Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

I love to go Meatless a few times per week and there is nothing better than a delicious grilled portobello mushroom sandwich.  This combines a few of my favorite ingredients for unbelievable flavor; roasted red peppers (either store bought or grill your own in advance), goat cheese and arugula… all in one delicious, healthy sandwich!  And without the high fat and calories of meat sandwich or burger!  Plus this is a quick meal for the whole family.

I am not necessarily a 100% vegetarian, but I do think it is great to pull dairy & meat from our diets time to time.  I once did a 21 day detox and never felt better in all my life.  The plan essentially pulls all animal products by week 3, so without all the processed foods, meats and dairy, our bodies actually work at optimal capacity!  I am not suggesting you become vegan or vegetarian, but I am suggesting give a few vegetarian recipes a try, replace the meat and I promise you will not even miss it!  It’s fun to try new things and live with an open mind!



  1. combine 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar, 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil, 1 T each chopped herbs of parsley & thyme, 1T minced garlic in a large gallon baggie with 4-6 portabello caps.  Let marinate for 10 -60 minutes.
  2. Pre-heat the grill to medium.  Grill approx 4 min per side. Use the remaining marinade to baste mushrooms as they cook.
  3. Toast whole wheat bunds then layer on 1 Tea dijon mustard, arugula, 1 large slice roasted red pepper.  Add the mushroom cap them top with 1 oz goat cheese.

Be sure to use the goat cheese in a log and not the crumbles.  This is such a treat and the flavors pop in your mouth with every bite.

Add homemade sweet potato fries and a kale salad for the perfect side dishes.
