Healthy Basil and Beef Portobello Mushrooms with Parmesan Cheese

Healthy Basil and Beef Portobello Mushrooms with Parmesan Cheese
Carly Jacobs

I’m always looking for a carbohydrate ‘replacement’ for dinner as I don’t do too well with stodgy food before bed time. What can I say? I’m a granny.

This recipe is a nice little substitute when you’re feeling like Italian food but don’t want to eat pizza or pasta.

What You Need (serves 4 to 6)

8 Portobello mushrooms

Olive oil spray

1 kilo of beef mince

1 large zucchini, diced

1 large carrot, diced

4 spring onions, finely chopped

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

3 tablespoons of fresh chopped basil (or a decent squeeze of basil in a tube)

Fresh grated parmesan cheese

What to do

1. Preheat your grill. Place mushrooms on a baking paper covered tray. Spray with olive oil and grill on each side until cooked through.

2. Heat a decent spray of olive oil in a large pan. Stir fry spring onions until fragrant. Add beef. Stir fry until brown.

3. Add crushed garlic and basil. Stir fry for 2 minutes. Add carrot and zucchini. Stir fry until soft.

4. Remove Portobello mushrooms from grill. Spoon beef combo on to mushrooms and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Return to grill for a few minutes until cheese melt.

5. Serve on a bed of baby spinach if you’re pretending to be a contestant on Master Chef. It’s called ‘plating up’, FYI.

    This looks delicious! Can’t wait to make it, because we already eat portobellos a lot here. Question: what size of mushrooms do you use? The ones that we get around here are three or sometimes four inches across, so eight of them seems like A LOT of food.
