Okay – this is not from Italy – not from my family – but soooo worth posting…Portabello Mushrooms are Italian, right???
On a trip down to the Masters with my husband and some friends, my friend Doreen and I ventured out to find some healthy local gluten free food. We came across a place in Augusta called the Mellow Mushroom. It was everything we were looking for. The decor was painted with bright colors, with retro 60’s graffiti on the walls and 60’s – 70’s music playing The gluten free menu items were wonderful – we almost couldn’t choose. We settled on a stuffed portobello mushroom with spinach, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, feta and a smidge of mozzarella – plated on a bed of mixed greens and drizzled with a balsamic glaze. We lucked out the next day and found one in Greensboro on the way back to our rental – jumped all over the vege pizza with a great gluten free crust.
There are tons of locations – all far from Connecticut – but if you can get to one – DON’T MISS IT.
