Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
20 Medium mushroom caps
3 tablespoons Minced onion
1/2 cup Butter or margarine, divided
1/3 cup Dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup Natural American pistachios, chopped
2 tablespoons Chopped parsley
1/4 teaspoon Marjoram, crushed
1/4 teaspoon Salt
Remove stems from mushroom caps; finely chop stems. Sauté stems and onion in 1/4 cup butter until tender. Add bread crumbs, pistachios, parsley, marjoram and salt. Mix well. Spoon stuffing into mushroom caps. Place on baking sheet; drizzle with remaining melted butter. Bake at 350 degree F., 5 minutes or until hot.
Tip: American Pistachio Stuffed Mushrooms can be broiled instead of baked. Broil 6 inches from heat for 5 minutes until browned and thoroughly heated.
