We all love tasty, meaty, and flavorful sliders but, carbohydrates don’t have all of the fun. These portobello mushroom sliders are a perfect, healthier alternative for their chewy and umami flavor.    


Portobello mushrooms are one of the edible mushrooms that usually grow in the grasslands of Europe and North America. It is cultivated in various countries and is one of the most widely used in cuisines around the world.    


This variant of mushroom is a good source of vitamin B2, which helps the body produce energy by breaking down carbohydrates. It is also rich in selenium, niacin, vitamin B5, and phosphorus.    


These portobello sliders are quick and easy to make. Place the ingredients between mushroom caps, just like how a burger looks. You can also marinade the caps first in a mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, basil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook the sliders in an oven or griller if desired.    


What’s more, it can be a perfect addition to your vegan recipes. Replace meat with veggie meat or other alternatives to make it fit your special diets. Just be mindful of the substitutions, for it will affect the macronutrients in this dish.
