Another from The Biggest Loser Cookbook. It says that 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne is too much for most people, but a pinch is too little. I say take it slow :0

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a small baking dish with non-stick spray.
  2. Take the stems out of the mushrooms by twisting them until they come loose. Mince the stems and place them in a small dish.

  4. Place the caps in the dish stem side up. Spoon the mixture into the caps.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes or until tender.
  6. Let cool slightly before serving.

I made this recipe in the ratios written except that I used dried parsley. I think it was missing something...garlic perhaps? The Biggest Loser Cookbook mentions using a low fat feta but I don't think that's the issue. I rubbed the parsley together to release the flavors before adding to the recipe but I still think it was missing something. I baked the mushrooms in my toaster oven on a foil lined pan for EASY clean-up. Will definitely make again with garlic perhaps?
