Cheesy Quinoa Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

We all need to eat more veggies…seriously we do! ;o)

Honestly I love food, veggies, meat, I love it all, and I’m so happy to be married to a guy who loves my culinary experiments.

Portobellos are awesome for stuffing, I have many more recipes to come with these lovely fungi.

This is a super easy but a super satisfying meal, that will satisfy not only the vegetarian in your life but also the meat eater as well as the cheese-atarian…that’s a thing right?
