Ok, so it’s going to be super busy over the next couple of weeks here at home, we are packing up and shipping out back to Australia. After just over a year of living in amazingly beautiful New Zealand, enjoying a break from the real world, it’s time we returned. The sadness is setting in but, we are also looking forward to being near all our long lost family and friends once again and keeping our fingers crossed for a nice little sunny house with a big kitchen and even bigger garden back in OZ. So posts around here may become a little sparse until we get settled again but, I’m sure we will still deliver up a few num nums here and there
And this super quick and easy recipe is just the thing, especially good when you’re short on time, they’ll feed hungry bellies in a flash. Stuffed mush are a favourite of ours and I’m sure a lot of you have your preferred way to serve them; still I couldn’t help share this simple and tasty version we whipped up the other evening. With fat tasty olives, plenty of fresh herbs and light and golden Panko breadcrumbs these stuffed mushrooms are so tasty and it really is such a simple vegetarian recipe everyone will enjoy. Ready in no-time they are perfect as an effortless side dish or starter or serve with toast and salad for a complete light, tasty and healthy meal. Enjoy!
