Quinoa Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
a quick and easy vegetarian recipe anytime of year. This can be oven baked or BBQ for any meatless meal.
Quinoa is a staple on our menu. It took a while but I was finally able to get the family to enjoy quinoa.
I make quinoa with either sweet or savory add-ins – veggies, fruit, or any leftover grilled veggies.
Using the leftover quinoa I had and the portobello mushrooms which were $3.00 on sale this week, I decided to stuff the mushrooms.
I also had a few heirloom tomatoes left over which I chopped along with black and green olives.
Chop, mix, add to the mushrooms, bake, and top with shredded cheese. I had white cheddar cheese which I added. You can use your whatever is available.
I used Kalamata olives and green pimento stuffed olives which added a lot of flavor to the quinoa. The shredded white cheddar cheese added another level of flavor for a delicious Meatless Monday dish.
Serve with a side of spinach and additional chopped tomatoes and olives.
