Mushroom Marinara Sandwiches


Ever since I stopped eating meat, I’ve been looking for a meatless/vegetarian version of a meatball sub. These sandwiches really hit the spot and are a great substitution. While my boyfriend is a meat and sauerkraut kind of guy and these meatless substitutions aren’t the same for him, I definitely did not miss the meatballs at all.

Servings: 4  Total time: 30 minutes


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 cups baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 4 sandwich rolls


  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, mushrooms, and onions and cook for 8 minutes.
  2. Add marinara sauce, basil and oregano and cook for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Evenly divide mushroom mixture over 4 rolls. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Turn on oven broiler and place sandwiches on a baking sheet. Heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until cheese melts.
