Tips and Tricks
Prepping your mushrooms: Start by gently cleaning your mushrooms with a damp paper towel. You don’t want to soak them because they will absorb too much water and become soggy. Next, use a spoon or your fingers to carefully remove the stem from the mushroom cap. Be careful not to break the cap. If the stem is tough to remove, you can use a paring knife to gently cut it away.
Stuffing your mushrooms: Once your mushrooms are prepped, it’s time to stuff them! For this recipe, we’re using a healthy mixture of chopped kale, quinoa, and red pepper. Feel free to mix and match your favorite ingredients. Just make sure the stuffing is moist but not wet so the mushrooms don’t become soggy.
Baking your stuffed mushrooms: Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, place the stuffed mushrooms on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the mushroom caps are cooked through and the stuffing is browned and slightly crispy.
Enjoy! These healthy stuffed mushrooms make a great appetizer or side dish. Serve them as is or with a dipping sauce of your choice.
