Mushrooms are a favorite among the plant-based community. They are great in so many ways such as a meat substitute or a risotto. We always seem to run in to crab stuffed mushrooms when we are out to eat or at a party, but why do mushrooms always have to be stuffed with crab? We came up with these hummus stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer for family dinner.
