Grilled Portobello Mushroom Sandwich With Roasted Red Peppers, Cucumbers, Carrots, Avocado, Hummus And Pesto

"Portobello sandwich with roasted red peppers, cucumber, carrots, arugula, tomato, pesto, avocado and hummus for lunch today. Although I love bread, I decided to throw the portobellos on my panini grill and use as the bread base. Sandwich was so tasty. #feedfeed #applegate"
