Vegan Mofo Day 12 Spicy without heat! - Mexican Baked Mushrooms

Today's mofo prompt is "Spicy without chilies".
Mexican food is often made with chilies and yet for those who don't like heat 
Mexican food also had a lot of flavour.

Here I show you how to enjoy some Mexican flavours without adding any chili..... 
and for those of you who do like heat you can always add some chili in!

This is a meal idea without exact quantities stated. The reason I do this is because I always like to encourage people to get experimental in their kitchen and enjoy the cooking process. It a wonderful way to realise that creative meals don't have to be time consuming or difficult to make. Whenever I make meals like this I make a comment to my husband "It's not that hard to make quick, easy yet enjoyable vegan meals! Why do some restaurants find it so difficult!"


                            You'll need:
                                   Large portobello mushrooms
                                   Cooked black beans
                                   Can or tub of diced tomatoes
                                   Mexican spice mix/taco mix or
                                       - paprika, cumin, coriander & oregano

                                   And a batch of my basic cheese sauce

Remove the stems from the mushrooms.
Place them in a microwave proof container with 1cm of water and heat for 2 mins. This helps to soften them and significantly reducing oven cooking time.

In a mixing bowl combine the black beans, tomatoes and spices.
Drain the water from the mushrooms and place them in an oven proof dish.
Fill the mushrooms generously with the black bean/tomato mixture and bake in a preheated 200°C oven for 15-20 minutes until mushrooms have cooked through and the black bean mixture is hot. 

Pour a freshly made batch of cheese sauce over the top of the mushrooms 
and serve with slices of fresh avocado.

I feel like this meal looks a little fancy and if I got served this 
at a restaurant I'd be more than happy! 

What do you reckon!!! Does it look fancy enough to be a restaurant meal?

Question of the day: 
What meals do you make at home that are a little bit fancy?

  8. Chickens are delicate and fragile birds. They have to be handled with care. Try to handle them as little as possible in first period upon their arrival. Also, be sure to do a proper research on chicken breeds. Buy a breed that is either widely spread in your area, or that can survive in your local climate. wholesale mid joint wings
