[3rd contest]Vegan Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms w/ Tomatoes & Spinach[Lv.Advanced]

Updated: Apr 28, 2021

Chessy stuffed mushrooms are always on the menu but as a vegan, I could never order them. Making plant-based dishes is all about letting the vegetables truly shine. This recipe shows how simply delicious vegetables can be while still being exotic looking. The ingredients in this recipe can be found easily in any grocery store. When creating this dish I realized it was also a one-pan recipe. Who doesn't get excited about quick-cooking and less dishes! While the mushrooms begin to cook down in the balsamic vinegar it instantly gives off a sweet tangy invitation & smells so tasty from the start. This dish is so great for people looking to reduce their meat intake. Since the mushrooms have a meaty texture and the cheese has smoked paprika it really gives an exotic smokey flavor. This is an easy perfect dish that everyone will enjoy!

I am the plant-based chef who influences people to add more wholesome ingredients to their daily meal plans. She has a passion for recipe development & food photography. I have always been a creative person before fully becoming a chef. I was first certified as an aromatherapist. Through creating beauty care products I realized the oils came directly from the plants themselves. I went back to the roots of health which start in the home.
