Week 3 - Urban Vegan - Philly Portobello Cheese Steak

This is the first recipe I have made from Urban Vegan and it was awesome! It is quick, cheap, easy and delicious. All of my favorite things! I halved the recipe and it still made a ton. And, I can't ever leave well enough alone so I made a few changes and additions. I'm not posting the entire recipe so if you want it, google it, email me or better yet, go buy the book! You won't be disappointed.

The original recipe called for 8 portobellos finely chopped. And like I said, I halved it, I still had to use 2 cutting boards to hold just 4 mushroom caps! I added a dash of Tabasco A-1 sauce while the shrooms were cooking for a little more flavor.

Before I cooked the mushrooms I caramelized some onion because really, what is a cheese "steak" without any onion? Next time I need to remember to grab a green pepper.  After the mushrooms and onion were all cooked up it was time to assemble: French roll slathered with Veganaise, hots, the caramelized onion, lettuce, tomato, pickles, some sliced Follow Your Heart Mozzarella(recipe called for cheddar but Mozz was all there was in the fridge) and last but definitely not least was the mushrooms!

And seriously, what is a quick comforting meal without some tots?
