Portabella LT Sandwich


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large portabella mushroom cap, cut into 1/8-inch thick slices
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Sliced bread (substitute gluten-free if preferred)
  • Vegan mayonnaise substitute
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Lettuce of your choice (Romaine or Bibb work well)


  1. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat.  Carefully lay mushroom slices in the oil and fry on one side until liquid begins to be expressed, about 2-3 minutes.  Flip each slice and fry on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.  Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  2. To assemble sandwiches, spread a healthy serving of vegan mayonnaise substitute on two slices of bread. Stack a few lettuce leaves, a few slices of fried mushroom, and one to two tomato slices on the sandwich and enjoy!
