We’re now entering the best time of year for entertaining. From now through New Year’s Day, there will be so many fun and festive occasions to get together with friends and family. One of the true highlights of any holiday party, of course, is the food—specifically the appetizers (who doesn’t love food that’s served as soon as you arrive?). Sometimes the best food is the food you don’t have to wait for. And while chips and dips and cheese platters are all wonderful, it’s really the hot apps that I gravitate to—for one, stuffed mushrooms.
These babies are warm, rich, and savory, with parsley, scallions, whole grain bread crumbs, fresh lemon, and Parmesan cheese. For creaminess (and to bind the bread crumb mixture), I stir in a little mayo, nonfat Greek yogurt, Dijon mustard, and a few splashes of soy sauce.
Not only do they taste delicious, they’re also fairly easy to prepare.
I made them with Simply Surimi because it tastes great and is so easy to cook with (the surimi is fully cooked and ready to go), but the added perk is that it’s pretty darn healthy, too—free of GMOs, added phosphates, and artificial colors or flavors. Made with wild Alaskan pollock, it’s gluten-free, fat-free, and certified heart healthy by the American Heart Association. To boot, it’s also certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council.
