Shiitake Mushroom and Avocado Sammie

Shiitake Mushroom and Avocado Sammie


  • Shiitake mushrooms (about 6 caps)
  • 1 thin slice white onion
  • Pinch garlic powder
  • 2 slices quality bread (I used an Italian Rosemary bread)
  • 1 slice Provolone cheese
  • 1/2 ripe avocado


  1. In a skillet, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add shiitake mushroom caps and saute for about 5 minutes, flipping occasionally.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon water, onions, and garlic powder to the skillet and allow water to evaporate.
  3. While the onions and mushrooms continue to cook, toast bread lightly in a toaster oven. Once toasted, add provolone cheese to one piece of bread so it can melt slightly.
  4. Spread the avocado on the other piece of bread and sprinkle just a pinch of salt over the avocado.
  5. Arrange the mushrooms and onions on the avocado, then top with the cheesy bread slice.
