Portobello Mushroom Sandwich

What you need: 

1/2 portobello mushroom
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 clove garlic (sliced)
1 handful spinach leaves
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 small onion (sliced)
salt to taste
vegan mayonnaise (I use Vegenaise)
grated vegan cheddar soy cheese
2 slices of bread or sandwich roll

What you do: 

Prepare marinade by mixing 1/4 cup olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and Italian seasoning together. Slice portobello mushroom into longer easy to eat pieces. Place in marinade and make sure all pieces of the mushroom get covered in marinade. Set aside.
Heat skillet on med-high and add 1 Tablespoon olive oil, black pepper, and garlic clove. When garlic becomes tender add onion and salt. Heat until onions are transparent. Add spinach and cook until somewhat wilted. Add mushrooms and leftover marinade to skillet and mix around. I also had just a touch more olive oil. Let cook for approx. 3 minutes then stir mixture around again. Let cook for approx. another 3 minutes. Meanwhile, toast bread in toaster or oven. When done toasting, place bread on skillet face down. Press down with fork or spatula for about 30 seconds so the flavor and seasonings in skillet get on the bread. Put bread on plate with seasoned side face up. Spread Vegenaise on bread. Take mixture from skillet and put on one side of the bread. Spread veggie shreds on top. Close sandwich and enjoy!
I eyeballed measurements for this recipe when I made it so feel free to add (or not add) what you feel would taste good.

Yummy!  I've made this several times (always double to feed two).  This last time I made it, I was in more of a hurry, so didn't marinate the mushrooms, but just poured on the marinade when I added the mushrooms to the skillet.  It still worked great!  And it was one less dish to wash  ;D
I love Portobellos and this is a great way to have them on a yummy sandwich!  Also this last time, I added the shreds to the skillet at the end and let them melt there on top for just a minute or so, then put the mix on the bread.
I just reread the recipe and I don't think I've ever put in any salt or pepper, and it's tasty without I guess!
Thanks for the great recipe!  It's my husband's new favorite lunch to have!
