Spinach and Sausage Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms Recipe:
•    6-8 portobello caps (depending on their size)
•    2 T extra virgin olive oil
•    1 pound chicken sausage, stripped of casing
•    1/2 white onion, minced
•    1 clove garlic, minced
•    1/2 C ground almonds or almond meal
•    16 oz baby spinach
•    salt and pepper to taste
•    1 egg
•    crushed red pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and lightly brush a baking sheet with extra virgin olive oil.

Sauté the spinach in 1 T olive oil, and drain in a colander while you prepare the other ingredients.

Next, sauté the onion, garlic, a bit of salt and pepper, and crushed red pepper until fragrant and translucent.  Add the almond meal to this mixture – it creates a creamy, almost decadent “sauce” that really thickens up and adds SO much to this dish!!

Let all the veggies cool a bit, then mix with the sausage, egg, and salt and pepper.

To assemble, lightly season the bello caps with salt and pepper, and fill each with the stuffing.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until browned, cooked through, and so fragrant you’ll drool.

Serve immediately. Enjoy!
