Portabello Sandwich

Here is Chef Wyric's recipe for a Portabello Sandwich, an example of an item that he would recommend in his article.

Serves: 1
Time to Prepare: 20 minutes
1 green onion, sliced
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tbsp. of tamari
½ tsp. of sugar
1 portabello cap
½ tsp. of oil
1 bun
1 roasted red bell pepper
1 lettuce leaf
1 tbsp. of brown mustard
¼ of an avocado, sliced


  1. Slice the green onion.
  2. Mince the garlic.
  3. Combine these with the tamari and sugar and set the mix aside.
  4. Sauté the portabello cap over a medium-high heat in the oil, concave side down first.
  5. Once the concave side becomes soft (you will need to flip the portobello occasionally to check it),
  6. turn the portabello over and continue sautéing it until the outside becomes soft.
  7. Reduce the heat to medium.
  8. Add the tamari mix and flip the portabello several times until the sauce coats the cap (this will
  9. probably happen in less than a minute.)
  10. Remove the portabello from the pan and set it aside.
  11. Keep the heat going on the pan and lightly toast each half of the bun in the pan.
  12. Place the portabello cap, underside up, on the bottom bun.
  13. Place the roasted red pepper on top of the portabello, followed by the lettuce leaf.
  14. Finish the sandwich off by spreading the mustard on the top bun.
