Portabella Sandwich Stack

Heather, the blogger behind the Paleo cooking blog Multiply Delicious, developed this flavorful recipe as an alternative to the traditional burger. As someone who practices the Paleo diet, she thought the mushrooms would be a great bun substitute and she was right! Try this recipe for a guilt-free lunch, whether you're Paleo or just looking for a satisfying meal.

4 portabella caps
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 boneless, skinless chicken cutlet, cooked (and cut into two pieces)
2 slices tomato
1/2 cup fresh spinach leaves
2 slices cooked turkey bacon, or bacon of choice
3 tbsp guacamole

1. Gently scoop out the gills and stems from the undersides of the mushrooms. 

 

2. Heat coconut oil in a skillet and cook mushrooms for about three-to-five minutes on each side or until the mushrooms turn golden brown on the top and become tender. 

 

3. Remove the mushrooms from the pan. On one mushroom, pile on cooked chicken, turkey bacon, tomato, spinach and 1 1/2 tablespoons of guacamole. Top with the other mushroom. 

 

4. Repeat with other mushrooms.

 

5. Cut the sandwiches in half or eat whole. 

 

Makes two sandwiches.
