Try This Flavorful, Low-Calorie Stuffed Asiago-Basil Mushrooms Recipe

Happy New Year! I am always looking for healthy and delicious recipes to make and share. Mushrooms haven’t been a favorite of mine over the years but this recipe caught my eye. I love Asiago cheese, and there is a light and flavorful dressing. My favorite part about this recipe: They are only 35 calories each!

Here is the award-winning recipe. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 24 baby Portobello mushrooms, stems removed
  • ½ cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • ¾ cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • ½ cup loosely packed basil leaves, stems removed
  • ¼ teaspoon white pepper
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  • Place mushrooms on a greased 15-by-10-by-1-inch baking pan. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes. Drain liquid from mushrooms.
  • Meanwhile, place the mayonnaise, Asiago cheese, basil and pepper in a food processor; cover and process until blended.
  • Fill mushrooms with a heaping teaspoonful of the mayonnaise mixture; top with tomato. Bake 8-10 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Yield: 2 dozen.
