Portobello Pizza

Portobello Pizza

Are you a mushroom fan, or are you in the camp that doesn’t eat fungi (my husband’s camp)? I never thought of eating mushrooms as eating fungi, and right now if you take a walk in the forests around the Pacific Northwest, you’ll find edible fungi (not portobello mushrooms though). Just bring a book with pictures or a knowledgeable guide so you manage to harvest edible mushrooms (and not the poisonous kind).

Have you had a portobello mushroom? They’re quite meaty as far as mushrooms go, and they taste great marinated and then roasted or grilled. Here’s a fun recipe for pizza using a portobello mushroom instead of a dough-based crust.

Tip If you have the time, the mushrooms are great marinated for at least a few hours (or overnight) in the olive oil and vinegar. Before you roast them, drain all the liquid and pat the mushrooms dry.

    A pizza option that quick HAS to make my list! I made pizza the other day, and it was great fun, but it is a pretty time-consuming process from scratch. I’m going to give this a try – another bonus: it probably won’t do funny things with my blood-sugar, either…yay!

    Hi Jennifer. I wish it were quicker – the roasting slows the process down, but you can roast just the mushrooms ahead of time, put them in the refrigerator, and then take them out for a quick meal with toppings.

    Erica,

    I’ve put up a SCD for the Holidays page for everyone to put links to holiday recipes. I hope this will help everyone find plenty of SCD recipes, especially those who are new to the diet. If you want to add any links of your great recipes: http://mrsedsresearchandrecipes.blogspot.com/2010/11/scd-for-holidays.html

    Hi Tracee,

    Thanks for sharing this. Great idea. I’m going to post some favorites (fingers crossed) as long as time allows. Feel free to share it on the Comfy Belly Facebook page too. Update: I’ll place it on the FB page for you :)

    Do you remove the gills from the mushrooms?
