Even one of the gigantic mushroom caps won't add significantly to your daily calorie intake. So have two! Besides, portobello mushrooms provide you with copper, folate, niacin, potassium and calcium! And did you know portobello mushrooms are just crimini mushrooms grown to a large size?

Cooking Instructions


  • 2 Portobello Mushroom Caps

  • 3 oz (or more) Extra Ground Lean Chicken

  • 4 Cherry Tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup of Cucumber

  • 1/2 cup of Yellow Pepper

  • 1/8 cup Daiya Vegan Cheese Mozzarella Style Shreds

  • 2 TBSP Spicy Wholly Guacamole

  • 2 tsp Salsa

  • Seasoning


  1. Wash and dry 2 large portobello mushroom caps. Tear/cut off the stalks and use a spoon to scoop out a portion of the inside of the mushroom cap (to create a deeper bowl).

  2. Place the 2 caps (and all the extra pieces of the mushroom you removed) onto a non-stick skillet (or use non-stick cooking spray). Flip the caps to grill them on both sides.

  3. In another skillet (use non-stick cooking spray), cook extra lean ground chicken. Season it with black pepper.

  4. Wash and cut the cherry tomatoes, cucumber and yellow pepper.

  5. Once the chicken and caps are finished, measure 3 oz of chicken and place 1.5 oz into each mushroom bowl. Top the chicken in each bowl with: The leftover mushroom pieces, the cherry tomatoes, cucumber, yellow peppers and Daiya Vegan Cheese Mozzarella Style Shreds (1/16 cup for each bowl). You can use skim cheese if you have no dairy allergy.

  6. Place 1 TBSP of Spicy Wholly Guacamole on each bowl. (You can purchase it at your grocery store).

  7. Place 1 tsp of Salsa or Guacamole Seasoning on each bowl.

  8. Season with Black Pepper.

  9. Enjoy!
