Stuffed Mushrooms

You guys know by now that I love mushrooms, and I’m glad to say that there are a lot of health benefits to eating them! In addition to having anti-inflammatory effects, mushrooms are able to boost your immune and anticancer functions.

These stuffed mushrooms are super easy to make and can be served as an appetizer, paired with rice or quinoa for a main dish, or served over greens to make a delicious salad ❤ Enjoy
