3 Healthy Portobello Mushroom Recipes

If you are here, it’s because you are the type of person in this world who ACTUALLY likes mushrooms. Well friend, virtual high five to you for being super uber cool!

Recently I picked up Portobello mushrooms from the Farmer’s Market and I fell in love with them! Here are 3 healthy and delicious recipes you can make using Portobello mushrooms!

Portobello Mushroom Pizzas

This is a great low-carb and gluten-free alternative to actual pizza. Just spread sauce over the mushroom cap, add your toppings, and sprinkle with cheese! Pop these bad boys in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees!

Ingredients (Serves 1):

  • 2 Portobello mushroom caps (stems removed)
  • 1/2 cup pasta sauce (I like traditional spaghetti sauce)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • Pepperoni (or your favorite toppings)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
  • Brush or drizzle olive oil all over the tops of the mushroom caps
  • Flip the caps over and spread 1/4 cup of pasta/pizza sauce into the inside of each mushroom
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese over the top of the sauce- use 1/4 – 1/2 cup for each mushroom cap
  • Top with your favorite toppings. I like uncured pepperoni!
  • Sprinkle dried oregano over the top of the pizzas
  • Place caps on a foiled lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes
  • Serve

  • Avocado
  • 2 Burger buns

  • Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a pan and add the mushroom cap
  • Drizzle the rest of the olive oil over the top of the mushroom cap
