Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Farro, Butternut Squash, and Kale Recipe on twopeasandtheirpod.com

We love being in the kitchen and cook A LOT, but we still struggle with the daily question, “What should we have for dinner?” I ask Josh every day what he wants for dinner and he usually gives me the dreaded answer, “I don’t care.” Last time I checked, I don’t care isn’t a recipe:) Sometimes, after a little begging, he will come up with an idea. And sometimes he will even take the lead and make dinner. I love those nights:) And sometimes I make whatever I want and hope he will like it!

Last week I got the “I don’t care” answer so I made Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Farro, Butternut Squash, and Kale. I was in the mood to try something new! Josh loves mushrooms and veggies so I figured he would like it and I was right! He ate all of his dinner like a good boy, so he even got dessert:)

Have you tried farro? It is my new favorite grain. It is chewy, hearty, and easy to make. I love using Trader Joe’s 10 Minute Farro. It makes this recipe even easier to make. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you, I am so sorry, but you can use regular farro. It will just take a little longer to cook.

I stuffed big portobello mushrooms with farro, roasted butternut squash, kale, and dried cranberries. Who knew a mushroom could be so pretty?

My current favorite SaladSavors is Fresh! I love the creaminess of the goat cheese, the sweet cranberries, and the crunch from the walnuts. The fun pink packaging is just a bonus:) The Fresh SaladSavors salad was the perfect side to my stuffed portobello mushroom! I loved all of the fall flavors.

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Farro, Butternut Squash and Kale

This healthy recipe makes a great fall meal!

Prep Time
20 minutes
Cook Time
55 minutes
Total Time
1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 small butternut squash peeled, seeds removed, and chopped into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 small shallot minced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups kale finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
  • 1 cup cooked farro
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 4 portobello mushrooms stemmed
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the chopped butternut squash on a large baking sheet and drizzle with one tablespoon of the olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until squash is tender. Remove from oven and set aside.
  2. 2. Heat the remaining one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the shallot and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the kale and fresh sage. Cook until kale is tender, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in the cooked farro, dried cranberries, and 1 1/4 cups of the butternut squash. You might have leftover butternut squash and that is ok. Eat it:)
  3. 3. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Spray the mushroom caps with cooking spray, and sprinkle gill sides with salt and pepper. Arrange mushrooms gill-sides up on prepared baking sheet. Fill each mushroom with the farro filling. Cook the mushrooms for 10-15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft and starting to juice. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
  4. Note-I like to use Trader Joe's 10 Minute Farro for this recipe. You can also use regular farro, it will just take a little longer to cook. You need 1 cup of COOKED farro for the recipe.

  1. This looks and sounds delish! I pinned it to my Healthy Eats board and plan on making it this weekend for a birthday brunch.

  2. The dreaded “I don’t care”…I don’t like that answer at my house 🙂 you pulled together something pretty amazing!! Farro is my new favorite grain too, I would love this!

  3. That looks seriously delicious! I have the same dilemma in my house all the time about “what do you want to eat?” My husband will sometimes say, “it’s too early to think about it” or “whatever”. My son will generally say (because he knows it will irk me to no end about it) “food.” I usually say “what KIND of food?” “Food.” The men in my family are just so helpful… Oy! So I usually make what I feel like making and they have to eat it because they didn’t tell me what they preferred to eat! =P
    I will have to look for that salad fixers. Those look like great time savers for me! =) \

  4. Made this for my vegetarian niece on Thanksgiving, a big hit! Will be making for me very soon too, thanks for another wonderful recipe..

  5. I didn’t have shallots or farro but substituted with onion and lentils ….still amazing and yummy can’t wait to try farro!
