  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium bell pepper, finely chopped
  • ONE cup cooked quinoa or another grain of your choice

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Clean the portobello mushrooms by gently wiping the caps with a damp cloth. Remove the stems and set them aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onion becomes translucent.
  4. Add the chopped bell pepper to the skillet and continue sautéing for another 2-3 minutes until the pepper softens.
  5. In a bowl, combine the cooked quinoa, sautéed vegetables, chopped spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, nutritional yeast, dried thyme, dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Mix well to incorporate all the ingredients.
  6. Brush the portobello mushroom caps with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil on both sides. Place them on the prepared baking sheet, gill side up.
  7. Spoon the quinoa and vegetable mixture into each mushroom cap, dividing it equally among them. Press the filling gently to ensure it’s packed in.
  8. Optional: If desired, top the stuffed mushrooms with fresh herbs or vegan cheese.
  9. Bake the stuffed portobello mushrooms in the preheated oven for approximately 20-25 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is heated through.
  10. Remove the mushrooms from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
