Sunflower Stuffed Mushrooms on a bed of Kale & Sweet Beets
I was craving two very different things, and decided to marry the two. This dish resulted! It was very good, so I decided to share it. Though I think I may do a few things differently, for the first creation of its kind, I'd have to say it turned out pretty well. I was quite satisfied and had plenty of left overs.
