Lunar New Year Celebrations
Being away from home for the first time during the Lunar New Year, I found a way to celebrate simply with several of my closest friends. I cooked! (Surprise…)
Year of the Ox Lunar New Year Dinner Party – Menu
Feta-cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
Stir fried Broccoli
Fried Nian Gao
The favorites of the night were the mushrooms and the salmon.
The recipe for the salmon has been posted previously here (Mommy’s Salmon), so I am posting the recipe for the stuffed mushrooms today:
Feta-Stuffed Baby Portabella Mushrooms
- 1 lb baby portabella mushrooms
- 2 tbsp feta cheese, crumbled
- 1 large egg
- 1 scallion, chopped in small pieces
- 1/2 cup crushed croutons
- 2 tbsp shredded pork sung (opt.)
- mozzarella cheese (for topping)
- olive oil
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Brush off the mushrooms to clean them, and then de-stem the baby portabellas (just pull the stems out) and set the stems aside for later.
- Line a baking pan with foil, then drizzle with olive (or other – I use grapeseed) oil.
- Put the caps stemside up (it’ll look like a little bowl) on the baking pan.
- Chop approximately 1/3 of the mushroom stems into small pieces.
- Mix the chopped mushroom stems, feta cheese, egg, scallion, crushed croutons, and pork sung together until well blended.
- Spoon the mixture into the portabella caps.
- Top each portabella with some mozzarella cheese.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until top is slightly browned (I put it under the broiler for the last few minutes).
I hope everyone had a great New Year’s (whether or not you celebrate it). Have an amazing year! ❤
