Dietitian's Tip: 

To complete this meal, consider adding a serving of whole grains, such as ½ cup cooked quinoa, rice, or millet. Unlike rice, millet, or wheat, quinoa is a complete protein that supplies all of the amino acids your body needs. 


• 2 portobello mushroom caps
• 1 small roma tomato, diced
• 2 tablespoons pesto
• ¼ cup shredded low-fat mozzarella cheese


1. Use a dry or damp cloth to clean mushrooms. Remove stems by twisting gently.
2. Divide pesto evenly between 2 mushroom caps
3. Top with diced tomato and shredded cheese
4. Bake in oven for 15 minutes at 400 F
