Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Portobello Mushroom


Stuffed Portobello mushrooms make a wonderful side dish for fish, meat or pasta dishes. Just like any stuffed vegetable dish, Portobellos can be stuffed many different ways.

My favorite is Portobellos stuffed with a creamy parmesan risotto. It has a very earthy flavor which I enjoy with lamb or beef. You might be able to serve this dish as a simple dinner for two. I just happen to like a lot of food around me so I always make it as a side.

This Stuffed Portobello recipe would also be great for lunch.
