Healthy Recipes Collection
I recently contacted some of the best fitness minds from across the internet in search of some healthy recipes and snacks. Each person replied quickly and were extremely excited to contribute!
I would like to thank everyone who took part in this project!
Portobello Mushroom Pizza
I bought mushrooms straight away, tried it, and fell in love. The best part? It’s ready in a flash.
Carefully de-stem the shroom cap and rinse it well. Spray both sides lightly with oil, then place on baking sheet stemless-stem side up. Fill cap with your favorite marinara sauce, diced or sliced veggies, basil (fresh if you have it) and minced garlic, then top with mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of parm. Bake in a 400 degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes. BOOM.
Fun fact: I like to put sliced mushrooms on my mushroom pizza. Just because it’s FUNNY.
And I just read a great tip. Mushrooms release liquid when cooked, so try this to prevent sogginess. For each ‘shroom, take one sheet of aluminum foil and first roll it into a ‘rope’, then curve that ‘rope’ into a ring. Set each mushroom pizza on a ring which will elevate it and keep it from sitting in its own juices.
