Recipe

I love grilling portabella mushrooms as a meatless alternative to steak. Their meaty texture, earthy flavor, and versatility make them the perfect vegetarian option. However since it is still just a mushroom, I always like to create something special to make them feel like more than just a grilled veggie. For this dish I wanted something light and refreshing, so I decided to go with a fresh salsa. Originally I was thinking about making a pico de gallo with avocado, but then I couldn't resist adding fresh basil from the garden and it took a bit of a different direction. The creamy avocado and fresh bright herbs pair perfectly with the grilled mushrooms.
