Arame Stuffed Mushrooms

Happy Friday! It’s Grains and Greens Giveaway Day Four! If you’re visiting the site for the first time, welcome! All the contest details are at the end of the post- and at the end of each qualifying post over the past week, starting on December 11th. Enjoy and Good luck.

Whoa. I can’t believe that I’ve been writing here for over a year and have not featured arame yet!! Craziness! Hubs and I LOVE arame, and eat it often. Like, a few times a week kind of often. If you haven’t cooked with it before, don’t be scared. Yes. It’s a seaweed. Think of it as a sea vegetable, and somehow it makes it easier to deal with- that and the whole being delicious part. Arame is wonderfully tasty and full of calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamin A- the good stuff.

Haha. the good stuff- no pun intended there!

I have made this recipe 3 times in the past two weeks. The second time for dinner guests- and so I made a few extra in hopes there would be leftovers. No such luck. They are that good. Not only would they pair nicely as part of a larger meal with yesterday’s noodles, these delectable bites are also perfection when served as appetizers. Plus, although the stuffed mushrooms look super fancy, the most time consuming part is removing the stems. Do that while the arame is cooking and you’re set. The rest is a breeze. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Deliciousness awaits.

See you tomorrow for dessert!! *update* eek. It’s the 15th! Hubs and I are heading out to finish Christmas shopping, but we’ll be back with a delicious dessert on Monday the 17th. Tuesday the 18th (epic busy weekend!) It may or may not be definitely is a delicious vegan cheesecake… You still have until the 19th to leave a comment on each of the Giveaway posts for your chance to win!! Happy Weekend and see you Monday.

I’m afraid of mushrooms! However, they worked so well in your Shiitake Mushroom Gravy I’ll try to get over it. I see a new reason to move through the fear.

Never thought of stuffing with arame, always used the traditional breadcrumbs. This sounds like it will satisfy all tastes. My husband will be the tester, so here goes. Thanks for this great recipe.
