Nawww, spoilt!! ☺ ♥

All this summer-of-love action made me hungry for champagne bubbles and those Cheesy Broccoli Stuffed Mushrooms we munched in November, but this steamy weather demanded something lighter.  Something tangy.  Something that would also use up the last of my tofu feta.


Presenting – Lemon, Basil & Tofu Feta Stuffed Mushrooms!

Serves 2 lovebugs:
