Nothing beats a solid stuffed portobello. Once you find a good recipe for this, you hold onto it, earmark it, and make it every time that earthy craving for mushrooms comes along, or if they are on sale! And if you want to get all scientific on why portobellos? Why now? Here's some of their amazing nutritional benefits: they are chock full of three important B-complex vitamins: riboflavin for your red blood cells, niacin to keep your skin all silky smooth and keep your GI tract on track, and pantothenic acid. Panothenic acid helps your body with the release of energy from the macros in your food (protein, carbs, and fats). You can also play with this recipe based on what you are going for with what kind of cheese you want, go cheddar and add some salsa on top for a Mexican vibe, or add basil to the meat mixture and use mozarella to go more Italian. Lots of options here.
