My Recipe Chosen as the Grand Prize Winner!! Stuffed Portobellos w/Hummus Gravy

A few weeks ago Engine 2 (Rip Esselstyn’s baby) announced they would be conducting a recipe contest.  The entries had to include at least one ingredient from the Engine 2 line of foods (available at Whole Foods – try them if you haven’t!), be plant-based (duh), oil-free, low-fat and low-sodium.  I was familiar with the line of foods they offered and immediately got the idea for a recipe to enter into the contest.  It was announced today that my recipe was chosen as the Grand Prize Winner!!  http://engine2diet.com/the-daily-beet/  So fun and exciting!

The folks at E2 will be sharing this recipe with their readers, and I am sharing it now with you.  It’s very easy, and delicious! Enjoy!

 

E2 Stuffed Portobellos w/ Hummus Gravy – This recipe uses Engine 2 frozen Fiesta Blend, and Engine 2 Jalapeño-Cilantro Hummus, currently available at Whole Foods, but any of their varieties (they have 3 of each) would work. – portobello mushrooms, salt and pepper, onion (diced small), garlic (minced), Engine 2 frozen Fiesta Blend, spinach (chopped), nutritional yeast, Engine 2 Jalapeño-Cilantro Hummus, water, salt and pepper to taste, Preheat oven to 400.; Wash mushrooms, gently scoop out gills and stem. Dry upside down while oven heats up. ; Place mushrooms, gill side facing up, on baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake 10 minutes. ; Meanwhile, saute onion over medium heat in dry skillet, about 5 minutes or until opaque, adding small amounts of water to keep from sticking. Add garlic and cook 1 more minute. ; Add E2 Fiesta Blend, spinach and nutritional yeast to onion and garlic; cook 5 minutes. ; When mushrooms have been in the oven 10 minutes, remove and pour off excess liquid from each mushroom. They’ll be hot so use caution, or I’ve found a turkey baster works well at sucking up the liquid without disturbing the fragile/hot mushrooms. ; Divide Fiesta Blend mixture among each mushroom. Bake for 15 minutes. ; In a small bowl, combine Engine 2 hummus and 3 TBS water and stir until smooth. Microwave 20 seconds; stir and warm another 20-25 seconds. ; Pour hummus gravy over each mushroom and serve!! ; –
