Portobello Sloppy Joes

Portobello Sloppy Joes

These Portobello Sloppy Joes were a hit tonight with my husband! He has even asked me to make them again, so that is always a good sign.

Mushrooms make great substitutes for hamburger buns, especially if you’re following a paleo diet or Whole 30 program.

Portobello mushrooms contain a high amount of fiber and are low in calories, so this makes for a nutritious low carb meal. Portobello mushrooms also contain potassium, phosphorous, sodium and B vitamins.
