These flavorful vegetarian stuffed mushrooms are the perfect quick appy to make up this holiday season.
1 lb. cremini mushrooms
4 oz cream cheese
¼ whole roasted garlic
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 ½ tsp minced onion flakes
1 tsp umami or garlic powder
½ tsp chili flakes
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
1 ½ tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
Preheat the oven to 400F and prepare two baking trays with parchment paper.
Remove all of the stems from the mushrooms and prepare faced-up on the baking trays.
In a large bowl, add cheeses, roasted garlic, and spices. Use a hand mixer or wooden spoon to combine.
Scoop the mixture and fill the mushroom cavities, this should be approximately 1 tbsp worth.
In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs and 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese.
One-by-one, flip upside-down and press the top of each stuffed mushroom into the bread crumbs.
Arrange back onto the tray, and bake for 20 minutes until golden.
Serve immediately with fresh parsley.
You can make your own bread crumbs using any bread available and pulsing in a blender. Add some of your favourite spices for extra fun.
Replace the parmesan cheese with any of your favourite cheeses! Like cheddar, harvarti, provolone, mozzarella, etc!
You can easily make this gluten friendly by using gluten free bread crumbs!
To make it completely vegan, replace cream cheese and parmesan with your favourite substitute. Add 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast along with these substitutions for more cheesy flavour, and adjust seasonings to taste.
Store in the fridge in a tightly sealed container for 4 – 6 days. Reheat in the oven to serve or enjoy chilling.
