Baby Bella Tortas with Pine Nut Herb Pesto
Baby Bella Tortas with Pine Nut Herb Pesto



This recipe has been a big hit at home.  I’ll marinate the mushrooms as I chop the salad and mix up my pesto – delish!

16 crimini (button) mushrooms

1/4 cup Tamari sauce

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 TB minced Oregano

Freshly cracked pepper


Marinate the stemmed mushrooms with the above ingredients and allow to sit for 20-60 mins, tossing gently occasionally.

1 cup fresh basil, chopped

2 TB fresh chives, chopped

1.5 TB fresh sage, chopped

3 TB fresh oregano, chopped

1/2 cup pine nuts or brazil nuts

1/4 cup olive oil

2 cloves garlic

1/2 tsp Himalayan Salt

1/4 cup cherry tomatoes

In food processor, process all fresh herbs, pine nuts, 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic and salt into a slightly chunky consistency.

When mushrooms have softened and are marinated, stuff each mushroom with 1/4 tsp of pesto, depending on size. Place a slice on cherry tomato on top to garnish (or so this after warming).

Place on dehydrator sheet and dehydrate for 1-2 hours.  Or, simply place into a warmed oven to gently heat and then serve.
