07-23-2009, 03:39 AM
I'm new to this forum and recently diagnosed with IC. Having a terrible time finding things I can eat and recipes that tempt me. I'm also trying to lose wieght at the same time which is extremely hard having to watch what I eat with the IC.
Was wondering if anyone had any recipes using portabella mushrooms? I heard they are really good and okay for IC?

Grill them on a grill pan with some herbs.
Stuff it with some rice and herbs and bake it and then if you like red peppers, make a red pepper sauce to pour over it.
You can also stuff it with cornbread stuffing or regular stuffing, too.
Make some portabello stuffed ravioli and serve it with a brown butter sage sauce. amazing!
Cut them up and maybe add in another type of mushroom and make some mushroom soup. Also add some carrot and celery. That's really good.
Use them to make a mushroom ragu and serve it over grilled polenta.
You can also just add them to pasta, too. Speaking of pasta, you can cut them up and use them to make a white sauce lasagna with mushrooms.
Really, carmelized mushrooms are just so good in general! haha

I don't have access to portabellas, but I do love chantarelles --- I just saute them in butter with a few slices of leek, then serve them with a meat --- I especially like them with steak.

I usually keep baby bellas on hand. They have so much flavor and a great texture.
I'm sure someone will mention omelets.
My recent favorite is sauteing chopped green onions and chunks of mushroom in a little olive oil, then adding zucchini fingers and a pinch of italian herbs or herbs de Provence, and some salt. After sauteing enough to bring the flavors out, add a tablespoon or two of water and cover tightly until it's cooked to your taste. I have it as a side vegetable or on top of pasta.

A month or so ago I posted a recipe for portabello/spinach lasagna with homemade alfredo sauce. The alfredo sauce makes it really unhealthy, but it certainly tastes good!

In the summer I like to grill portabellas on the outdoor grill, just brushed with a little garlicky olive oil. And they are great as part of a veg kabob with peppers, onions, etc. In the winter I roast them in the oven, along with new potatoes, red onions, carrots, fennel, whatever. All these veggies need before roasting is a coating of olive oil and some kosher salt.
