Since I did another round of the 3-Day Refresh this week, I didn’t cook much as far as original recipes are concerned! Monday was leftovers, Tuesday through Thursday was the Refresh, and then today I had to cook SOMETHING for the blog!
I am pleased that the Refresh worked – I lost 5.5lbs, but even better, I am not craving all the bad things that I was eating all of September, so I feel confident I am on a great trajectory to health, like I was before a month of visitors and being tourists in our area!
But I did want something delicious to celebrate, so I kind of just combined a few things that sounded delicious together!
So here we go – Primal Portabella Piles!
I started by sauteeing about 3/4lb bacon, which was cut into small (about 1″) slices. We buy the “step two” bacon at Whole Foods, and this time it was Black Forest. While the bacon was cooking (and of course, taking time to move it around in the pan so it didn’t burn), I cleaned 8 portabella mushrooms and put them in a pan.
Once the bacon was cooked, I removed it and put it into the portabella caps. I added a bunch of spinach to the pan, and stirred it in the bacon & bacon fat until it wilted. Once it was mostly wilted, I added a half pound of scallops and turned the heat to high! After a couple minutes, I added a little heavy cream from grassfed cows! I cooked these until the scallops were cooked, and then spooned the mixture onto the top of the mushrooms!
Finally, I put some whole mozzarella that I had previously grated onto the top, and put the pan in the Nu Wave (or oven at 350 degrees) and cooked it for about 8 minutes – until the cheese melts, the mushroom cooks, and the scallops have a little golden tints to them! 😉
The great thing about these, is you can really go crazy and put anything you want on them to really make them “your own” with what you want!
I hope you enjoy! I am excited to have this week to do more cooking!
