Vegan and Delicious

This low-calorie, robust, healthy, portabella mushroom vegan recipe was a hit with my family—so much so that they requested it the next day! It is quick, simple, tasty, and worthy of going into your black book of favorite vegan recipes.

How to Choose Portabellas

When shopping for portabella mushroom, it is important that you choose ones that look healthy; i.e., firm, dry, and undamaged.

Note of Caution: Do Not Eat Raw

According to Vegetarian Times (2017), portabella mushroom in raw form contains a toxin called hydrazine, which is toxin-containing formaldehyde. It is suggested that since both chemicals are heat sensitive, it is recommended that portabella mushroom be cooked before being consumed.

My Vegan/Plant-Based Nutritional Lifestyle

July 2019, without any pondering, research, or contemplating, I switched from a traditional Western diet to a vegan/plant-based diet. The day that I decided that I was going forward, I went to my local produce market and bought two seeded watermelons and ventured into a four-day watermelon detox.

These four days were the best days of my life. The watermelons were perfectly ripe, juicy, and crisp. I was able to eat as much of it as I wanted without any guilt. Amazing! So, for four days, it was the watermelon, plenty of water, and me. To spruce things up, I dripped some fresh key lime juice over the watermelon, which gave it a nice burst. After the detox, I was ready to take on the full, non-negotiable vegan lifestyle.

While experimenting with some of my favorite ingredients, I created this fun, delicious, packed with flavor, and quick recipe. Please try it. I would love to hear your feedback. Enjoy!
