yuba wrapped portabellas with pesto

yuba is "tofu skin." it is made by boiling down soy milk until it creates a thin film. you can make it on your own, but i tried once and i failed miserably. so you will likely have to take a trip to a well stocked asian market. well worth it.

a couple sheets of yuba, cut into squares
two portabella mushrooms
marinade: balsamic vinegar, splash of olive oil, salt and pepper

-cut portabellas into long strips, wash and marinade for at least 20 minutes
-preheat over t0 350
-lie yuba out on a flat surface
-lay down portabellas on edge closest to you, and spoon small amount of pesto over the mushrooms
-roll the yuba and mushrooms like sushi. you want to make sure there are at least a couple of yuba layers.

-place yuba rolls seam side down on a lightly oiled baking dish
-bake for about 15 minutes, until nice and crispy
-let cool, and then cut pieces so that each roll has one mushroom strip.

walnut-basil pesto:
about 20 basil leaves
hand full of walnuts
tbl of olive oil
a little lemon, salt, pepper
-put all ingredients in blender!
