Baked Portabella Mushroom Caps with Couscous Stuffing

Apr 03, 2013

Here’s a quick, healthy, easy-to-make vegetarian dinner for four that’s a “go-to” when I’m in a rush!  I like to have the ingredients pre-chopped and in separate containers to cut down on prep time even more.  Adding diced tofu or a can of black beans to the couscous mixture gives the meal an added boost of protein and keeps me full.  Serve with salad!
