I'm posting this because I've had a lot of emails this week about my weight loss and people asking what kind of diet foods I eat. The answer is I don't eat diet foods, I eat REAL food...normal food. It's just that I'm eating less of that...and more of the low energy density stuff...like fruit and veggies.
These ingredients fill 4 medium mushrooms.
20g fresh chopped parsley
50g pine nut kernals
25g fresh parmesan cheese shavings
50-100g soft goats cheese (depending on how you like it)
4tsp fresh breadcrumbs
4 field mushrooms or 2 large Portabello mushrooms
1 clove of garlic
|This is the best kind of goats cheese to get as it keeps it's shape well and doesn't run all over the oven tray|
|Dry fry the pine nut kernels|
|Add the fresh parsley, garlic clove, Parmesan cheese and pine nut kernels to a food processor and blend until it looks "crumbly"|
|Once the mushrooms are cooked, divide the pesto between the mushrooms, top with the goats cheese and sprinkle 1tsp of breadcrumbs over each mushroom. Cook in the oven until browned on top and the cheese has melted a little.|
|I serve this with a side salad made from rocket, cucumber, vine ripened cherry tomatoes and grated carrot. Gotta have that grated carrot if you want to see in the dark :)|
Sometimes I save 1tsp of the pesto and the stalks from the mushrooms and fry it (with a spray of olive oil) 2 spring onions, 1tsp of pine nut kernels and a tiny bit of garlic. I then serve this on the side.
