Tender "meaty" portobello with fresh spinach, garlic, and tamari. An easy, satisfying side dish (or pair it with rice or quinoa for more of a meal!)
Portobello mushrooms are amazing. They're so tender, "meaty", and nutrient-rich. This recipe keeps it simple with minimal ingredients so the mushrooms can really shine.
It's an easy, satisfying side dish, but you can also pair it with cooked brown rice or quinoa for more of a main dish meal. (Or try it with some Baked Tofu on the side!)
