Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms
Ingredients
  • 4 medium-large portabella mushrooms

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion

  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 3 cups chopped fresh spinach

  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic

  • 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, drained

  • 1/2 cup cooked whole-wheat couscous or brown rice

  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • Olive oil nonstick cooking spray

Directions
  1. Preheat over to 450. Trim the stems from the mushrooms and use a spoon to scrape out the gills, creating a shallow depression in each mushroom. Set aside. Coat a large nonstick skillet with non-stick cooking spray and add the onions

  2. and thyme. Place the skillet over medium heat, cover, and cook for several minutes, until the onions are tender. (Add a little water during cooking if the skillet becomes too dry.) Add the spinach and garlic and sauté for a minute or two, until the spinach is wilted. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, couscous, or brown rice, and Parmesan cheese. Place a quarter of the spinach mixture in the depression in each mushroom cap, mounding the top slightly. Spray the tops lightly with the cooking spray. Place the stuffed mushroom on a large baking sheet and bake uncovered at 450 degrees for 15 minutes, until the mushrooms are tender and the topping is lightly browned. Serve hot.

I just leave that part out, but I don't see why quinoia wouldn't work. It will take on the flavor you are cooking so it's a great medium.

I made these tonight for my person and she loved them. I don't like mushroom, but tasted one and it wasn't bad. She on the other hand loved them and said they were better than some she has had while dinning out.

I like the sound of this one. It has much more flavors in it than the usual ones I find. I can't wait for the grill to get fired up!
