  • 3 cups baby arugula
  • 3 large portobello mushrooms

  • 1 tsp. wheat-free soy sauce


  • Place the arugula on a large platter. Prepare a grill to medium-high heat.
  • Clean mushrooms and remove stems and any debris. Grill for 10 minutes, turning once. Place mushroom caps on top of the arugula.
