Kale- and Chard-Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

Offer a hearty vegetarian option with umami-flavored Portabella mushrooms stuffed with healthy kale and rainbow chard, crunchy pine nuts, and creamy Fontina cheese.


4 large Portobello mushrooms, stems removed
3 Tbsp. olive oil
8 oz. Ready-Set-Serve Washed & Trimmed Kale, chopped
4 oz. rainbow chard, chopped
¼ cup pine nuts, toasted
¼ cup Fontina cheese, grated
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/204 degrees C.
Using one tablespoon of olive oil, brush equal amounts on outside of each mushroom.
Heat remaining three tablespoons of oil in a saute pan. Cook kale and chard until wilted; season with salt and pepper.
Fill each mushroom cap with an equal portion of greens. Top with one tablespoon each pine nuts and cheese. Bake all until cheese is bubbly and mushrooms are tender.
Serve immediately.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
