This is an easy extra protein dish to complement a meal, perfect for when you’re just not sure if you have enough food.


Main ingredients

  • 6 portobello mushroom caps, cleaned

  • 3 tablespoons Gefen Olive Oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons salt, divided

  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 1 small zucchini, diced

  • 1 pound (1/2 kilogram) ground veal

  • 2 tablespoons Haddar Teriyaki Sauce (or use gluten-free if needed)


Prepare the Mushrooms


Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius).


Lay mushrooms on a baking sheet lined with Gefen Parchment. Drizzle with one tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.


Roast for 20 minutes or until cooked through and fragrant.

Prepare the Veal


Preheat a heavy-bottomed frying pan over medium heat. Heat one tablespoon olive oil. Sauté onion until medium brown; then add zucchini, along with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Sauté another 10 minutes or until cooked but not mushy. Transfer vegetables to a plate.


Heat remaining one tablespoon oil, then add the ground veal, one teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Brown until fully cooked and juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Add vegetables back to the meat, and add teriyaki sauce. Cook another two minutes until flavors meld.

To Serve


Place the mushrooms on a platter, then spoon the meat mixture over them.

so delicious. I do ground chicken instead, it’s it just as good if not better. I also use the stems of the mushrooms diced with the veggies. Hold off on the black pepper to! thanks for this amazing recipe!
