HEART HEALTHY RECIPE: "Portobello Mushrooms with Provolone"

In honor of Healthy Heart Month, I'm posting a recipe right from the experts on heart health: the Mayo Clinic!

In honor of Healthy Heart Month, I thought I'd post a recipe from the experts on heart health themselves, the Mayo Clinic and no—the 'mayo' here doesn't mean Kraft!!! Yes, the Mayo clinic actually posts Heart Healthy recipes... who knew, (well, I did but now we all do) LOL! This recipe really is the bomb! At the bottom of the page under the recipe, I'm including the link to this part of their site so that you can log on and cook your heart healthy everyday.

Until Next time,

Eat well - Live well....



    • 2 portobello mushrooms, stemmed and wiped clean
    • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • 1/4 cup grated (1 ounce) provolone cheese


Preheat the broiler (grill). Position the rack 4 inches from the heat source. Lightly coat a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place the mushrooms in the dish, stemless (gill) side up.

In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, brown sugar, rosemary and garlic. Pour the mixture over the mushrooms. Set aside for 5 to 10 minutes to marinate.

Broil (grill) the mushrooms, turning once, until they're tender, about 4 minutes on each side. Sprinkle grated cheese over each mushroom and continue to broil (grill) until the cheese melts. Transfer to individual plates and serve immediately.

The only way we will get over our American addiction to sugar will be to stop using it. There is no reason this recipe should have sugar added to it.

You think Americans are addicted to sugar? How are we different from other countries?
