First of all How to get started on Nutrisystem. Helpful hints please? Many thanks for any answer or 2. 2nd question I got is.. Ive been getting tired of the same rotation of broccoli, asperagus, green beans, so I came up with these stuffed mushrooms while rooting around the grocery store..

6 Bella mushrooms (about 3" wide stems removed).

1 Summer squash shreded (the yellow ones).

Fat Free Feta Cheese (The brand I bought was "President" and it came with medeterainian herbs mixed in).

Small amount of wine and chicken broth mixed with small amount of minced garlic. (not sure of the amounts, but total of maybe an ounce, this adds some flavor and keeps them from drying out)..

Pour a little of the wine-chicken-garlic mixture in each mushroom cap. Add a layer of the Shreded squash, and top off with a sprinkle of the feta cheese..

Place them in a 9x13 dish sprayed with pam and bake at 350 for about 25 minutes..

The only real calories to worry about are is the wine if you put it in, but there is not much, and the FF feta cheese is about 15 calories a mushroom, but it really depends on how much you use. The mushroom and the squash are unlimited I believe...

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably can help you..

Comment #1

If you are worried about the wine or don't have any, you can use low sodium broth and the mushrooms are tasty. I make it with stir fried veggies and a few breadcrumbs..


Comment #2

I use a little wine and a little broth, I like both flavors together...

Comment #3

Try stuffing mushrooms with N.S. Chicken or Tuna Salad. You can eat them cold, or top with a little bread crumbs and fat free/low fat cheese and broil until browned on top...

Comment #4

All these ideas sound great, and I love mushrooms! I am also going to look for the President brand Feta cheese. Thanks!..

Comment #5

I love mushrooms and I will try these ideas. Thanks..

Comment #6

I love the idea to stuff with chicken salad or tuna salad!.

I'd try the others, but I've never found ff feta in Canada. Boo!..

Comment #7

I found the FF feta in a meijers(midwest grocery chain) it was near the specialty cheeses like the gouda and limberger, not in the same spot as all the normal cheeses..

Here is the website, it has a store finder on the site, it might help you find a store that carries it. Although the store I found it at isnt listed when I search..


Comment #8

Alas, no place to put in a postal code - just zip code..

Thanks. I'm going to have to plan a trip south just to load up on groceries!..

I just had about 15 mushroom caps (not very big) filled with the tuna salad, topped with a little panko and lf cheese. YUM! For the first time since starting ns, I feel full!! The side of carrots and a fried egg helps too!.

I'm going to make this often when I have the time!..

Comment #10

Thanks for this tip. I tried it this week and loved it. I was getting tired of the carrots, beans and asperagus too...

Comment #12

Im glad you liked them. I will definately be making these again. Maybe this time with zuchini or brocolli slaw in them...

Comment #13

I just snipped a corner of the tuna salad and squeezed it into the caps! Super easy! And yum!..

This sounds absolutely delicious, yummy! I will have to try them..

I wonder if you couldn't find the feta, if you could use a wedge of Laughing Cow? Does that sound gross, I don't know..


Comment #16

I would imagine it would be less of a grilled, Mediterranean taste, and more of creamy, American taste. And if you use a whole wedge, it might up the cal. count a bit, but I'm just guessing...

Comment #17

I posted a link to the website with the store finder on it earlier in this thread...

Comment #18

Hey thanks for taking the time to do this, I had planned on doing it when I had more time, but wanted to let others enjoy it in the mean time...

Comment #19

Sounds so yummy, on my list for the week. I do know that my Wegmans has the ff Feta. thanks for the recipe..

Comment #20

Well now, yellow squash isn't is season yet (at least I can't find it at the grocery store), but acorn squash is readily available so that's what I'm using. Also, the portabella mushroom caps were huge (4" - 5" dia), so I only used three. Fortunately, one acorn squash was perfect for filling three large bella caps. Then I realized that I used all of the fresh garlic last night so I'm substituting powdered garlic. I didn't measure. I used enough to have it smell a little garlicy..

One thing I didn't see mentioned is how to prepare the squash. Do you shred it raw and add it to the caps? Or, cook it, then mash it up and mix with the other ingredients. I decided to mash it. If I had the summer squash, I probably would have peeled it, then ran it through a shredder..

I guess we'll find out in about 20 minutes...

Comment #21

I think it's best to keep the caps to 2" - 3" because mine were waaaaay too much. I might even go with regular brown mushrooms next time. They were ok though, even with the mashed up Acorn squash. Even my wife liked them too and it's impossible to get her to try anything new. She suggested mixing some feta in with the squash as well as using it as a topping. I agree...
