Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

In terms of texture, portobello mushrooms are probably the closest vegetarian alternative to steak. While you won’t be able to fool meat eaters with a grilled portobello mushroom sandwich, you might convince them that a great meal doesn’t necessarily have to include meat.
