Portobellos

I'm not a huge fan of the big meaty portobello mushroom. Maybe because it's big and meaty? But I decided to give them a try at home and see what I could do with them.

What I did was slice them fairly thin and sautéed them in a pan with some garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Hello, simple! They seemed cooked enough - meaning they had shrunk down significantly - in under 5 minutes. I simply scooped them into some pitas with lettuce and not only was it tasty, it was so fast I barely knew I'd cooked!
I think some tomato slices would have really complemented the mushrooms, but I didn't have any.
Now that I have a portobello dish I really like, I may experiment with them some more! And maybe next time my photos will come out a little prettier!
