#SundaySupper Grilled Portobello Mushrooms On Red Pepper Slaw and Cucumber Dressing #ChooseDreams
I have been doing 30 days of fresh eating as part of my eating habits. One the reasons, besides weight loss, of why I decided to do fresh food challenge is because I work in healthcare as a phlebotomist. Now I know you are thinking what would that have to do with eating healthy?
Well, I see people who just had a heart attack, I see people who are trying to lower cholesterol levels, and I am seeing more and more people who may have some form of gluten allergy. I see it every day; I see the struggles they have. Yes, some of it may be genetic, but also some is also from bad eating habits. So why not make a change, try something different. Let’s do more fresh foods, let’s cut back on the processed foods and go back to basics, which is what fresh foods, especially ones you have in your garden is all about.
What I find astonishing about doing nothing but fresh foods is, the food tastes so much better than what you get in a can. I know we live in a world where we want everything so very quickly. Just because you can get it quick, doesn’t mean actually good for you.
You know what the best thing I have discovered by doing this healthy, fresh food challenge is? The natural energy I have. Yes, you read that right. I don’t need coffee to keep going. I actually have noticed I have natural energy. When the food is fresh and not processed, it has a good amount of vitamins and minerals in them. That is one the keys to having energy throughout the day.
When you live in an apartment, growing fresh veggies can be a challenge. That is why I love the Farmer’s Market. Here in Cleveland, we also have what is called The West Side Market. It is a place where you can get good fresh produce from farmers and vendors three times a week. Also, they have a farmer’s co-op program that lets you get a box of fresh fruits and veggies from farms in North West Ohio. So these places and programs have been my best friend this month.
So, when The Sunday Supper Movement teamed with American Family Insurance and the theme is Family Favorites Turned Healthy, I was super excited, this perfect for me since I am doing this fresh food challenge this month for my own health. I decided to create a recipe that focused on Super Foods and accommodating special diet needs such as gluten-free or allergies.

Why? Well, as I said in the beginning, I am seeing so many people becoming allergic to gluten. Out of 40 patients, I draw each day for lab work about 15 of them are being tested for food allergies, like gluten. Plus, I have a co-worker who has a gluten allergy, I learned that gluten is in many things you would not even realize, like lip gloss for example.
So, what can I do that is healthy, tasty, and gluten-free? Basing on the idea of steak on the grill with a side of slaw, I decided on the portobello mushroom. It has a good, meaty taste. It has protein, and many vegetarians will eat it as a burger. This would be a perfect food to work with. So let’s make full of flavor and have it for a cookout.
 You can have a healthy recipe, the secret is the flavor. If a recipe is full of flavor, no one will even realize that is is a healthy recipe.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. First, You want to make the slaw. Place the shredded cabbage, peppers, and shallots into a bowl and mix them well.
  2. Next, whisk the lemon juice, sugar, and 1/3 cup olive oil together. Season with a little salt and pepper. Then after it is whisked together, add to the red pepper mixture. Toss it well and set it aside.
  3. Next work on the cucumber dressing, chop up the cucumber and add into your blender with the vinegar. Puree the cucumber and slowly add the olive oil into the blender to allow it to emulsify into the dressing. When all incorporated, set that aside as well.
  4. Now, we will make these portobellos, brush the caps with a little olive oil and season them with a little salt and pepper. Place them on the grill, the inside area down first. Allow to cook for about 2-3 minutes. Then flip them over and cook the other side for about 2 minutes. Just before you take them off the grill, sprinkle a little the fresh, minced garlic onto the caps, and then take them off the grill.
  5. To plate these, put a little the red pepper slaw down first, then place the portobello on top, making sure that the inside area with the garlic is face up. Then drizzle some the cucumber dressing on the top, then ENJOY!
