Portobello's are the vegetarian's steak!  But even the meat-eater will enjoy this recipe. 

The thick, meaty texture of the portobello, combined with the quinoa and nutty flavor from the walnuts are an absolute must try!  I made this recipe for dinner last night and I can't decide what I like best about it.  From the balsamic vinegar marinade to the cranberries and walnuts, each flavor adds something surprising and delicious to the overall taste.     

Another plus...quinoa is the only grain that is a complete protein source.  Since quinoa tastes great as a leftover, pack any leftover quinoa mixture for weekday lunches.

Cleaning Tip for Portobello's:

A plant native to the Mediterranean, lavender (Lavandula angustifolia or Lavandula officinalis) gets its fragrance from the essential oil found inside its flowers. In aromatherapy, lavender essential oil is often used for its many healing properties.
