These peppers stuffed with buckwheat and Portobello mushrooms are very easy to make and are delicious, as their ingredients create a combination as soft as tasty.

The peppers, after being baked, contribute their characteristic sweetness, while the Portobello mushrooms add texture and delicacy to the dish and the buckwheat allows us to obtain high quality protein in the most appetizing way, since as it absorbs the flavors very well, the result is a filling where all the accents of the sofrito are appreciated to perfection.

The main ingredients of this dish make it rich in complete proteins (contains all amino acids ), complex carbohydrates , fiber , flavonoids , beta carotene , lycopene , vitamins A , C , E and group B ( B1 , B2 , B3 , B5 or pantothenic acid , B6 and B9 or folic acid ), calcium , phosphorus , iron , magnesium , potassium , selenium and zinc .

If we also sprinkle some cashew parmesan on top, we will not only benefit from the proteins, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, fiber, vitamins and minerals free of cholesterol that this brings us, but also we will be able to enhance the overall flavor of the dish, causing it to become more intense.
