Hongos Portobello en Pasilla Adobo


If you have been following me for a while, you probably know that from time to time I like to cook vegetarian dishes for the wanna be vegetarian husband and yesterday we were invited to a vegetarian lunch and I thought to bring these delicious portobello mushrooms marinated in a pasilla adobo and then charred on a grilled pan.

They were a hit with everybody. The recipe for the adobo is in a previous post.

Let me know if you like this recipe, remember that your feedback is very important to me.

To make the adobo

To cook the Portobello mushrooms

  • Slice the portobello mushrooms and rub them with the pasilla adobo and set aside for 10 minutes before frying.
  • Heat the oil to medium heat on a large frying pan. Place the portobello mushrooms slice by slice, making sure not to over crowd the frying pan. Fry for 2 minutes on each side.
