is there a difference in protein amount between Portobello mushrooms and regular mushrooms?
Mushrooms have some protein, but would not be considered a high protein food. Portobello and regular white mushrooms have approximately the same protein content per 100 gram (100 grams of Portobello mushrooms contains 2.5 grams of protein and 100 grams of regular mushrooms contains 3.0 grams of protein). Portobello mushrooms are often thought to be higher in protein or are used as a protein alternate because they have a real meaty texture and can be used, for example, in a burger instead of a meat patty. However, in comparison to mushrooms, 100 grams of meat, poultry or fish would contain 20-25 grams of protein. Depending on the kind of vegetarian diet one is following, good protein choices include egg, legumes, milk, yogurt, cheese, soy milk, soy products (tofu and meat analogues), nuts and seeds. The Garden Vegetable Pie includes cheese, sesame seeds, milk, and brown rice, all of which help contribute to the protein content of the dish. Why is brown rice supposed to be so much better
