Servings 2


  • 2 large portabello mushrooms (or 4 smaller ones)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 4 slices of your favourite sandwich bread
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 large ripe tomato, sliced
  • 4 large leaves crunchy green lettuce
  • 1 small avocado
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Slice portabellos into chunky strips.
    Heat oil and butter in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add portabellos and cook, tossing them often until just tender and golden brown.
  • Add the miso paste and toss to coat them well. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise onto two slices of bread. Top with lettuce and sliced tomato. Season the tomato. Top the tomato with miso basted portabello slices.
  • In a small bowl roughly mash the avocado with a fork. Season with salt and lemon juice. Spread onto the other two slices of bread and top the sandwiches. Serve.

 *Sandwich tip:

  • Wrap sarmies tightly in baking or wax paper. Tie with a string. Slice in half and then eat easily without losing any goodness!
