In the early 1980’s there were only a few NYC vegetarian restaurants around. Whole Wheat and Wild Berry was one of my favorites. Their Stuffed Mushroom appetizer inspired me to adapt their recipe and use wheat germ instead of breadcrumbs. I hope that you enjoy this tasty twist.
In a pinch: If you are out of wheat germ, breadcrumbs will work. Cilantro can be substituted for fresh parsley.
