    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 medium onion, sliced
    • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed, sliced
    • 1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    • 2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano, or 2 teaspoons dried
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

    • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
    • 3 ounces thinly sliced reduced-fat provolone cheese
    • 4 whole-wheat buns, split and toasted
  • Directions

    • 1 Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add mushrooms, bell pepper, oregano and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are wilted and soft, about 7 minutes.
    • 2 Reduce heat to low; sprinkle the vegetables with flour and stir to coat. Stir in broth and soy sauce; bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat, lay cheese slices on top of the vegetables, cover and let stand until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
