Portobello Mushroom Salpicao (Quinoa Bowl)

I think I’m turning into a semi-vegetarian. Yeah, I know there isn’t a semi-vegetarian. You have to either be a vegetarian or not. The past four months, I opted for mostly vegetables, chicken, and fish because I need to (you know, hypertension and all). But these days, I notice that majority of my food choices are vegetables. Sometimes with chicken and fish, other times without. Oh, and I’ve come to love vegetarian restaurants too!

I do eat pork or beef too but most of the time just to have a taste or give it a try. Well, I cook them for my family so I don’t think it’s something I’m gonna give up completely.

Yesterday’s brunch, though, was Portobello Mushroom Salpicao. I’ve been craving that buttery, garlicky flavor of Salpicao but I didn’t feel like eating meat. I know portobello mushrooms have that meaty texture plus I have some in the fridge.. Yaaay!

It just went on a hot skillet with some olive oil and fried garlic, I added liquid seasoning and worcestershire sauce, then ended with a bit of butter and more fried garlic on top.

I assembled it on a bowl together with some quinoa and steamed broccoli… Super duper yummy and super duper healthy.

  • 300g portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp liquid seasoning
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 8 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter

  2. Add sliced portobello mushroom and sauté for 30 seconds.Add liquid seasoning and worcestershire sauce.
  3. The mixture will become saucy because the mushroom will produce some liquid. Simmer for about 1-2 minutes until some of the liquid evaporates.
  4. Turn off heat and add butter. Mix thoroughly until butter is melted.
  5. Transfer to a serving plate and sprinkle with fried garlic.
  6. OR turn it into a Portobello Mushroom Salpicao Quinoa Bowl by putting in into a bowl with 1/2 cup cooked quinoa and 1 cup steamed broccoli.

  1. I wish I can give up meat too (but I can’t do quinoa – I think people lose weight because all your food budget goes to buying quinoa lol), but I can just imagine those garlicky mushrooms with beef and I’m drooling!!!
