Portobello mushroom cheesesteak sandwich is made with meaty portobello mushrooms, peppers, onions and vegan cheese for a vegan version of a classic sandwich.
If you are a cheesesteak lover you may be wondering why leave the steak out of this delicious classic? Mushrooms, when they are cooked properly make a fantastic substitute for meat. In fact, I use them often as a meat substitute like these veggie burgers and these vegan BLT sandwiches.
You don't have to be vegetarian or vegan to enjoy these sandwiches either! The mushrooms have a meaty texture and they soak up the flavors of the foods they are cooked with. You won't even miss the meat.
I add a splash of tamari sauce to the mushrooms while they are cooking which really brings out the umami flavor. Pile the mushrooms onto your favorite roll, add sauteed peppers and onions and top with cashew cheese.
