Stuffed Mushrooms with Broccoli Rabe and Farro

Stuffed mushrooms are a staple at cocktail parties.

They’re perfectly bite-sized so you can grab one off a tray and pop it in your mouth politely, without barely pausing a conversation.

Our version of the popular appetizer is particularly nutrient-dense, naturally. These are also vegan, so non meat-eaters won’t have to only stick to the crudite.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

There is a whole lot of goodness stuffed into each of these already nutrient-rich mushroom caps. Think fiber and protein from farro, a tasty ancient grain, and antioxidants from onion, garlic, and tomatoes. The star ingredient may just be the broccoli rabe, though, since the veggie contains micronutrients that fight inflammation, support heart and bone health, and strengthen the immune system. Did we mention these look really pretty and impressive when served at a party?
