You know this is going to be a hit right. Juicy bellas topped with herbs and crisp shredded cheesy potato. Add as little or as much olive oil and load as much or as little potato on the bellas, with your preferred herbs and you got your weekend lunch!
Before I could say summer, Fall is already here! Labor day, short days. pfft. Its already getting dark at 7:30. Its a long weekend, so lets not put a damper on things:). It is sunny today. What are your plans for the weekend? There are 4 big events in the Seattle this weekend. Bumbershoot, PAX expo, mariners game, Huskies game. Lets just say, travel in and around main Seattle area is going to be interesting.
So, the only person in this house who eats large bellas is hubbs. I am fine with well cooked smaller mushrooms, but the large ones always get me or dont get me. But since he loves them so much, I decided to make some for him.
These are quick to put together, with a few ingredients. Marinate the mushrooms, top with grated russet, herbs, salt and evoo and bake! done. Serve as is or with a side of potato chips or hashbrowns, mashed potatoes and/or your favorite gravy. As you guessed it right, I ate only potato chips and hash browns for that meal ;).

Another fun read by Dreena on her vegan kids series, tips and tricks for picky eaters. I bet I can apply some tips to myself.
On another note, I am thinking of opening an Etsy store( just a random thought) with assortment of things offered, like
- Jumpstart Indian spices kit(whole spices and blends to make most common indian veggie stir fries and bean curries),
- Ebook with recipes using the jumpstart kit,
- Maybe a small printed book too(hellooo any publishers out there ;)
- maybe some edibles like Indian cookies and crackers(baked versions), since there are already the regular cookie stores out there.
Any other ideas on what you would like to see in the store? Let me know in the comments.:)
Have a fun long weekend!
Marinate the shrooms. Brush with oil, prick the up side with fork and top with salt, spice and herbs. I added some more parsley than are visible. There are a few strategically placed for the picture ;)
You can remove the gills of the mushrooms if you like, hubbs likes them. Oh yes, and we love our chili powder:). Feel free to add spice to taste.
Grate a russet on a paper towel. Add salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and mix. Let sit for 2 minutes, so some of the excess moisture will get absorbed in the towel, then top the bellas. Sprinkle more salt, peppa, nutritonal yeast.
Bake for 30 minutes. Check the center of the mushroom for softness by pricking with a toothpick.
Serve hot as is, or with a side of extra hash browns, potato chips, mashed potatoes n gravy or salad.

Stove top potato chips:
Slice a Russet potato on a paper napkin.
Brush the slices lightly with extra virgin olive oil on one side. I used very little oil this way.
Place the oiled slice on a heated large pan on medium heat. Cook until browned and crisp. Flip to crisp up the other side for a few minutes.
