Stuffed Portobello Mushroom

November 11, 2013

Stuffed portobello mushrooms are so filling they can easily be a healthy meal all on its own. In Jamaica a lot of people don’t eat mushrooms because the thought of eating fungus is far too much to bear. If you share this sentiment then this recipe is certainly not for you as I have also topped the fungus with more fungus in the form of blue cheese. I love all kinds of mushrooms. There are some bright yellow ones growing next to the herbs in the garden that I am tempted to eat but since I am not sure if I will live to tell the tale I have refrained. It is the versatility of the mushroom I admire, they seem to be able to fit into any dish and there is a different kind of mushroom for any occasion. From stuffed mushrooms to mushroom crostinis or shiitake or straw mushrooms in Asian dishes to porcini mushrooms in your Italian dishes there is a mushroom for everyone.
