What Goes Into A Spicy Turkey Stuffed Mushrooms?

Portobello Mushrooms

The highlight of this dish is the meaty and umami Portobello Mushrooms. These mushrooms are widely used in countless weight loss recipes for many reasons. It is fat-free and low calorie, while rich in vitamin B2 that converts carbs into energy fuel. It is also inexpensive, versatile, and has great flavor.

Turkey Sausage

Turkey sausage is a great source of protein while having significantly low calorie, low cholesterol, and less saturated fat than other meats. It has a mild taste so you can easily add it to any dish, and it will absorb its flavor well. This is one of my favorite keto-friendly meat to use. You can make your own or get store-bought plain turkey sausage.

Poblano Pepper

Giving a hint of heat to our stuffed mushrooms are poblano peppers. These peppers are remarkably milder than jalapeño and habanero peppers. They are rich in Vitamin A and C, and other minerals and antioxidants. This makes them efficient in boosting immunity and fighting inflammation. It also contains capsaicin that aids in gastrointestinal issues.

Goat Cheese

Goat cheese is one of the healthier cheeses you can add to your diet. It is full of essential nutrients like calcium, copper, and medium-chain fatty acids. These make it beneficial to improve bone health. Moreover, the medium-chain fatty acids and vitamin D in goat cheese aids in weight loss.

How Do You Prepare Portobello Mushrooms?

  • Start by removing the stems of the mushroom. Hold the cap with your less dominant hand while gently tugging and twisting the stem off it with the other.
  • Carefully scoop out the gills from inside the cap of the mushroom with the edge of a small spoon. Do not push the spoon too hard to avoid damaging the mushroom.
  • Lastly, do not wash the mushroom underwater as it absorbs it like a sponge. You’ll end up with a watery cap. To clean it, simply wipe the dirt off with a damp paper towel.
