Portobello mushrooms with tomatoes, spinach and goat’s cheese

Meaty portobello mushrooms are an under-utilised vegetable. Their gorgeous savoury flavour and toothsome texture take the place of meat very nicely – and with more fibre.

This recipe is full of flavour and nutrients and makes a great main course with a vibrant, well-dressed, salad.
