stuffed mushrooms
Stuffed mushrooms are always a big win with guests. They are delicious and are a good source of B vitamins, especially niacin and riboflavin. They also have a very high protein content. But because they are low in fat and calories, Western nutritionists mistakenly considered them of no food value (a fresh pound has only about 125 calories). Yet in dried form, mushrooms have almost as much protein as veal and a significant amount of complex carbohydrates. You can use cremini or button mushrooms for this recipe.23 manly, meaty recipes for your parties

Discovered at an ancient tapas bar in Seville, I enjoyed this so much that one small plate was simply not enough. Smoked paprika was once obscure, but can now be found almost everywhere. You can serve this dish as is or over rice, orzo, or couscous. Manchego cheese can be found in most cheese sections. You may use Parmesan if you can't find Manchego.
