Today's experiment ended up quite delicious. I made juicy, meaty portabello steaks with potatoes (seasoned with a no salt seasoning) and some garlicky greenbeans (again no salt). The result was YUM! Thanks again to Happy Herbivore for the portabello steak recipe! There were a few things I changed to the recipe. I used reduced sodium tamari sauce in lieu of soy sauce and I didn't use any sherry/mirin nor any additional salt to sprinkle at the end. The meal was tasty enough without!
I will be adding these to the rotation for sure. The entire "steak" is a whopping 55 calories. I was thinking, being the frugal person I am, I should include in each blog post a cost analysis of each meal per serving. I'll go back and edit the old posts too.
4 portabello steaks - $6
some regular potatoes - $1
1 small onion - $.50
3 garlic cloves - $.25
green beans (premium frozen packaged) - $2.20
=about $10 for the meal or $2.50 per serving (not including incidentals)

Today I'm at 1,700 mg of salt for the entire day. That is AWESOME in my book! What's better is that even if I wasn't on a plant based, low sodium diet, I'd make this meal! This get's the Nick stamp of approval.
