Homemade Yogurt / Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

I found great recipes on the blog of Two Peas and Their Pod.  I think it’s the 3rd recipe I do in 2 weeks.  Today I plan on looking at the archives to find more recipes to try.

So on Sunday I made Homemade Yogurt.  I have a old yogurt maker from my mother.  The brand is Yogourmet.  This is exactly what you can see on this photo.  But the one I have is yellow cause it’s so old LOL

This recipe was very easy to do.  I used skim milk and fat-free plain yogurt.  I let it in the yogurt maker for at least 15 hours cause I was sleeping.  It could be more thick but anyway I’m used to not-so-thick yogurt. To show you, I did 2 bowls, one with blueberry jam and one with raspberry jam.  Both jams are ultra-light in calories (only 20 calories per tablespoon).  And I added Splenda to both.  My son ate the raspberry yogurt and said it was really good.

If I want thick yogurt, I can take a coffee filter on a bowl?  How many hours to have thick yogurt?


Then yesterday when I came home after work, I took the time to do the Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.  I ate mine with leftover chicken and spinach topped with italian dressing.

This side dish is very filling, healthy with lots of good vegetable.  I don’t always like spinach but combined with the other ingredients, it’s delicious.  I left out the garlic (was too lazy too chop it finely).  I left out the breadcrumbs, cause I don’t really like breadcrumbs and also it made less calorie.  I used a part skim mozzarella cheese.  I used about 60 g of grated mozzarella.

I roasted diced red bell pepper in a non-stick skillet. After the 10 minutes at 375 F, I put the oven to broil and let the cheese turn golden.  It was so good.

If you like mushrooms, you have to try this recipe.

  1. Glad you enjoyed the recipes. If you want thicker yogurt start with a Greek yogurt…and then you can strain it if you want it even thicker. I like to use Fage or Oikos as my starter.
    I usually make plain yogurt and eat it with fruit and a drizzle of agave nectar.

    I need to make those mushrooms again, they are tasty huh? 🙂

    • I never found Greek yogurt at my supermarket. Maybe if I go to Greek supermarket, but again, I don’t know where I can find one in Montreal. Probably in the West. Which I don’t go very often.

  2. Oh that raspberry yogurt looks gorgeous yum! I think standing it for 2 hours in the fridge should give you a nice thick yogurt. Even cheesecloth works well here. I set yogurt every alternate day & have been doing it for years. You should try & make quark cheese…
