Stuffed Button Mushrooms with Garlicky Rice Noodles
Yum! Yum! I’m a huge mushrooms fan! I love their texture and how they can easily replace meat in your diet. High in proteins and low in calories, they’re just perfect for anyone who wants to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Portobellos are my favorite because they’re easy to cook and have a really a soft texture.
Easy and diet-friendly, this stuffed button mushrooms recipe can be made by anyone. The stuffed button mushrooms can be served as a main or side dish or even a party appetizer! The rice noodles are also really healthy and super-fast to cook! Just put some boiling water over them and they’ll be ready in no time! The sauce although must have a strong flavor or else they’ll be pretty tasteless.

Directions for stuffed mushrooms:
In a large bowl mix the following ingredients: grated celery root and carrot, diced onion, chopped scallions and dill, coriander, thyme, pepper and salt.
Remove the mushrooms’ stems. You can use them to make a delicious Brown Rice Mushroom Pilaf.
Preheat the oven at 375° F.
Place the mushrooms in an oven tray.
If you use butter – melt it in a small saucepan then pour a little in each mushroom.
If you use oil, just pour a few drops in each mushroom.
Stuff each mushroom with about 1 or 1 1/2 tsp of stuffing.
Pour 1/4 cup of water in the tray. We want the mushrooms to be moist not dry.
Cover the tray with some aluminum foil.
Place it in the oven and let it cook for about 30 minutes.
Directions for the rice noodles:
Boil some water in a saucepan. When reaching boiling point add the rice noodles and remove from heat. Let them stay in the water for a couple of minutes then move them into a large bowl.
In a small bowl add the mashed garlic cloves, sea salt, lemon juice or yoghurt and mix all together.
Pour the sauce over the noodles.
Sprinkle with lovely ruby colored sweet paprika and garnish with parsley.
