Prebiotics for Gut Health
Loaded with Vitamins and Minerals
I love mushrooms! They are not only a great for anti-inflammation, they can also boost immunity and have anticancer properties. There are thousands of edible mushrooms, but only 10 are produced on industrial scale and found commonly in our grocery stores. Today’s star is going to be portobello mushroom! My kids love this so much they always fight over it!
Portobello mushrooms can be cooked in so many ways. Today, we are going to simply bake them with some high prebiotic ingredients as part of the recipe. Baked portobello mushrooms are so juicy and full of favors with all the goodies we are going to add. It’s simple and delicious. If you happen to do BBQ this weekend, this could be a great addition to put on the grill as well
All the added ingredients can be tailored easily. You can use whatever you have in your refrigerator.
- Portobello mushrooms, you can do one mushroom per person or two.
- Tomato sauce: any kind is fine. You can use pasta tomato sauce as well.

- Basils (powder is fine too)
- Arugula Artichoke hearts (in the glass bottle or cans)
- Vegan cheese or any kind of regular shredded cheese (optional)

Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 min until you start seeing the mushroom juice coming out.
While baking the mushrooms, chop onion and garlic and cook them in a pan with one TBSP of veggie stock or oil (oil is optional) for about 5 min. Leave caramelized onion on the side.

Take out mushrooms and assemble all the ingredient on top of the mushroom cavities: tomato sauce, caramelized onion and garlic, chopped artichoke hearts, chopped basil leaves, arugula and vegan (or regular) cheese if you are using any.
