This is more of a method than a recipe. But I wanted to share the idea of it. I decided to make some stuffed mushrooms to go with our raw pizza fillings. While the flax based bread is good, it is also high in calories. That is great for the hubby, but I don’t want any unnecessary calories. To get the taste of the pizza without the flax bread I made stuffed mushrooms. This was very easy and quick to do.
Remove the stems from a pound of fresh crimini mushrooms to create a cavity to hold the filling. Rinse the mushrooms well with water to remove the dirt. While the mushrooms were still damp toss them with sea salt. Place them in the dehydrator until they were a little dried out and warm (about an hour). Now add a little sun-dried tomato marinara into the cap and top it with sun-dried tomato nut cheeze. I finished the dish with some dried oregano, and black pepper. They were quite nice. The hubby preferred the pizza and I preferred the mushrooms. Good thing is it easy to make both at the same time.
Crimini mushrooms make a small mouth-sized morsel that you can pop into your mouth. They would make a nice party appetizer. I have leftovers of all the components so I will be making some of these tomorrow with my lunch. It is surprising how much these taste like baked mushrooms.
For now I need to do some more work on the Healthy Cooking Challenge so we can announce a winner. So that you can be thinking of your next recipe submission the topic will be vegan fast food. We haven’t finalized how we are going to define this. But suffice it to say both low fat and healthy are important. If anyone has a suggestion for how to define fast food please feel free to share. I am thinking of fast in terms of total active cooking time (which would allow low involvement meals like soups to be included).
Additionally, before you all think I have gone raw, that is not the case. I am simply trying to add more raw food to our diet. We will also continue to eat plenty of cooked food. I am going to make some type of hot soup tonight for dinner.How many of you are interested in seeing raw food recipes?
