  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, gills removed, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices

  • 12 ounces oyster or shiitake mushrooms, trimmed and coarsely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 ½ cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth or mushroom broth

  • ¼ cup dry sherry

  • 4 small whole-wheat hoagie rolls, halved lengthwise

  • 4 slices provolone cheese


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast-iron or heavy skillet over high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer to a medium bowl.

  2. Add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Add portobellos and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to the bowl. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and oyster (or shiitake) mushrooms to the pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Return the portobellos and onion to the pan. Stir in mustard and thyme; cook for 1 minute. Stir in broth and sherry and simmer for 5 minutes.

  3. Position a rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.

  4. Scoop out most of the inside of the rolls (reserve for making breadcrumbs, if desired). Place the rolls cut-side up on a baking sheet. Using a slotted spoon, divide the mushroom mixture among the bottom halves of the rolls (reserve the sauce). Top with cheese.

  5. Broil until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Place the top halves of the rolls on the sandwiches and serve with the sauce.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
