Paleo Nick is stateside again, but he’s still doing the traveling visionary thing. Not to worry! We have a bunch of his awesome recipes all ready to go, so sit back, tune in and be prepared for a serious mushroom craving.

Mushrooms are the name of the game today, or, more specifically, Shrimp Stuffed Shrooms. This recipe is a mix of button and/or cremini mushrooms – caps and stems thank you very much – scallions, celery, Ga Ga Garlic and a whole of lot of shrimp, and it all comes together in under thirty minutes.

You’ll need a food processor for this tasty little dish, which means you don’t have to get too hung up on perfectly diced veggies. Look for “the roll” in the food processor – check the video for clarification on that technical culinary term – and you’ll know you’re doing it right.

From start to finish, Paleo Nick’s Shrimp Stuffed Shrooms are fast and easy, with super radical results. Impress your friends with your casual culinary expertise, or just treat yourself. Either way, Paleo Nick’s showing you that even when it comes to shrooming, you can…

We have carbs coming from the mushrooms and the celery. Starting with the Mushrooms, lets say that about two mushrooms fill a cup, so we have about 7 cups of mushrooms. With 4 cups equaling one block, that means we have about 2 blocks from the mushrooms. Additionally we have the celery that will give us about 1 block from the three stalks for a total of 3 blocks.

Fats: (>1)
Our only fats in this recipe come from the oil the mushrooms are coated in to cook, so it is minimal fats added.
