Lightbulb Meatless Meaty Sandwich

I am not a vegetarian, but this is one meatless sandwich that satisfies my carnivorous cravings.


2 slices bread (whole-wheat preferably)
1 giant portobello cap, stemmed and sliced
a handful of spinach
a slice of cheese (Jarlsberg works well with this)
1-2 tsp. oil (canola, olive, or Enova)
1 tsp. balsamic vinaigarette

Saute sliced mushroom in skillet for 2 minutes, add spinach and continue saute until spinach's wilted. Spatula them into a square and top with slice of Jarlsberg cheese. cover skillet for 30sec-1 minute. spread balsamic vinaigarette over bread slices the spoon the mushroom-spinach-cheese mixture onto bread and enjoy!

My estimate for calories is 400-500 (primarily in bread, the balsamic vinaigarette, cheese, and oil) but it's oh-so-delish and filling!
Current program: 1,800 calories most days of the week; 45-60 minutes of mixed exercises (weights, cardio-kickbox, dance, athletic intervals) 6 days a week
Current goal: 135 pounds by birthday (July 14th) and to run half marathon at end of May.

I make something very similar to this, and it is wonderful! I marinate the portobello in the balsamic vinegar and oil then grill it whole (either outside or indoors on a George Foreman grill), and put it on a Kaiser roll with spinach leaves, roasted red bell peppers, and a thin slice of smoked gouda or provolone

Thumbs up Good Sandwiches!

AquaWarlock, I made this last night for dinner, and it was fabulous!

Suzanne, yours sounds excellent, too! I'll try it with my other portobello cap.
