cold salads. In my opinion, elbow macaroni, fusilli, penne, rotini or farfalle also known as bowtie works best.

The Veggies

You can use pretty much any vegetable of your choice in this recipe. This version is simple because I made it with the vegetables I had in my fridge. The cucumbers add a nice level of crispness that the dressing can really cling to. Juicy, cherry tomatoes are a nice addition as well. I used heirloom cherry tomatoes in this salad.
