Portobello Mushroom, Cashew Cheese and Sundried Tomato Sandwich with Fresh Basil and Drizzled Balsamic 12

Day four of my detox has arrived and other than a slight headache yesterday I feel fabulous.  After finding cane sugar in our vegan pea protein powder I typically use for my daughter’s smoothies (and had wanted to add to mine) I am on the lookout for sneaky hidden sugar.  Curses to the salt and sugar that lurk in every corner.  I will be diligent in my search and will leave no box, bag or container unturned to scour the ingredients.  At least there are no ingredients to read when you go buy some kale, oranges and mushrooms.  Mmm….mushrooms.
Say I were a tasty grilled Portobello mushroom.  What recipe would I want to be? 
Hide me in a bun you say?  NO!  I will BE the bun!  I will show my meaty, moist and flavorful self in all my glory on the outside of the sandwich!  And inside?  I want tart, sweet balsamic vinegar, creamy cashew cheese, fresh basil and tangy sundried tomatoes.
And oh what a sandwich I will be!
