Helps you: Control cholesterol and fill up on fibre
4 x 16 cm diameter pita bread circles
olive oil spray
1 cup Red onion slivers
1 cups Portobello mushroom caps, sliced
Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
85 g Crumbled gorgonzola (or blue cheese)
6 tsp chopped Garlic blend (such as Gourmet Garden Blend)
1 tsp Fresh rosemary leaves
1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Put pita circles directly on oven rack and cook 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until just crisped through.
2. Meanwhile, preheat medium frying pan over medium heat. Spray pan with oil, then add onions and mushrooms. Cook until tender. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat and stir cheese.
3. Spread garlic over crisped pitas. Top with mushroom mixture and sprinkle with rosemary. Cut each pizza into four wedges. Server immediately.
Raise a cap to mushrooms: They're rich in total dietary fibres, including those associated with lower cholesterol (chitin) and healthy hearts (beta-glutan), according to a study at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. And garlic is full of health benefits: It boosts the immune system and helps moderate blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol.
If you love vegies...
