DIRECTIONS

For the Mushrooms:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f. Line a sided baking sheet with parchment paper.
Clean your mushrooms, remove the stems, and pat dry. Arrange the mushrooms, on your prepared baking sheet and very lightly brush with olive oil. Then roast until tender, about 10-15 minutes, depending on their size. Once ready, allow cooling for a minute or two.

For the Vegetable Mixture:
Meanwhile, in a sauté pan over medium high heat, add the olive oil then the onions. Sauté for 3 or 4 minutes, then add the garlic. Next, add the eggplant and continue to cook. Then, add the red & green peppers and the chopped tomatoes. Cook for another few minutes. When the onions and the eggplant have become soft, add the chopped parsley, lemon juice and salt & pepper to taste, then sauté for about 5 minutes. Removed the pan from the heat.
Divide your sautéed vegetable mixture among mushroom using spoon. Place your stuffed mushrooms back in the oven for about 10 minutes until it's baked.

Tip: If desired, you may add some cheese on top of the stuffed mushrooms before you put back in the oven. Wait until the cheese is just beginning to get golden on top. Serve warm.
