Mushrooms: Friend or Foe?

Mushrooms are probably my favourite fungus ever. (Not to mention the only one I'd ever like to eat) They have such a nice filling meaty texture, that they can be such an easy substitute for meat. However, other than being the meat for vegetarians, mushrooms tend to be very underrated. Some people avoid mushrooms thinking they are poisonous or something ridiculous. To the contrary, mushrooms are quite nutritious. I could go on and on about how great mushrooms are, but that won't be any good. Instead, here's a great recipe for mushrooms that's perfect for entertaining. It's a delicious appetizer that is sure to have your guests' mouths watering, and yes, it has mushrooms. So, forget pigs in a blanket, try some stuffed mushrooms, you'll realize what you've been missing.


  • 9 button mushrooms, small, cleaned
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 4 slices of old bread (or toasted bread), cubed
  • olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 100ml tomato sauce
  1. Begin by removing the stalks of the mushroom, so that it is hollow inside the mushroom (see picture). Do not toss the stalks, instead chop them finely, and add with the other chopped vegetables.
  2. In a pot, begin to saute the vegetables and mushroom stalks in some olive oil. Add the bread cubes, mix thoroughly, add tomato sauce, and continue to mix, until the liquid subsides.
  3. Let the stuffing cool completely before handling. Once its cool, stuff the mushroom caps with a heaping tablespoon of stuffing. (Depending on how much you want in it) Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top and drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 10 -15 minutes at 180C, so that the cheese is melted and the stuffing is a bit dry. Bon Appetit!

    There is a bit of bread in it, do you mean non stale/old bread? I just chop up some pieces of toast at times.

    Good stuff! Have you considered working a little bread into the stuffing to "lighten" it?
