Stuffed mushrooms have been a go to holiday appetizer  in my family. Usually it also involves a little bit of ground pork and bread crumbs, which is amazing. This is a little bit of a different take, but I love them! If you don’t have nutritional yeast top them with shredded parmesan or vegan parmesan. I also used pre-sprouted quinoa for them. I love this brand TruRoots for reasonably priced sprouted grains and beans when I don’t feel like doing the process myself. But, if you are feeling inspired here is how you sprout your own quinoa, A Guide to Soaking and Sprouting

If you’re making this for a larger group just double the recipe and use 16 mushrooms. Also, save the stems to toss them in other meals. If it’s for the holidays you’re likely making gravy and you can add them to the gravy.
