Throughout my elimination diet, people have consistently asked “if you’ve cut out gluten, processed sugar and dairy – what the heck are you eating!?” My response has been that I’ve never eaten better. Seriously…so much delicious food! Not only do I feel better having eliminated certain foods, I am also a lot more creative in the kitchen. I’ve discovered so many ways to use plant-based ingredients to make incredibly delicious food such as these creamy, flavourful stuffed mushrooms! They are seriously the perfect appetizer. Mushrooms are filled with a cashew cream loaded with fresh flavours such as lemon, parsley and chives. Then, the mushrooms are baked until the filling is bubbly hot. Let me tell you – these little guys are incredibly addictive! They are rich, yet filled with bright flavours. They bake up nicely with the mushroom developing a light crust. They are an ideal finger food perfect for parties, BBQs, or even as a tasty side dish.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Happy Memorial Day weekend to my American readers :) This weekend, I am hoping to do a lot of cooking and baking. Lots of recipes up my sleeve! Since the weather is FINALLY nice, I also hope to go for a few long walks, a bike ride and maybe some sangria out on a patio!
