Here is a GREAT recipe for a side dish, perfect for Phase 1.
2 bulbs of garlic
Any kind of lowfat shredded cheese
salt & pepper
4 Portobello caps
Clean caps well, taking all of the black parts (don't know what it's called
) out. Save the stems.
Chop stems, onion and garlic, then saute in olive oil with salt and pepper until onions are soft and clear. In a large bowl, add this onion mixture to the cheese. (It's up to you as to how much cheese you want to add) Mix well.
Take the onion/cheese mixture and fill the mushroom caps. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
These freeze very well for later use. ENJOY!!!!
