Fall calls for recipes that make you feel all warm and cozy, with entrees that are hearty and creamy. But if you’d rather not add to your own body’s “stuffing,” turn to this low-carb autumn recipe for cheesy, filled mushrooms.

The stuffed portobello mushroom dinner idea on the Jo Cooks blog takes portobello mushrooms — those oversized and savory fungi — and tops them with onions, garlic, green bell peppers, spinach, tomatoes, goat cheese, mozzarella, breadcrumbs and other seasonings.

Joanna Cismaru, the recipe’s creator, compares these baked mushrooms to low-carb veggie pizza. She suggests pre-baking the mushrooms to keep them from getting soggy, and avoiding washing them, which adds to their moisture level.

One commenter below the recipe on Jo Cooks said that they substituted bacon bits for the breadcrumbs, which would make this recipe more keto-friendly. Another commenter suggested serving the mushrooms on top of a bed of greens drizzled in balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
