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.
Soaking your mushrooms in balsamic vinegar releases a bit more earthiness, while the sweetness of balsamic balances it out in a fun twist with this mushroom salad recipe. This is a great dish for summer parties or as a snack between meals, with the extra nutrition of the garbanzo beans (fiber, protein, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, manganese, and iron) helping keep you feel full and satisfied.
All the layers of flavor from your favorite Thai restaurant but from the comfort of your own home! This recipe is super versatile and you can choose your own protein. This will also work great with leftover chicken or protein from last night's dinner! Not only that, there's so many awesome options for toppers so each person can really customize their bowl. Look for full fat canned coconut milk for this to yield a real creamy and comforting soup.
