Vegetable & Quinoa Stuffed Portobellos

Sharing is caring!

Another fantastic low calorie, highly nutritious vegetarian dish.  Just one cup of mushrooms has the potential to release at least 15 different vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. A single Portobello contains more potassium than a banana – 630 mg per serving – which helps maintain normal heart rhythm and muscle and nerve function, as well as a balance between your fluid and minerals. This, in turn, helps control your blood pressure. Buy organic portobellos where possible. Top them with a wonderful chimichurri sauce (recipe included below). These are delicious as leftovers too!
