Jerk Baby Bella Mushrooms with Couscous

I used to love jerk chicken, salmon, and red snapper. I still long for the taste sometimes.

For those who love the spice but don’t want the meat, fish, or want to take a break from it, give this low-calorie, high-fiber dish a shot.

There is one caveat to this recipe, though. You’ll have to let the mushrooms marinate overnight. So prep a day ahead. I promise it’s worth the wait!


  • Trader Joe’s Sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms
  • Half of Onion
  • Half of Yellow Pepper
