Portobello Marinara with Pasta ~ Raw Vegan Recipe

Portobello Marinara with Pasta
serves 2 ~ $3.70 per serving
This is a warm and hearty dish, sure to satisfy during the colder months.

  • 2 portobello mushrooms ($3.00)
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced ($.40)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ($.20)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar ($.10)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.20)
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon favorite herb blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
zucchini pasta

  • 2 medium zucchini ($1.00)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil ($.10)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice ($.10)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)

marinara sauce

  • 1 large tomato ($1.00)
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes ($1.00)
  • 1 tablespoon agave ($.10)
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • salt and pepper


  • Brush
    off the mushrooms with a soft towel. Remove the gills underneath, if
    desired, by rubbing them gently with a finger (they should come off
    fairly easily). Slice the mushrooms into 1/2 inch slices.
  • Whisk
    together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, agave, garlic, herb blend (I
    used Mrs. Dash Chipotle), and salt. Toss with the sliced mushrooms and
    onion to coat well. Spread out on a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for
    about an hour.
  • While
    the mushrooms are warming, slice the zucchini into pasta noodle sized
    strips. I keep intending to get a spiralizer, but so far a vegetable
    peeler works well to make noodles. Whisk together the remaining
    ingredients and toss to coat. Let stand for about 45 minutes.
  • In a food processor, fitted with an “S” blade, process all marinara ingredients until very smooth.
  • Spoon out a bit of the marinara sauce and lay the mushrooms. Serve with a side of onions, and zucchini pasta.

  3. just wondered if you could also warm the 'shrooms in a chafing dish? (like with a candle under it)
    looks like awesomeness to me.
