Greek Portobellos

These past 2 weeks I’ve been home alone and trying to make dinners with recipes that are things that MrMango would not necessarily be gung-ho about.  I figured that I would try out some of these recipes in his absence. One of said recipes was for Greek Portobello mushrooms, which are mushroom caps topped with a mixture of feta, olives, onions, and lemon juice and then broiled so that the cheese gets melty.

I was happy with the results of this recipe. It made for a nice light dinner and was very easy to make. The leftovers were wonderful chopped up and tossed with lettuce to make a salad.
