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.
