Portabella mushrooms are a nice savory alternative to steak in a fajita. Roasting them along side the onions and peppers makes sure the flavors spread during the caramelizing process; transforming them into a super savory selection.
Don’t forget that this is also a great recipe to use leftover veggies from the week.
Are Portabella Mushroom A Good Meat Substitute?
Yes, mushrooms are classified as vegetables but technically they belong to the fungi kingdom. Although they are not vegetables, mushrooms provide several important nutrients. Mushrooms have protein, fiber and are the only vegan, non-fortified dietary source of vitamin D.
Note: this recipe serves two for a big meal or three with a nice side salad.
