Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I love portobello mushrooms! They are delicious and you can stuff them with just about anything. My favorite thing to do its stuff them with some spices, mozzarella cheese, and spinach and then have them with couscous. Last night I realized too close to dinner that I our spinach had gone bad, so I had to do without. It was still a yummy dinner though.

Serves 2

2 large portobello mushrooms
Olive oil
Dried basil to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or more!)

Prepare the mushrooms first. Pop off the stems and discard, they are not worth saving. dig out all the gills of the mushroom with a spoon. Rinse and pat dry. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brush the top of the mushroom with olive oil and place in a baking dish with the inside of the mushrooms facing up.
Sprinkle some dried basil, salt, and pepper inside the mushroom cap. Then fill mushroom almost to the top of the edges with mozzarella cheese and spinach.
Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 min.

I served mine with couscous and a side salad. It is delicious if you cut up the mushroom and eat it with the couscous. I have read some recipes that just mix rice or couscous right into the mushroom for the stuffing. No matter how you do it, it is delicious!

From one newbie to another, enjoy!
