One package Porte Bella Mushrooms from Sam's Club (or buy two to 3 smaller ones at your normal grocer)

3 small yellow onions or 3/4 of a big one

2 Stalks celery

3 Roma tomatoes

2 Cloves of minced garlic

2 Tbsp of coconut butter (usually located on the baking isle, top shelf with the coconut milk)

Basil to taste

Oregano to taste

Salt & Pepper to taste

  1. Mince the garlic cloves and chop up the onion & celery stalks. Sauté' in 2 Tbsp. of coconut oil until transparent.
  2. Dice up the Roma tomatoes and fresh Basil(yum!) BTW, Basil is a great herb that looks pretty and grows well in flower beds. So next spring, toss in a few basil leaves and enjoy their yummy flavor all season long!!!
  3. Cook one cup of brown rice. ***Warning: don't forget about your rice or you will end up with crunchy rice and your husband MIGHT think he just broke a tooth or something:)
  4. Gently wash and pull out the stems from the PortaBella Mushrooms. Lay Dry mushrooms flat side down on a non-stick baking pan.
  5. Mix in Rice, Tomatoes, basil, oregano, salt & pepper
  6. Taste this amazing combination of flavors and try to stop yourself from eating all the stuffing before you can use it!
  7. Spoon in heaping amounts of the mixture into the mushrooms
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes or until filling is brown.
