Stacked Shroom

Yes, I promise, there's a mushroom somewhere in there!!


Last night I made a variation on a simple dinner from the Vegetarian Times Cookbook. The roasted portabella mushroom is stacked with steamed spinach on the bottom, orzo tossed with sauteed zucchini, red bell pepper, the mushroom gills, toasted pumpkin seeds, and parsley, and topped off with roasted grape tomatoes! A light and healthy dinner, plus there was plenty of extra filling leftover for a cold salad. If you haven't made those roasted tomatoes, do it now! I was meaning to save some for a tempeh sandwich, but they were irresistable, so I will have to make some more tonight!!

More later today on a bit of a change up in my food eating routine....

I became a vegetarian in march and well it was not hard for me because I had motivation. Ill have to wait to become a vegan until I am ready to commit.

I love roasted tomatoes. I have some funky plum tomatoes that were given to me, but he skin is so tough you can't chew it. I wonder if roasting them will help? I sure hope so. Off to try. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creation.
