Recipe

Although it's hard to tell with the abundunce of recipes featuring meat these days, back in the day I was a vegetarian.  In fact, I was a vegetarian for almost ten years.  During that time, this recipe was something I made all the time.  Roasted or grilled portabella mushrooms caps, roasted red peppers, basil, fresh mozzarella, and a touch of avocado really makes a killer sandwich.  To keep the calories low, I often serve this on reduced calorie bread, but you could use any bread you like.  A crunchy French roll or hearty wheat are delicious.

    I used the grilling option and it was excellent! I loved the flavors that were infused into the mushrooms! Definitely worth repeating!
