Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms



Mushrooms,the delicious edible fungi can be savored in so many ways as appetizers, in salads , main dishes or sides.The Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms can be packed up with a variety of vegetables and flavored with different cheeses and herbs,to make a delicious appetizer or as a side.I served it with Penne Pasta in marinara sauce to make a fulfilling 30 minute meal.


Ingredients
10 large button or Crimini mushrooms,stems cut ,finely chop the stems for stuffing
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, finely minced
1 cup of vegetable like carrots,radishes and peppers,finely chopped
2 tablespoon fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro,finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chilly powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
Salt as per taste

Method
preheat oven to 400F.
Wipe the mushrooms with damp cloth and twist off the stems, set the caps aside and finely chop the stems.
Heat oil in a pan,the chopped onions and saute until translucent about 1 minutes.Add the minced garlic,after few seconds add the spices,chopped mushroom stems, and rest of the vegetables and cook until soft , about 8 minutes. Stuff the mixture into the mushroom caps and lay a baking dish lightly greased with oil,drizzle with some low fat cheese if desired and bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly browned. Serve with Pasta or rice and greens.
