These Lamb Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms topped with Feta Cheese are absolutely delicious and would be perfect to serve for a special dinner for two and impressive to serve to company.
The recipe suffers nothing from being gluten free. You can feel confident serving it to both your gluten and non-gluten sensitive family and guests.
As with most recipes, I did some searching online, found a couple of recipes that I thought sounded good and then pulled from those; substituting with what I had on hand and to work around my gluten sensitivity. (I can occasionally eat recipes that have gluten in them but I do try to limit that. In dishes where I can leave it out, I do.)
For instance, the recipes I found all called for adding bread crumbs as a filler. I substituted almond flour (aka finely ground almonds.)
I’ve also recently started adding a “secret” ingredient to all ground meat recipes where I’m making patties, meatballs or meat stuffing. Nutritional yeast is packed full of goodness and adds a wonderful boost of flavor.
It’s completely optional and the recipe will still be delicious without it. But I’d encourage you to give it a try and you’ll taste the difference it makes.
