Balsamic Roasted Portobello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Sooo I’ve been reading this and it’s sort of making me never want to eat meat again. How’s that for an attention catching first sentence?! I mentioned this idea to my family last night and in between scoffs and laughter they told me I was crazy. I’m not even sure I want so say goodbye forever, all I said was that I think I could be a pescetarian and it opened up a can of worms 🙂

I find myself naturally gravitating toward more whole and plant based foods and these mushrooms are no exception. While there is a little cheat in these with the blue cheese, they are quite the delight as a meal or a side dish. You can even mimic this preparation with stuffed white button mushrooms for a simple and savory appetizer!

    I think there’s a step missing. Do you turn them over, roast them for ten more minutes, then fill them and roast for seven more?

      Hi Jose, thanks for commenting. Yes, you roast them for 10 minutes with the cap side up then you remove them from the oven, flip them cap side down and then add the evoo, vinegar, and blue cheese then cook for 7 minutes more.

      Let me know if you have any other questions, happy to help!
