Before we dive straight into this delish Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe, can we talk just a little bit about NEC? You might have noticed that last Sunday we launched a brand new design for the website. Can I get a big hooray?!

We’ve been working hard on this one Solal and I. It might not seem like much but we’ve designed and rebuilt everything from scratch so yeah…it was a lot of work and I’m so happy to finally see it live! Can’t remember what it looked like before? Here you go:

Previous design NEC

Much better now, huh? I wanted something clean and very user-friendly so that you could easily browse NEC and find what you’re looking for in a snap. I’m not going to list all the new features because you probably don’t really care and really just came here for my Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe. And we’ll get there!

My most favorite part of all is the brand new visual recipe index. Have you checked it yet? From this page, you can search for a recipe using keywords like ingredients or title in case you already know what you’re looking for; you can also browse by categories and even by ingredients!

My goal was really to make things easier for you guys, and I hope it will. You can check the visual recipe index here. Another cool feature is the sharing bar that allows you to pin for instance this Stuffed Portobello Mushroom recipe on Pinterest in about 3 seconds. Perfect for the Pinterest junkie in you.

We’ve also added at the bottom of each article a “next recipe” and “previous recipe” button so you can easily read another post without having to go back to the homepage.

Oh and of course, the site is fully responsive, which means that you can read it comfortably from any device: computer, smartphone, tablet…you name it!

We are still fixing a few bugs here and there so don’t hesitate to reach out if you spot one! I see Not Enough Cinnamon as a constant work in progress. We’ll keep tweaking the interface and adding new features with one goal in mind: making NEC a useful and pleasant experience for you.

If you have feedback, something you like or don’t like about the website, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below or email me ([email protected]). I’d be happy to hear from you!

Now…to this Sausage and Rice Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe! 

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms - @NECinnamon

I’ve been on a sausage kick lately and I want to put them everywhere. They are glorious with pasta and didn’t disappoint in this stuffed portobello mushrooms recipe either.

Ever since I’ve made my stuffed portobello mushrooms with ricotta, pesto and grilled haloumi recipe about 6 months ago, I knew I would have to try other stuffed baked mushroom recipes ’cause they are simply delicious and it’s a nice change to the stuffed tomatoes or stuffed eggplant I’m more used to.

The stuffing for these portobello mushrooms is so good you’ll want to eat all of it before you get a chance to fill one single mushroom. It’s such a great recipe for using up leftover rice because let’s face it, we all end up with plain rice and pasta in our fridges all.the.time. Or am I the only one?

Also, should you have some leftover portobello mushroom filling, you can serve it as fried rice the next day with a few veggies mixed in and a green salad on the side. Enjoy!

  1. This recipe sounds wonderful! And I like the new site design except for one thing: that bar for Pinterest that decreases the amount of the page that is visible. This is of concern when I want to do a screen shot of the page. I admire your redoing of the site. I need to do my blog over, from scratch, because I had to get new software. Not looking forward to that, and am definitely procrastinating. The blog is huge… It would be nice to be able to do that seamlessly, the way you did. 🙂

    1. Thanks for your feedback Susan! Are you usually visiting my blog via a computer or a tablet/smartphone?
      What’s your blog’s URL? I’d love to check it out! Redoing a site from scratch in a lot of work and would not have been possible at all if my boyfriend wasn’t a developer (he’s the one who coded the whole website). Buying a nice theme would probably be your best option 🙂

      1. Hi Marie,
        I visit your site via my MacBook Pro laptop.

        My blog url is

        The web site covers our travels, the park we volunteer at, and our craft beer adventures.

        I have yet to even look at the software I got to see what their themes are. If I don’t really like anything they have, I will definitely take your advice about buying a nice theme. I have a step-son who is very good with this kind of thing, but he lives an 8-hour drive away from us and is very busy, so I don’t often get to pick his brain. This stuff is way more complicated than I’ll ever really understand. I’m glad that you have Solal to do that stuff for you – one of the many ways he is a blessing. 🙂

        1. I’ve just checked your blog Susan (finally!) and I love it! It makes me want to stop everything right now and travel the world. I wish!!
          Are you going to move on WordPress? I think it’s definitely the best blog platform out there. Let me know if I can help you, I would be happy to!

  2. Sorry I was looking at two of your recipes at the a ame time. I meant to comment on the mushrooms and caramelized onion with prosciutto on the puff pastry rounds!

          1. I can just use a basic unsweetened pie crust cut into rounds…… Us folks with food intolerances have to be Adaptive! Your recipes help!
