PORTOBELLO CARPACCIO WITH CHIMICHURRI

Carpaccio traditionally refers to thinly sliced meat that is served raw,
but it is also used to refer to the preparation of vegetables in similar way.
For this dish thinly slice portobello mushrooms and top with an herbaceous
chimichurri. This makes a really elegant vegan appetizer.
