Cauliflower-and-Zucchini-Stuffed Mushrooms


Giant portobello mushroom caps contain a savory vegetable mixture with flavors bolstered by goat cheese and soy “bacon” bits. As a supper or luncheon entrée, this goes well with a light lemon custard for dessert. If you want an appetizer to augment the meal, consider serving a vegetarian mushroom soup garnished with croutons.
