Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I love mushrooms, but I don’t cook mushrooms very often. It’s one of those things that you can’t explain yourself. If I love something so much, how come I don’t eat it more often… Anyway, my dad surprised me the other day with a 4-pack of portobello mushrooms. I opened the fridge one night and there they were, looking pretty and delicious. The following morning my mom asked how we were going to prepare them. I remembered that three years ago I made these stuffed portobello mushrooms and they were so delicious, but this time I let my mom come up with the filling and, of course, she didn’t disappoint.
