Happy Wednesday My Friends!
How is the week treating you? My week is going by fast; not having school Monday sure sped the week along!
A while back I saw a list of the foods most commonly disliked by adults. Guess what was #1 on the list? Mushrooms! Heartbreaking, no? I really love mushrooms. They are so tasty and versatile and have a certain heartiness uncommonly found in non-meat foods. It just so happens that it has been a mushroom-y week in my household.
Monday night’s dinner was this….
Recipe from Clean Eating Magazine
4 large Portobello mushrooms
1 tsp olive oil
1 zucchini, chopped
1/2 Spanish onion, chopped
1 tbsp fresh minced garlic
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 medium tomato, chopped
2 roasted red peppers, chopped
Handful fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese*
Sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Remove stems from mushrooms and set aside. Clean mushroom tops and set upside down on work surface.
Heat oil in a medium skilled. Chop mushrooms stems and add to skillet with zucchini, onion, garlic, and vinegar. Saute for about 5 to 7 minutes, until onion and zucchini start to soften. Add tomato and roasted peppers and heat through, about 2 minutes. Remove mixture from heat and transfer to a bowl. Stir in basil, bread crumbs, and cheese (if using). Season with salt and pepper
Fill mushrooms tops with vegetable mixture and bake for 15 minutes or until mushrooms look tender and cheese is slightly melted. Enjoy!
*I used a sprinkle of Daiya in place of the cheese; however, it was totally unnecessary as these would be great with the cheese omitted, and totally vegan too!
And Tonight’s dinner…
On one of my favorite platters!
Served up on a white corn tortilla and topped with salsa. Yum! Served alongside salad with my standard dressing which is olive oil, honey, lemon juice, and beau monde, but this time I added Chipotle Tabasco and dried cilantro to give it a little Spanish flare.
I actually have another recipe involving mushrooms that I can’t wait to share with you, but it’s something I developed myself so I don’t yet have exact measurements. After I make it again, I’ll totally share it with you guys!
Do you like mushrooms?
Where is your favorite sources to find recipes?
I love finding recipes via other food bloggers, whether ones that bloggers came up with themeselves or have just tried. That way I know at least someone recommends it! Of course, these two awesome recipes came from magazines. My sister actually suggested we make both of these. (Thanks Sara!)
Have a great rest of the week!
