Button Mushrooms stuffed with minced meat with lemon basil and grapes.

This recipe is really amazing and fast to cook, considering the fact that button mushrooms contain 17 different vitamins, the benefits from this dish increase dramatically.

This dish has a long history in my house, it was cooked without cheese and grapes, but I decided to add the sweet twist to it. THe bitterness of cheese and buttin mushrooms combined with sweetness ofgrapes and lemon basil make the combination very rich and the taste pallette wider.

8 big button mushrooms1/2 lbs of minced pork meat

1/4 of white onion peeled and finely chopped

1 pinch of salt

8 leaves of lemon basil


2 pieces of provolone sliced cheese.
