Do you eat with your eyes or your mouth first?

Stuffed mushrooms with side0002


I love good food, what I love more is to see it well presented in the plate!
I can be compelled to try a recipe just by the look of the food! I respect very much people who can arrange beautifully the food in the plate, I respect even more the people who can take a good picture of it.
Unfortunatley, I am not very good at both,  mostly because I don't have the time to invest in reading and practicing. Of course this is only my fault but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a nicely presented plate.

Eating with your eyes and mouth is so much satisfying than eating only with your mouth!

So, I really, really liked this recipe my favorite friend blogger Tannita presented:

I made some adjustments with the recipe and I made it for my guys at home and it was one of the most delicious things I've eaten!

You will need:
-  for the stuffing
1/4 cup
2  cup fresh spinach
2/3 cup feta cheese
1/2  cup cream cheese
1 cup blue cheese
3 tbsp butter
15-20 large mushrooms. 
4 tbsp parmesan cheese
5 garlic cloves 
4 tbsp bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
- for the topping 
breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese

Preparation
1. Preheat the oven at 400F.
In a large skillet stir fry the spinach and garlic. Then mix with the rest of the stuffing ingredients.
2. Grease a baking pan and palace the mushrooms with the opening up. Sprinkle some salt and pepper and bake for 10 min. 
3. Turn the mushrooms around with the opening down and bake for another 10 min. 
4. Fill the mushrooms with the stuffing, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs on top and bake for another 10-15 min or until golden on top.
Serve warm!
* I served with plain rice, stir fried asparagus with flax seed and dandelion leaves salad. 
Enjoy!
I had a little bit of the stuffing left and I made asparagus and dip plate too:

  1. So true! When I see a well-composed, well-lit photo, it can sometimes make me forget that I don't actually even like the food being photographed. I don't eat mushrooms, for instance, but I wanted to gobble up that first picture so much I had to stop and comment.
