So here's an interesting thing...about five or so years ago a friend visiting our house went on about portabello mushrooms...how like when they're done right they're almost like a fine steak. Since that time my wife, who before that had never ever eaten a mushroom in her life, has been all over portobello mushrooms. Loves em.
But she won't eat ANY OTHER KIND OF MUSHROOM. It's a total brain ****. I try to tell her if she likes portobella she'll like other mushrooms as well. Her response" portobella is not a mushroom. It's portobella. Everything elseis a mushroom. And weird, disgusting, and gross.
Just add some different types of mushrooms and dont say anything she will just ask what that background flavor is and then tell her...a lot of stuff is made from mushroom base and shed be surprised..
