Mushroom are a delectable addition to anyone's diet, if you like them. Please enjoy this recipe courtesy of coach Tyler. Whether you call them portabella or portabello, you are correct—but these big, beefy, tender mushrooms are really just creminis in disguise. Some folks replace their typical burgers with a portabella, but others use them as a vehicle to transport flavor town into the mouth. Ingredients:
8 oz portabella mushrooms
4 oz cherry tomatoes
4 oz mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp basil
½ Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
½ tsp red wine vinegar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat mushrooms with EVOO.
Add diced tomatoes and chopped/shredded mozzarella to the inside of the mushroom caps.
Drizzle with vinegar.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Top with sliced/ribboned (if you’re fancy) basil.

I bought these mushrooms at my local farmers market. They where a steal in my opinion, considering how much work went into growing them. They should have cost a thousand dollars but these were only $20! As always... here's to your best health! Dr. Linda P.S Mushrooms are an immune booster.
