Grilled Portobello and Vegetable Sandwich

Who said the grill is only for meat? This sandwich was really good and there was no meat involved here. Portobello, portabella ... same thing. I've always called it a portobello so I'm sticking with that =).

As it turns out, crimini mushrooms (which are baby portobellos) weren't the only thing I bought from Costco during my last visit. I also picked up a tray of these beautiful portobellos. I have 2 left. I have to decide what to do with them soon.

I used a slice of barbari bread, which I couldn't find nutritional information for on Weight Watchers, so I figured it to be about the same points as 2 slices of white bread. If you know the nutritional information on the bread you're using, then you can do your own calculation. The pesto is worth 1 point, and the vegetables are free. So add 1 point for the pesto plus whichever bread you choose, and you have the total for this sandwich. You can add a second piece of course, but I was more than happy to save the points and eat it just like this.

Grilled Portobello and Vegetable Sandwich
1 Serving | PointsPlus Per Serving : 4

1 big portobello mushroom
seasoning salt
1/2 sweet red or green pepper
9 cherry tomatoes
1 teaspoon store-bought pesto

Heat the grill to high while you're getting your veggies ready.

Sprinkle a little seasoning salt on your mushroom, remove the seeds from your pepper, and skewer your tomatoes.

Now, grill your veggies for 10 minutes or however long it takes for them to get a bit charred and soft.

Spread the pesto on your bread then top it with the grilled vegetables. So good! Add a medium corn on the cob for 2 points.
