Grill and serve this flavorful vegetarian alternative on toasted buns.mushrooms are grown similar to white mushroomsThe portabella is a mature baby bella. It’s about three days older and is grown on a bed that has been thinned to allow the mushrooms to gain size. Portabella mushroom caps range in size from three inches to six inches in diameter.
