A simple marinade made with garlic, balsamic, and Dijon lend a delicious flavor to these Portobello caps. They are then stuffed with a nutty and vibrant spinach kale pesto and topped with pine nuts. These are great as a light dinner with a big salad or served on some of my celeriac mash, cauliflower, or broccoli rice as a starter.

For the Mushrooms:

  • 4 Portobello mushrooms, cleaned
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts, for topping


To Make the Mushrooms:
