Is it OK to eat the gills of a portobello mushroom?
Mushroom gills are totally edible, but in some cases, they make a dish unsightly. Most recipes that call for mushrooms don’t require that you remove the gills on the underside of the caps.

Begin by removing the large, woody stem with your fingers and the dark gills of the mushroom by scraping them out with a spoon, leaving plenty of room for the stuffing. Pre-cook portobellos either in a skillet or in the oven, but first, cut three or four slits into the caps to help the water release quickly.
