    Catch-Up Post #3: Portobello Salad with Spicy Mustard Dressing, and an award


    Here’s a recipe from¬†Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook that’s been sitting in the “need to post” pile for a while… we broke out the grill for this one a few months ago. We love the taste and texture of grilled portobellos, and when placed over a bed of greens and garbanzos with a slightly spicy, tangy mustard dressing, they make for a great healthy meal.

    Portobello Salad with Spicy Mustard Dressing
    Roasted Portobellos:
    1/2 cup white wine
    1 tbsp olive oil
    2 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    2 large portobello caps

    1/4 cup prepared spicy, smooth mustard
    3 tbsp olive oil
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    2 tbsp pure maple syrup

    8 cups mixed greens
    1 avocado, peeled, halved, pitted, and thinly sliced
    1 small red onion, sliced into very thin half-moons
    1 15-oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained

    Combine the mushroom marinade ingredients in shallow glass dish, then place the portobellos upside down in the marinade. Spoon a bunch of the marinade into the mushroom caps to form a small pool. Preheat a grill to high heat and marinate for 20 minutes.
    Grill the mushrooms over direct heat, about 4 minutes per side. When done, remove from heat, and when cool enough to handle, slice and set aside.
    Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a bowl, then throw all the salad ingredients in a large bowl and pour the dressing over. Toss to coat.
    Place the greens on a plate, top with the portobellos, and serve.

    And now, award time!
