Stuffed Portobello

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I like easy recipes, that is one of the reason I like these mexican stuffed Portobellos. They are very tasty with their earthy flavour and a kick from the jalapeño. Make the stuffing on the stove and finish them in the oven. You can enjoy them as a side or appetizer dish or if you want to go vegetarian, you can have them as your main dish.

Mushrooms grow only in the richest soils, this might be the reason they have many health benefits. They have vitamin B, which help us maintain a healthy metabolism and nervous system; and they are rich in minerals, like potassium, phosphorus, selenium and copper, these help us form strong bones, DNA, red blood cells and maintain a healthy immune system.

Recipe with in the recipe:

The stuffing in this recipe is delicious as a dip! You can enjoy it with tortilla chips! You don’t need to cook the cheese.

Enjoy!

  1. I SO wish I liked mushrooms!! Meals like this are so hearty for the plant based eater. It’s the ONE vegetable I can’t stand. HOWEVER, with that said, this looks delicious and even I would give it a bite!

    • Thank you for your comment Brittany. I think what many people don’t find appealing of mushrooms is its sometimes ruberish consistency. What I have found out is that if you dry them on a skillet or in the oven this consistensy changes, you might want to give it a try!
