Cheddar Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


4 ounces softened cream cheese

1 cup shredded cheddar

2 diced green peppers  

½ cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes

3 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro

1 tablespoon olive oil

4 or 5 medium-sized Portobello caps


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Carefully cut off the stem of the mushrooms and scoop out the insides if required. Don’t scoop out around the edges to avoid breaking the mushroom.
  3. Arrange the Portobello mushroom caps on a greased baking pan.
  4. In a small mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, cheddar, peppers, tomatoes, and cilantro. Spoon the filling into the Portobello caps, filling each cap.
  5. Drizzle the stuffed mushrooms with olive oil. Bake, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes in the oven. 

Cranberry Roasted Brussels Sprouts


2 pounds Brussel sprouts

¼ cup olive oil

Salt & pepper

6 tablespoons butter

1 cup cranberries

½ cup sugar (Healthier Alternative: Natural or Artificial Sweetener, such as Splenda® or Honey) 


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking pan with foil and spread the Brussels sprouts over the pan.
  2. Drizzle the sprouts with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to evenly coat.
  3. Roast in the oven 15 to 20 minutes until tender and browned.
  4. After the Brussels sprouts are cooked, melt butter in a saucepan. Heat the butter until golden, about 5 to 7 minutes. Stir intermittently.
  5. Simultaneously combine the sugar and cranberries in a different saucepan. Cook until the sugar melts but the cranberries are still intact.
  6. When butter is fully melted drizzle it over the Brussels sprouts. Add the cooked cranberries and toss to combine.

When these dishes are finished split them evenly between microwave-safe containers and store in the fridge until ready to eat. Enjoy this delicious holiday-themed meal prep for lunch at work or as an easy dinner!
