Boredom. That’s usually where I get my ideas from.

Yesterday I was hungry but didn’t know what I wanted to eat. I was out of leftovers. The husband wasn’t home to tempt me with fast food. And I had no desire to make a BORING old ham sandwich.

Then I remembered I picked up two HUGE Portabello mushroom caps last weekend. They just looked so good I had to buy them.

But what to DO with them?

I considered making a Cheddar Pepper Stuffed Portabello Burger but I had no buns. :( Then I though about a Pressed Portabella Sandwich with Roasted Peppers and Red Onion but I didn’t feel like making something that messy.

So I continued to rummage through my fridge.

A ha! Hummus.

Oh! and I have wraps!

And of course, I always have a bag of baby spinach. :)

That’s it! The seed was planted for simple, tasty, wrap. And that’s exactly what I ended up with.

Here’s how I did it… Grilled Portabello and Hummus Wrap

  • 1 tbsp balsalmic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp tried thyme
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1 Portabello cap
  • 2 tbsp your favorite store bought hummus
  • A handful of baby spinach
  • Your favorite large Wrap or Tortilla

Mix the vinegars, honey, and spices.

Slice the Portabello about 1/4 of an inch thick (or thicker if you like the meaty texture.)

Put the vinegar mixture and sliced mushroom in a plastic baggy. Let sit for at least 20 minute. Longer the better.

When ready to make, grill the mushrooms 3-4 minutes a side based on thickness. I cooked mine in the George Foreman for about 3 minutes. (note: Save the marinade.)

    wow! that looks great, and has a lot of protein. I wanted to tell you Roni that I got those wraps, which my husband insisted he wouldn’t like and he…LOVES them. Oh yeah another win for you:)

    Hi, I just found your blog and I am definitely going to keep up with it. I have a boyfriend who is JUST AS PICKY as your husband, if not more, so it’s interesting to read what he will eat. My bf has the same diet — Mac & Cheese, processed foods, etc. I eat a more healthy lifestyle with fresh and frozen veggies, lean meats, and healthy fats. Can’t wait to keep reading!

    This looks just wonderful. I love hummus and portobella mushrooms. I so admire how you can just look in the fridge and come up with such wonderful dishes. I have to use a recipe. This is on the MUST try soon list.

    Have you tried to make your own hummus? It’s cheaper and so much tastier!

    1 can chick peas
    1 Tbs tahini
    1 tsp garlic
    1 tsp lemon juice
    salt and pepper to taste

    I vary it depending on my mood. I add roasted red pepper or jalepenos with accompanying spices. It is AWESOME!
