Low carb recipe for Avocado Cream Portobellos which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 6 small portobello mushrooms (My grocery store has these under the name
  2. Baby Bellas.)
  3. cup (60 ml) olive oil
  4. 2 cloves garlic
  5. 1 tablespoon (4.2 g) dried thyme
  6. 2 dashes hot pepper sauce
  7. 1 small black avocado
  8. 3 tablespoons (45 g) sour cream
  9. 2 tablespoons (20 g) minced red onion
  10. Salt
  11. 6 slices bacon

Cooking Instructions

Start a charcoal fire or preheat a gas grill.

Remove the stems from your portobellos (save them to slice and saute for omelets or to serve over steak!) and set the mushroom caps on a plate.

Measure the olive oil and crush one of the cloves of garlic into it; then stir in the thyme and the hot pepper sauce.

Using a brush, coat the portobello caps on both sides with the olive oil mixture.

Next, cut open the avocado, remove the pit, and scoop it into a small mixing bowl.

Mash it with a fork.

Stir in the sour cream, the onion, and the other clove of garlic, crushed.

Add salt to taste.

Now we have to get your bacon cooking.

Lay it on a microwave bacon rack or in a glass pie plate, and cook it on high for 6 minutes (times may vary a bit depending on the power of your microwave).

While your bacon is cooking, go grill your mushrooms! Lay them on an oiled grill over well-ashed coals or over a gas grill set to medium to medium-low.

Grill for about 7 minutes per side or until done through, basting frequently with the olive oil mixture?you'll also want a water bottle to put out flare-ups.

When your mushrooms are appealingly grilled, put them back on their plate and march them back to the kitchen.

Check your bacon; if it's not crisp, give it another minute or two and then drain it.

Divide the avocado mixture between the mushrooms, piling it high in a picturesque fashion.

Crumble a slice of bacon over each stuffed mushroom and serve.
