We can't wait for the Spring/Summer seasons to hit up the local farmer's market for fresh veggies. These are cheesy and full of fresh vegetables. They do not disappoint! If there is any cheese mixture left, we also stuff yellow, orange, or red peppers and bake them with the mushrooms!

These stuffed portobello mushrooms are fresh and fantastic. Super hearty, they're stuffed with spinach, cheese, and fresh veggies. Red bell peppers add a mild flavor to the cheesy filling while onion gives a little bite. We added the optional bacon and love the saltiness it adds to the filling. Enjoy these portobello mushrooms for lunch or a light dinner. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
