Stuff Some Portobellos with Veggies and Top with Creamy Spinach Bechamel for a Hefty Holiday MealDecember 18, 2014
Christmas parties and holiday reunions are when everyone brings out their best recommendations or gets the chance to show off their skills in the kitchen. It’s not enough to bring staples like chicken and beef; everyone loves a little variety, which is why we’re introducing this decadently cheesy recipe that will get even the youngest of the family to eat vegetables. Portobello mushrooms are one of the best vegetables to work with, not only for their large size but also for their texture, and the fact that it’s just as filling as meat.
In today’s recipe, the addition of NESTLÉ All Purpose Cream completes the silkiness of the béchamel with the spinach and cheese. The béchamel itself only requires a few minutes of your time and the cooking less than ten minutes. If you’ve got relatives coming over for a surprise visit, then you can easily serve a batch of these and still leave them floored by your taste for food.
