Meatless Monday...Eggplant-stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

Stuffed portabella mushrooms are one of my favorite vegetarian meals. You can get really creative with them and they always come out great!

I stuffed these with eggplant, blue cheese, onions, sun-dried tomatoes, and basil and they were to die for. I served it with wilted spinach and dill and garlic roasted red potatoes. Forget meat and go vegetarian with this meal!

Mushrooms may provide support for your immune system due to their phytonutrient content. They are also a great source of selenium and several B vitamins. Add them to your veggie burgers, salads, and sandwiches to boost the nutrition value.
