Portobello Pitas

By on March 31, 2014

   When you’re in the mood for a vegetarian alternative, look no further than this. Portobellos are called the meat of the vegetable family. They have a firm texture and delicious taste and are wonderful with hummus and goat cheese.

INGREDIENTS
3 large portobello mushroom caps, wiped (stems removed)
3 medium-sized pitas, sliced in half
3/4 cup (185 mL) Red Bell Pepper Hummus 
1/2 cup (125 mL) crumbled goat cheese 
lettuce
sliced tomatoes
sliced onions

DIRECTIONS
    On either a barbecue or a nonstick grill pan sprayed with cooking spray, grill the mushrooms over medium-high heat for 12 minutes, turning halfway or until tender and grill marked. Spray the mushrooms with vegetable spray if they look dry. Slice into thick slices.
    Spread the inside of the pita halves with the hummus. Place half of the mushroom slices in each pita, sprinkle with cheese, and garnish with lettuce, tomatoes and onions.
