I have ‘Much’room for Stuffed mushrooms!

Okay, that was my go on a pun in the title, it is really lame but hope you like it!

It has been a while since I wrote about food, therefore I am back with a healthy recipe! As always right? HAHA! Without further ado, let’s begin!

It started with having brown button mushroom and brown rice in the refrigerator. I did not want any mediocre lunch, therefore I brainstormed a little and decided to do Stuffed Mushrooms! It is not difficult, fairly simple and delicious!

Firstly, the stuffing! You could prepare way ahead of time, no mess, no fuss required! You could pretty much use whatever leftover veggies you have in your fridge! My stuffings were leftover brown rice, yellow bell peppers and onions! I threw in the stalks from the mushroom as well. Oh! I added shredded parmesan cheese for the taste and texture, do omit this if you would like a vegan option. To give it more texture without the cheese, add breadcrumbs. It would add crispiness and crunchiness.  IMG_9202

I then seasoned the stuffings with herbs (I used Italian herbs), olive oil, salt and pepper! Give it a toss with the seasoning and you are pretty much settled with the stuffing. You could do this way ahead of time and store it in the fridge.

I topped the button mushrooms with more cheese! Grease the baking dish with olive oil as well!

Bake the mushrooms at 200degree C for about 20 mins or till the cheese are brown and melting!!! I had my mushrooms with some greens to fill me up!

It is a very easy recipe to do, really no fuss with the ingredients. Use whatever you have at home but do purchase fresh mushrooms! These little guys are meatless and pack full of Vitamin B and fiber! You could treat this as an appetizer or a simple and light lunch!
