- 12 large white mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
- 1/2 cup dairy-free bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup dairy-free grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- Cooking spray (for greasing)
1. Prepare the Mushrooms:
- Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C).
- Carefully remove the stems from the mushrooms, creating a hollow space in each cap. Set the caps aside.
2. Make the Filling:
- Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Sauté until the onion becomes translucent and fragrant, which should take about 2-3 minutes.
- Remove the pan from heat and transfer the sautéed onion and garlic to a mixing bowl.
- To the bowl, add the dairy-free bread crumbs, dairy-free grated Parmesan cheese (if using), fresh parsley, and a pinch of salt and black pepper. Mix everything together until you have a well-combined stuffing mixture.
3. Stuff the Mushrooms:
- Using a spoon or your fingers, stuff each mushroom cap with the prepared filling. Press the filling down gently to ensure it’s packed inside.
- Place the stuffed mushrooms on a greased baking sheet or in a baking dish. Make sure they are arranged in a single layer.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is golden brown.
- Once done, remove the stuffed mushrooms from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes.
- Arrange them on a serving platter and garnish with additional fresh parsley if desired.
