In this recipe, caramelized shallots and meaty portobello mushrooms top a crusty whole grain bread. The savory flavors of the shallots and mushrooms mingle with a creamy, yet refreshing homemade cashew cream sauce that's both lemony and a little cheesy. This is a sandwich that you need to eat with a fork and knife and it's best served with a bowl of soup.
