With the right fillings,sandwiches can be deli-tastic at any point in time!
...Which is what I realised with this bad boy here! Portobello mushrooms is a great alternative to meat for burgers and sandwiches, and this here with the goats cheese and fresh basil along with the juicy tomatoes was awesome!
Why don't you try for yourself? I dare you!
Deli Portobello Sandwiches
Oil for frying
A generous pouring of balsamic vinegar
1 fat garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper
2 portobello mushrooms
1/3 cup goats cheese
A big handful fresh basil, finely chopped
1 tomato, sliced
4 slices of bread
Butter for pan-frying the bread in
- Start by mixing the oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Marinate the mushrooms in the mix for as long as you have, be it 10 minutes or 10 hours.
- In a frying pan, pour the mixture in along with the mushrooms, and fry until they have shrunk in size, 5-10 mminutes onlow heat.
- In the meantime (...in Hell's Kitchen, naah kidding - this is super simple, and Gordon Ramsay isn't watching you!) mix the goats cheese and basil in a cup.
- Assembly time! In a frying pan, heat a knob of butter and pan fry the bread until golden, then spread with the goats cheese, top with tomato and then with the portobello mushroom. Top with a second slice of toast, and repeat - et voila!
Today has been lovely, I met some great new people as well as having the pleasure of cooking up dinner for two of my favourite ladies! I hope you have had a lovely Sunday too!
