Stuffed Mushrooms

Recipe is for 40-50 small Portobello mushrooms

De-stem the mushrooms, wipe clean, and place gills-side down on a baking sheet sprayed with a little canola oil.

Bake at 400 degrees F until liquid leaks out of them (maybe 10-12 mins). Take out and place on paper towels to soak up liquid.

Make the stuffing (see below).

Place mushrooms back onto baking tray, stem side up, and fill in with stuffing.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.

Serve warm if you can!

1/2 cup cooked quinoa
1 whole roasted read pepper diced finely
1/2 medium onion diced finely
1/4 cup fresh basil diced finely
3-4 mushroom caps diced finely
Salt pepper to taste

Add the spices and veggies to the olive oil and sauté for 3-5 minutes until a little soft, but not mushy. Add in the quinoa.

Pesto Filling:
2 cups basil
1/2 cup walnuts
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese
1/4 cup olive oil

Put in food processor until smooth or desired texture.

Fill mushrooms and bake for 10 minutes.
