Stuffed Portobello Mushroom Recipe for Dinner Tonight
Happy What’s for Dinner? Wednesday! This week I’m happy to share a vegetarian recipe that doesn’t include tofu (if you haven’t been by the blog in a while, you might have missed my tofu cooking spree. Check out some of my favorites on my Pinterest board here>>). Instead of cooking up the vegan treat, I’m having you check out a Stuffed Portobello Mushroom recipe I’ve modified from one I found over on Eating Well.
Even though I love a good portobello mushroom burger, I’m more of a fan of beef hamburgers (yes, in spite of my tofu obsession, I’m still a meat eater!). So this recipe was a nice way to put the spotlight on a fun fungi without the need to choose come BBQ day.
Want to try out this quick vegetarian entree for yourself?
Here’s what you’ll need to serve it to four:
4 large portobello mushrooms
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 c skim ricotta cheese
1 c chopped spinach
1/2 c shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
2 tbsp chopped kalamata olives
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
3/4 c roasted red pepper marinara sauce
Here’s how to put it all together:
Step One: Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place your portobello mushrooms on top. Season them with your salt and pepper. Once your oven is ready, pop those portobellos in so they can roast for 25 minutes.
Step Two: Prep your stuffing. Mix together the ricotta cheese, spinach, olives, Italian seasoning, and 1/4 cup of your Parmesan cheese.
Step Three: Stuff your shrooms. Once your mushrooms are ready, take them out of the oven and reduce the heat to 350 degrees. “Stuff” them by layering on 1 tbsp of marinara and then 1/4 of the mix you made in step two. Finally, cover each mushroom with a 1/4 of the remaining marinara. Pop those portobellos back in the oven to bake for 10 mins.
Step Four: Finishing touches. Take out your mushrooms and top each one with 1/4 of your remaining 1/4 cup of Parm. Presto! You are ready to enjoy your delicious veggie entree.
