STUFFED PORTOBELLO MUSHROOM

Nutritional yeast is one of the ultimate staples in my kitchen. This is an inactive yeast that is also know as a vegan cheese seasoning. If you follow me, you know I use this all the time.

A quick note on mushrooms: they are actually best when cooked on a low temperature because it breaks down the cell barrier of the mushroom, making them easily digestible and increasing the nutritional value. Very importantly, mushrooms help protect your immune system against colds and other viruses.
