Seafood Stuffed Portabellas with Faux-Tatoes

Yum! Get ready for a fantastic, healthy grilled main dish for two that will knock your socks off!


2 large Portabella Mushrooms
1/2 cup Sauvignon Blanc

1 Green Onion, chopped
3 cloves Garlic, minced
1/2 cup Sauvignon Blanc
2 Seafood Sausages, thawed (check out Trader Joe's brand)
1/2 cup Vegetable Broth
1 Tbsp Soy Sour Cream (or the real deal, if you want all that extra fat)
2 Tbsp Vital Wheat Gluten
2 teaspoons dried Fine Bread Crumbs

Remove stems from Portabellas and discard. Place Portabellas in a pan or on a large plate, gill side up. Pour half of the white wine into each cup. Set aside.

Heat grill.

Saute onions and garlic in white wine. Meanwhile, use a kitchen scissors to cut open the seafood sausage casing. Remove the casing, discard.

Grill Portabellas gill side down until heated but not charred.

When the onions and garlic are soft, crumble seafood sausage into pan. Heat 6-8 minutes or less if shrimp turns pink/orange.

Whisk together vegetable broth, sour cream, wheat gluten and bread crumbs. Stir into seafood mixture until blended and thick. Turn off heat.

Remove Portabellas from grill.

Place half of the seafood mixture in each Portabella. Carefully return mushrooms to grill, stuffed side up, for several minutes until hot and seafood mixture starts to char slightly.

Remove from grill and serve immediately.

I also made "Faux-Tatoes" and steamed Brussels Sprouts.


1 large head of Cauliflower, cut into large florets
2/3 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup Non-Fat Unsweetened Evaporated Milk
Fresh Ground Pepper
Paprika, for garnish

Place cauliflower florets in a large pot and add vegetable broth.

Cover and cook over medium low heat for 25-30 minutes until all pieces are very soft. Turn of heat.

Add evaporate milk and some pepper.

Transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse until creamy. Or use a hand blender to avoid transferring the hot food.

If excess liquid remains, cook it off over low heat with the cover slightly ajar to allow steam to escape. Stir frequently to avoid burning on pan bottom.

Serve hot like mashed potatoes!

Makes four servings.
