Hey everyone! Here is one of the few recipes that I had tried this month for my month with no meat. I got this recipe for the stuffed mushrooms vegetariantimes.com, vegetarian or not, this site has some awesome recipes.

When I decided to go without meat for a month I knew, I knew that stuffed mushrooms were a must for me. Also I wanted a good soup (recipe coming soon for that one)
