Lemons 'n Lyme

When life gives you lemons, use them to beat Lyme

Smarty Pants


Aren’t I a smarty pants? I downloaded the wordpress app for my phone then just uploaded the pics from my phone onto my blog! YAY FOR USING MY COLLEGE BRAIN!

So here we goooooo…. Portobello Mushroom Pizza Deliciousness.

Yes, the “deliciousness” was necessary. All pictures will be at the end because of the confusing technological issues I am having.


3 portobello mushrooms

1 small onion chopped

About half a bunch of asparagus cut up

olive oil

Tomato sauce

Cheese (optional)

Garlic cloves (depending on how much you like garlic…. 1-3)

Spices of choosing- salt pepper and basil for sure

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Take stems out of mushrooms and place on baking sheet to bake for about 5 minutes.

While mushrooms are baking for a minute, sauté asparagus in some olive oil. About halfway through cooking asparagus add the onion and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add some basil.

I used italian pork sausage from Whole Foods. Cook in a skillet over stove, as well. I cooked it about halfway then took it off and chopped it into slices so it could sit on the pizza. Put it back on the burner to finish cooking through.

Spoon tomato sauce into the mushroom caps (however much you like 🙂 ) then add the veggies and top with the sausage. Pour a little more tomato sauce on top plus salt and pepper and basil. Any other spices you like, add em! If using cheese, sprinkle some cheese on top. I don’t do dairy so I opted out of it, you could also sprinkle nutritional yeast on top for a lactose free cheesy option!

Place back in oven for about 15-20 minutes or until mushrooms are soft and seem cooked through. Let cool and enjoy! It is easy enough to double this recipe and make more. This lasted me about 1.5 meals. Mostly out of deliciousness:)

It is also easy enough to use whatever veggies you like or meat choice. Very versatile yet delicious.

I hate portobello mushrooms but this was AWESOME! It didn’t taste gross and mushroom-y so if you are not a mushroom fan, have no fear and give this a shot! Just add lots of spices to really up the flavor and you won’t notice the mushroom at all!





Author: Lemons 'n Lyme

So, my name is Victoria. I was recently diagnosed with chronic/long-term Lyme Disease. It has been one of the biggest reliefs of my life. I finally have an answer for all the pain I've been in for years. I'm 20. I love to bake and cook. I created this blog to 1) chronicle my recovery 2) share my recipes. My recipes are geared to those with Lyme in terms of nutrition and anti-inflammatory, etc. My research has shown that eating a paleo/gluten-free/low-carb diet is best for those with Lyme, and although I try to stick with this I fail horribly at times. Follow along and feel free to contact me! :)
