Little Diva's Stuffed Portobella Mushroom Caps
I made these with what I had on-hand. I can tweek this countless ways. This was purty darn tasty, though, and filling! I served it with a side of Isreali couscous I prepared in chicken broth for flavor and richness. You can use less bacon, or add shredded chicken, or black beans or Great Northern beans if you want. I just used what I needed to use up in the fridge, so that is what I went with.
It may seem odd, but to cut down on over-all cooking times of the veggies I always pop them in the microwave for about two minutes to "steam" them, and then I add them to the skillet. Nothing is ever mushy, always the perfect balance of cooked but crisp.
When I make this next time I'll save calories by using less bacon and cheese. It can easily be a less than 300 calorie offering. Again, I used up food I had, and these were the proportions of it all. Still. not to shabby! It was a bit high for me, but not at all fo rmy hubby.Submitted by: LITTLE_DIVA
