Ingredients

  • 24 large mushrooms
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1⁄2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 package (3 oz.) low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1⁄4 cup low-fat sour cream
  • 1 pouch (6 oz.) salmon, drained
  • 1⁄4 cup grated Romano cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Clean mushrooms by brushing with a soft brush. Remove the mushroom stems from the caps. Brush the caps with lemon juice and set aside. Trim the ends from the stems and finely chop the stems.

Add the cream cheese and sour cream to the vegetables and mix well. Add salmon, Romano cheese, and parsley and mix gently. Stuff this mixture into the mushroom caps.
