From the "Flat Belly Diet" in Prevention (Feb 2008). This was a quick, easy lunch and tasted fabulous!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 portabella mushroom caps, stems removed (8oz total)
  • 4 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (to me it helped with cooking the shroom since I had to use a flat griddle) (optional)
  • 2 roasted red peppers, halves (from a jar)
  • 2 whole grain buns
  • 2 tablespoons pesto sauce
  • 4 pieces lettuce greens (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat grill pan (or griddle) over medium heat.
  2. Grill mushrooms 8 minutes, turning halfway through and brushing with vinegar.
  3. Warm pepper halves and buns on the pan.
  4. Spread each bun with half of the pesto.
  5. Place peppers, mushrooms, and greens (if using) on buns.
  6. If desired, drizzle with additional vinegar.
