Greek Stuffed Mushrooms with Feta
Stuffed anything is just, well, comfort food yummy! And yummy thoughts often find me sitting at my desk daydreaming about food. This week's Lean and Green, Low Carb recipe I fear is no exception. :)
Staring out at the changing leaves, I found myself longing for blue skies, white sand and, well, because I'm all about the food my thoughts immediately wandered back to Santorini, Greece.
Reminiscing about the fresh food and intense flavors, I had to shake myself out of it or we'd have never eaten dinner!
Although the days are changing here at home, you can have the hearty, warm and rich flavors of Greece right at your fingertips with this easy meal. Ground beef (or chicken or even lamb!) is combined with the flavors of garlic, basil, mint and oregano resulting in mouthwatering magic!
Low in calories and high in taste, this is one to make in bunches for sure. And, how's this? You can even stuff the mushrooms and then freeze them and bake them at a later date! Perfect when you need something fast for yourself or your family.
This dish makes a great Optavia Recipe, a Weight Watchers Recipe and also a keto recipe. Happy cooking & enjoy!
