Portobello Pizza

If you read our latest book, The Nutrition Twins’ Veggie Cure, you know how much we adore Portobello mushrooms—not only because they are scrumptious and feel so amazingly meaty to chew, but also because they are only 21 calories per mushroom cap and great for your heart and your health in so many ways. Plus, the caps make the most awesome subs for much higher-calorie bread! Did you see our Sunny Side Eggs in a Portobello “Bagel”?
