These delicious stuffed mushrooms make a quick and easy side dish, main dish for vegetarians or even a healthy snack.
I found these gorgeous oversized mushrooms at the supermarket and decided they would be perfect as stuffed mushrooms. Such an easy, yet elegant dish.
I love mushrooms because there are so many varieties and they are rich in fiber and protein. Mushrooms also contain vitamins, nutrients and powerful antioxidants like selenium, which is very important for the immune system. Selenium can also have an effect on fighting inflammation.
