Portobello mushrooms (also spelled portobellas and portabellas) is one of my favorite meat substitutes ever. The texture is firm, yet tender and the taste is deep, with a hint of wild nature.

Gluten Free option

If you need to make this recipe gluten free, just swap the bulgur for rice. I like to use brown rice, but you can use any type of cooked rice you prefer. If I have leftover rice, I always use that instead og the bulgur and it turns out just as delicious.
Whichever type of rice you use, cook it in advance (I always like to use leftovers from yesterdays dinner) and mix it with all the veggies and spices in exactly the same way you would with the bulgur.
