How to cook portabella mushrooms

We adore mushrooms for their forever-expanding versatility and their easy to add, nutritional value! Often it’s sliced button mushrooms that we conveniently throw into our meals but we mustn’t forget above the delicious larger varieties.

Portabella Mushrooms or sometimes named Portobello mushrooms, are a fantastic larger variety, with a firm and dense meaty texture and deep rich flavour. They also add a gorgeous element of unami to meals. Whether they’re simply tossed on the BBQ, or used as an edible base for oven-baked eggs, portabella’s are a fantastic mushroom variety to cook with.
