This is for when you have absolutely no desire to cook--but you gotta get that protein in! And it's preferable that it taste good.
5 minute Portabello Mushroom Melt
1 medium portabello mushroom cap, stem removed, upended
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves (remove stems)
2-3 slices buffalo mozzarella (the kind that looks like a round ball; the best kind is packed in liquid. If you can't find that, get the one that's in the round ball)
Turn the mushroom cap upside down
Microwave for 4 minutes if you have the lowest-power/wattage microwave like me; 2 minutes if you've got a powerful microwave. The mushroom should be moist and tender.
Chop a reasonable amount of fresh basil (fresh is crucial for flavor) and completely fill in the mushroom cap.
Top with thick slices of buffalo mozzarella; be generous. Even if it's not lowfat, it's only 70 calories per slice. If you can find lowfat, be even more generous. When I made this, I used 3 thin/medium slices of full fat cheese. (I was low on calories). The mushroom only has 20 calories.
Mircowave until the cheese starts to melt down the side. About 1 minute.
[For more protein, and if you have the extra time, sautee a bit of shallot, garlic, and ground meat to add to the basil filling.]
150-170 calories, depending on amount of cheese
