These Winter Salad Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms are a healthy, simple, tasty side dish!

Winter is the season  when our bodies crave comfort, warmth and fullness to balance the chilly weather outside. At the same time, we’re often trying to recover from the onslaught of heavy holiday meals. I like to eat a lot of salads in the new year but I know Jeff doesn’t consider them to be very substantial. I have a little trick up sleeve that I use to make my favorite salads more filling – portobello mushrooms! 

These Winter Salad Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms are a healthy, simple, tasty side dish!

This winter salad has some of my favorite ingredients: olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, butternut squash, farro, shallots, dried cranberries, pine nuts, and arugula. You’re going to love it!

    Oh goodness gracious… that stuffing is incredible!! We love Portobellos, and because I cook a lot of vegetarian meals, I use them in place of meat whenever I can.
