Ingredients

    ~ROASTED RED PEPPER AIOLI~
    1/2 cup Best Foods/Helman's Light Mayonnaise
    3 cloves garlic, pressed
    1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
    7 oz roasted red pepper (2 large peppers)

    ~PORTOBELLO MUSHROOMS~
    4 Large Portobello mushrooms
    1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 Tbsp olive oil
    1/8 tsp salt
    1 tsp dried basil
    1 tsp dried oregano
    3 cloves garlic, pressed

    4 100% Whole Wheat Orowheat Sandwich Thins
    4 slices of Sargento Reduced Fat Provolone cheese

    One additional roasted red pepper cut into slices for topping the portobello and cheese.

Directions

Make the Aioli first so it has time to allow the tastes to blend:
.
Combine in a food processor: the mayonnaise, 3 cloves of garlic, lemon juice, and 7 ozs (2 peppers worth) roasted red pepper. Spoon into a container and put in the refrigerator to sit. This recipe makes a full cup of aioli (at least double the amount you would need for 4 sandwiches). I recommend using it in other recipes or freezing for your next batch of portobello sandwiches.
.
Marinade and Mushrooms:
In a ziplock bag, combine balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic, salt, basil, and oregano. Shake to mix. Take the portobello mushrooms and remove the stems. Using a spoon, remove the gills from the underside of the mushrooms. Add the mushrooms to the bag of marinade and marinate for at least half an hour ( I usually prep them the night before and pull them out for dinner the next day and then skip the basting), turning occasionally to make sure all the mushrooms are equally marinated.
.
Preheast your grill for medium high heat.
.
Brush grate with oil, or spray with cooking spray away from the heat or flame. Place mushrooms on the grill, reserving marinade for basting. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until tender. Brush with marinade frequently. Top with cheese during the last 2 minutes of grilling.
.
Assemble the sandwich with the wheat buns, mushroom with cheese, 2 Tbsp of Aioli sauce, and extra roasted red pepper slices.
.
NOTE: To roast red peppers, place your rack on the top level in your oven, allow the oven to preheat for 5 minutes, place large strips of red pepper on a sheet skin side up. Broil for 8-10 minutes until pepper skin starts to char, turning half way through cooking. Pull skin off the pepper strips once they have cooled (this is why larger strips of pepper are better - the more strips you have, the longer it takes to peel them.)

    I made these today, with slight variations. Being in the mood for a spicey, southwestern flavor, I made a chipotle aiole, rather than using sweet peppers. I also used chili powder, cayenne, cumin, and cilantro in the marinade. Caramelized onions,avacado,roasted tomatoes also. - 4/26/08

    I thought this was excellent. We are not vegetarians, but I am trying to add vegetarian meals to the list. I thought the flavors were great, however, my husband and 1 of two kids didn't like the texture of the mushroom (this is new to us). Everyone thought the aoli ws great! - 12/12/08

    Wow! This was so full of flavor. The Roasted Red Pepper Aioli was a great addition to the marinated portobello. I would make this for company. I did it on the stove top in a non-stick pan. - 4/15/08

    I love it! I stuck to the recipe and they came out great. My husband wasn't too enthused, but he doesn't like anything with vinegar of any form. - 7/5/10

    Very tasty! I used a Ciabatta Bread/Roll, it gives a chewier sensation, I had a portabella sandwich yesterday on a regular hamburger bun, bun was too mushy. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I'll definately eat it again!! - 4/10/09

  • My entire family liked this! It was an easy summer dinner. I made the aioli and marinade in the morning, then just threw it on the grill at dinner time. I had a jar of roasted piquante peppers, so it had a bit of spice that regular roasted red bell peppers wouldn't have. But it was fabulous! - 6/9/10

  • I make a recipe very similar to this but I have never "cut the gills" out of the mushrooms. Very good this way (more mild flavor on the marinade that way). Suggestion for people that don't do "meatless" - add sliced chicken or shaved steak and press the sandwich like a panini. Thanks for the recipe! - 2/25/10
