Stuffed Portobellini Salad

Those who know me well know how much I am in love with Portobello mushrooms! I just love this fungi! It is so meaty and filling and versatile and forgiving, one can never go wrong working with it. These days I have realized that these mushrooms can be served as a base instead of pizza and tortillas or pretty much anything that needs breads, aka carbs! So this is the best way to eat good and healthy if you are eating gluten free or low carb foods. Stuffing and topping of these mushrooms just drives me crazy because the possibilities are endless. My brain overflows with ideas once I start thinking about stuffing these babies. I’ve got a few other recipes in mind as I am writing this so stay tuned!

Goat Cheese Stuffed Portbellini Mushrooms with Spring Greens
6 Portobellini(baby Portobello) mushrooms

How to:
