Raw Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Rosemary Cashew Cheese

Portobello mushrooms are always great for various raw food recipes. They are an excellent meat replacement in sandwiches, lasagna, soups and more, and if you think these look good – no, they taste even better than they look. Definitely one of our favorites.

Mushrooms are one of the few natural sources of Vitamin D, but the amount they contain depends on their exposure to ultraviolet light. They have more potassium than a banana and 1 mushroom (100 gram) covers 25% of the RDA in selenium. Portobellos are fat-free and very low in calories.

You may serve as is, or you can add some marinated onions, chopped tomato cubes, or parsley for decoration.
