Ingredients:
2 teaspoons oil
2 portobello mushrooms, de-stemmed and de-gilled

handful of baby spinach
a few sprigs parsley (optional)

Method:
1. First, rub the oil over both of portobellos. Sear them on both sides over medium-high heat in a non-stick skillet. Remove them from the skillet, let cool, and then slice thinly.

2. Next, add the butter to the skillet and toast the first side of the bread in the butter. Flip the bread slices, top two with the cream cheese (evenly divided between two slices), and sprinkle the cream cheese evenly with the garlic powder.

3. To the other two bread slices, sprinkle on the cheese, Parmesan, and spinach–evenly divided between the tough. Divide the sliced mushrooms on top. Add the parsley sprigs, if using.

4. Top the two cream cheese bread slices with the other two slices of bread and grill on both sides until golden brown. Serve immediately.
