Stuffed Mushroom

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ onion, chopped
  • 100 gm bell pepper
  • 20 gm barbecue sauce
  • 50 gm cheese


  • Remove the mushroom stems. Chop the mushroom stems and bell pepper.
  • Heat some oil, saute onion and garlic till translucent. Add chopped bell pepper, chopped mushroom, salt, pepper and cook for a minute. Transfer in a bowl.
  • Add grated cheese to the mushroom mixture and mix well. Stuff the mixture in the mushroom bulbs and keep aside. 
  • In a bowl take the white sauce and mix with barbecue sauce. Add some salt and pepper. Apply this sauce to the mushrooms and seal the opening with little cheese.
  • Bake it at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve hot with pesto.  

Quinoa Pancakes


  • 1 cup quinoa flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¾ cup Greek yoghurt
  • ½ cup almond milk
  • ½ ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • Butter
  • Fruits for garnish
  • Maple syrup


  • Take a large bowl. Add the quinoa flour, baking powder, baking soda and mix well.
  • In a different bowl, add Greek yogurt, almond milk, mashed banana, honey, vanilla extract, eggs and whisk all the ingredients properly.
  • Add quinoa flour mix to the above yogurt mix and whisk. 
  • Take a pan and add a dollop of butter. Using a spoon, pour the pancake mixture on the pan and spread evenly to make fluffy pancakes.
  • Cook for 2 minutes, flip it, and cook the other side as well. You can make 4-5 pancakes and layer them on top of each other. Garnish with fresh fruits and a drizzle of maple syrup.
