Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Yield: 4 servings

1/2 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1 1/2 cup sweet potato (or butternut squash), diced
1 cup red pepper, diced
1 cup red cabbage, chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper
1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
zest of 1 lime

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
salt and pepper
4 large portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. Place sweet potato on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Roast for 20 minutes, or until tender. Set aside.
3. In the meantime, add quinoa and water to a medium pot. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until all the water is absorbed. Remove from heat and set aside.
4. In a shallow dish, combine all mushroom ingredients. Stir to coat mushrooms and set aside to marinate.
5. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Add a splash of olive oil. Add red pepper and cabbage, as well as cumin, chill powder, and salt and pepper. Saute for 5 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and set aside.
6. In the same pan, add another splash of olive oil. Add the mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes on each side. When flipping the mushrooms, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of the marinade to the pan to let the mushrooms steam. Remove from heat and place on a plate or tray, face up.
7. To the mixing bowl with the red pepper and cabbage, add the cooked quinoa, roasted sweet potato, black beans, and lime zest. Stir to combine.
8. Divide the filling between the mushrooms. Serve with chimmichurri or fire-roasted tomato salsa.
