Preparing a Portobello Mushroom

Begin by gently washing the portobello mushroom with cool water and then wiping it with a soft paper towel or cloth. If you feel the mushroom is still dirty, you can use a soft scrub brush and lightly scrub the outside of it too. Although it isn’t necessary to remove the stem, it can sometimes be a bit woody tasting, so it is good practice to take it out. Using a spoon, gently scrape the gills and base of the stem until the mushroom is cleaned out. Be careful not to remove all of the fleshy parts though. Now your mushroom is ready to be stuffed!
