2 Portobello Caps
2 Tbsp Ground Beef
2 Tbsp chopped onion
3 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp La Bomba (optional)
2 slices low-fat provolone
salt and pepper to taste
chopped tomato and cilantro to garnish

Grill the open side of the mushroom for about 2 minutes direct at 400*. Sautee the onion and garlic in a touch of EVOO. When translucent add the ground beef and bomba. Stir to mix. Top the mushrooms with the mixture, salt, pepper, and top with a slice of cheese.

Back on the egg direct at 400* for about 5 minutes until the mushrooms are done and the cheese melts.

Garnish with a little more pepper, chopped tomato and cilantro. I also used a dash of balsamic vinegar.

Each mushroom comes in under 200 calories total. This was a very filling, tasty meal.

    Saw the pics...looked great...

    I bet using seasoned ground turkey would make these even better...though the amount of meat is small...

    or a little turkey Italian sausage in place of the plain burger...

    I agree. I only used the beef because I had it on hand, already cooked. It worked, but the Bomba made it every bit as flavorful as italian sausage.
  • Or maybe Italian Sausage Tofurkry? hmmmm.....

    And I confess my ignorance, what is La Bomba?
  • crghc98crghc98 Posts: 1,006
    Don't get started on the Bomba thing...it looks amazing but you can't get it in the US...these guys rave about it...

    maybe when I feel I've been a better contributor to the forum I may ask for the secret source...until then I will just drool or await FDA approval.

    I don't sell it - as you know since I sent you some. I also pay the shipping.

    I figured I'd save you a few bucks, but if you want to send it then knock yourself out.

    I just don't want anyone to mistake Steve's generosity - and certainly don't want them to think I am taking advantage of it in any way.

    Trust me, I always smile. People think I'm a little off.
