Featured Image

Portabella mushroom stuffed with herbed chickpeas, veggies, & cashews (Can be put on pizza.  Gets crispy.)
Ingredients
1 can Chickpeas/garbanzo beans or 1.5 cups cooked chickpeas
1/2 cup small chopped carrots
1/4 cup finely chopped red onions
3-4 scallions chopped
1/2 – 3/4 tsp. salt (depends on if the chickpeas are already salted or not)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1+ tsp. Italian herb blend (Thyme, oregano, rosemary, basil, marjoram)
2 Tablespoons tahini
black pepper to taste
1/4 cup raw cashew halves
1/4 cup bread crumbs or ground oats
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil (optional)
5-6 Portabellas, stems removed. Remove gills if you like
salt, pepper, thyme to taste
extra virgin olive oil
1 tomato sliced
Method:
Wash and scrub the bellas. Pat dry. Brush olive oil all over and place with tops down on parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle a little salt, pepper and thyme on the bellas.
Stuffing:
In a bowl, add chickpeas and mash well. Add all the ingredients till black pepper and mix well. Taste and adjust salt and seasoning. When ready to use the stuffing to stuff the portabellas (or to stuff bell peppers or tomatoes or Squash). Add the cashews, breadcrumbs and oil and mix well. Add a few tsps. broth or water if the mixture feels too crumbly.
Note: If you like the veggies well cooked, then sauté the onions in oil, for 4-5 minutes on low-medium heat. Then add carrots, cashews and mashed chickpeas and a few tablespoons of veggie broth, cover and cook for 5-8 minutes. Take off heat, add the rest of the ingredients and mix well and use.
Stuff the seasoned mushrooms with the stuffing. Top with tomato slices. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F for 30-40 minutes, or until the mushrooms are well done and the stuffing is golden.

I have been at Strongside for close to two months. I have never been in a workout environment that feels so supportive and encouraging. I highly recommend Nutriformance for everyone who is looking for a place to belong.

This is the best lifters gym I've ever been to. There is an almost overwhelming amount of equipment on the upper level.

I like the variety of exercises and intensities, but my favorite part is the technology that allows me to hold myself accountable for my effort and performance.

Great local gym. Lots of weights and machines, friendly staff, and not too crowded.

I am so happy I know this place is here now! I booked a massage with Alexis, I had been in need of one desperately from working at home in the wrong chair for the past few months. She was so kind and intuitive and really knew the exact areas to address. I feel like a new person now, one of the best massages I have ever had! I didn't know they offer pilates here as well and the studio is gorgeous. The atmosphere was great and very clean. I will definitely be back soon!

I couldn’t recommend Alexis (massage therapist) enough. She is kind, professional and knowledgeable every time I see her. She makes me feel comfortable and is mindful of aches and spots on my body that might need more or less attention. I feel so relaxed every time I leave and never want the massages to end. She’s great and I highly recommend her!

The reopening protocols that Nutriformance have implemented are identical to those we are currently using in the professional sports world and my confidence is such that I am completely comfortable bringing my 8- year old son in on a weekly basis to continue his training. The awareness of the staff and their sensitivity to our current health situation are of the utmost priority, based on my observations over the last couple of weeks. If you are an athlete looking to gain a competitive edge over your opponents, a young athlete trying to refine your basic athletic qualities or an adult just looking to stay healthy - I would make Nutriformance my first call.
