“Raw” Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

I came across this interesting recipe today on YouTube. It features Fresh Portabella mushrooms that are stuffed “raw” style.

The secret to these delicious stuffed mushrooms are the pistachios used in the pesto filling. Adding a rich nutty flavour to a fresh pesto makes this meal perfect with a side salad for lunch or dinner.

Guess Who Loves Mushrooms!

I heard through the grapevine that none other than Ms. Katy Perry has a fascination with fresh mushrooms!

Katy says, “I love mushrooms. I could eat a ton of them. I really love truffles but I hardly ever get them. Mushrooms in general though are so healthy and good for you. I can’t get enough.”

She also says they are her favourite food, and are great for staying slim.

Well, since Katy will soon be marrying vegetarian Russell Brand, I have picked out a few vegetarian mushroom recipes that I think both of them would enjoy!
