Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
My inspiration for this dish came from the Tomatoes Stuffed with Rice recipe by Giada DE Laurentiis on the Food Network's Everyday Italian. I actually made and posted about, the Tomatoes Stuffed with Rice on Easter and they were awesome.
I figured why not try it with portobello mushrooms. I used the same rice stuffing and just replaced the tomato shell with the portobello. I did still use tomatoes in the rice mixture though.
Also, to make it quick and easy, I used Uncle Ben's Ready Rice (Brown Rice). It takes 90 seconds to cook and the brown rice is much more nutritious than plain white rice. For you sceptics out there, you wouldn't even know it was brown rice because there are so many fresh herbs, cheese and seasonings that give it such a great flavor.
It worked out quite well. Fresh herbs are a must here. Give it a try!
Do you have a recipe that can be changed easily depending on what you have in the fridge?
