Vegetable & Quinoa Stuffed Portobellos

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!
