the famous Portobello mushroom. You’ve undoubtedly come across
Portobello mushrooms in the form of a delicious vegetarian burger or
sautéed with onions in an Italian restaurants. The Portobello
mushroom has a strong flavour which stands out in any dish. I love
slicing Portobello mushrooms up and sautéed with fresh garlic and
thyme, adding a bit of balsamic vinaigrette at the end. You and
your family will eat these right up!
of going to the grocery store and paying around $4/pound for
lower-quality, non-organic portobellos, why not just grow them at
home? Follow the instructions below for a step-by-step guide on how
to grow mushrooms: Portobello edition!
may be surprised to find out that the Portobello is actually just the
mature form of the Agaricus bisporus mushroom, or the White Button
Mushroom. To grow Portobello mushrooms, simply follow the
instructions in my <a href="http://growingmushrooms.blogspot.com/2016/01/how-to-grow-white-button-mushrooms.html">How
to Grow White Button Mushrooms post</a>. Instead
of harvesting all of your white button mushrooms, leave a few behind
to grow to full maturity.
When these mushrooms have reached between 4-5 inches in diameter,
they have become Portobello mushrooms and are ready to become your
next veggie burger.
