Their large caps and meaty texture make them the perfect vessel for a wide variety of fillings. This recipe combines the earthiness of mushrooms with the heartiness of quinoa and the creaminess of cheese for a true vegetarian feast.

Featured Ingredient:

  • Portobello Mushrooms: The star of the show! Choose large portobello mushrooms with firm, intact caps.

Delicious & Nutritious Stuffed Portobello Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 cup chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Prep the Portobellos: Clean the portobello mushrooms and carefully remove the stems. Lightly brush the caps with olive oil.
  2. Sauté & Season: Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet and sauté the onion until softened. Add the garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper, and cook for another minute.
  3. Mix the Filling: Stir in the cooked quinoa, spinach, mozzarella, and half of the Parmesan cheese into the onion mixture.
  4. Stuff & Bake: Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Fill the portobello caps with the quinoa mixture. Sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Enjoy! Serve immediately as a delicious and healthy vegetarian main course.

Tips:

  • Protein power: Add cooked chickpeas, lentils, or crumbled tofu to the filling for extra protein.
  • Flavor boost: Sprinkle a pinch of red pepper flakes for a slightly spicy kick.
  • Creative toppings: Get creative with toppings like chopped fresh herbs, a drizzle of balsamic glaze, or roasted pine nuts.

  • This study explored Pholiota nameko (P. nameko) polysaccharide fractions, PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80, purified by gradient concentrations of ethanol (40%, 60%, and 80% (v/v)). The physicochemical properties, functional group composition, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant ability were determined. The results indicate that the polysaccharide contents of PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80 are 45.12%, 78.04%, and 72.22%, respectively, while the β-glucan, protein, and uronic acid contents are 20.20%, 12.20%, and 10.15%, respectively; 11.24%, 14.53%, and 26.94%; and 5.99%, 7.73%, and 3.78%. Furthermore, PNP-60 has better moisture absorption, while PNP-80 has better antioxidant ability and H2O2-injury resistance activity
