WIAW: Savory Sensations!

Recipe mania on the blog today! The long weekend allotted me a lot of extra time to experiment in the kitchen and I was totally teasing you all on Instagram these past few days with some of my creations. Well never fear, I don’t intend on keeping these delicious meals to myself! Food is for sharing and enjoying together, after all! So if you end up making one of these dishes I’m sharing, pretend we’re eating together! :) If any one needs a personal chef AND lives in a warm climate, I’M AVAILABLE!

I tend to share a lot of sweet snacks and baked good recipes each week, but today is all about the SAVORY SENSATIONS! Two delicious main dish recipes that are quick, easy, and amazingly delicious! What could be better for a mid week meal?!

Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms

by Healthy Helper



  • 2 portobella mushroom caps, stems removed
  • 2 small carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup white onion, chopped
  • 1/2 of a small red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 of a roma tomato, chopped
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp ground flax or fiber (can be substituted with 2 tbsp of breadcrumbs)
  • 1/2 can of seafood (tuna, salmon, or crab work well!)
  • spices of choice (I used: Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb, basil, red pepper flakes, and oregano!)


Preheat oven to 450. Place veggies in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for a minute and a half. In the same bowl, place a half a can of your chosen seafood, the egg white, nutritional yeast, mustard, spices, and flax/fiber. Mix until evenly combined. Remove stems from your portobella mushrooms caps and place seafood mixture inside. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until mushrooms are fully cooked and seafood mixture is lightly browned.

Meaty Vegan Stuffed Baked Potato with ‘Cheese’ Sauce

by Healthy Helper


Ingredients (1 serving)

  • For potato and filling:
  • 1 baking potato
  • 1/4 cup dry tvp, prepared as directed on package
  • 1/2 cup zucchini, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 of a roma tomato, chopped
  • 3 baby portabello mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 small red pepper, chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
  • 1/4 cup tomato puree
  • spices (I suggest: cumin, red pepper flakes, chili powder, dried basil, etc.)
  • For cheese sauce:
  • 2 tbsp plain or roasted red pepper humus
  • 1 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tbsp water, to thin


Preheat oven to 400. Pierce baked potato with a fork, wrap in tin foil, and place in oven to bake for about 40 minutes or until soft. Meanwhile, saute veggies in a frying pan until cooked through. Add cilantro, cooked TVP, and tomato puree. Add desired spices. Cook until evenly mixed and heated through. Once potato is done, slice open and place TVP-veggie mixture on top. In a small bowl, combine humus, nutritional yeast, and water. Top baked potato with cheese sauce! Serve over a bed of spinach!
