Mushrooms stuffed with vegetables and cream

Mushrooms stuffed with spring onions, potatoes and creamYou can stuff mushrooms with many different ingredients like: cheese, ham, spinach, bread-herb filling and many more. These tasty stuffed mushrooms are always our favorite party appetizer, and here why: they are completely vegetarian (thus suitable for all diets), easy to prepare (so you can concentrate on other kitchen tasks) and because stuffed mushroom tend to be offered by good restaurants (and not in the ready-made meals section of your local supermarket) your party menu will look a bit more special.

We actually decided to try this humble hors d’oeuvre because of a family member, who is a vegetarian, and to be frank we didn’t expect much from it. But, as our experience showed, everybody likes them so much that these stuffed mushrooms are among the first things to finish at any party.

In few words: simple, effortless and totally addictive.Mushrooms stuffed with vegetables

Makes: a starter for 8 persons

Preparation and baking time: 30-35 minutes

Ingredients:

8 (2 to 2 1/2 inches in diameter) white mushrooms (1 lb)
4-5 spring onion stems
1 big potato
1 clove of garlic
200ml cream
30g (2 tbsp) butter
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180C/360F.

Rinse the mushrooms thoroughly under running tab water without submerging them, and pat dry immediately. Carefully hollow the inside of the caps of the mushrooms, saving the stems.

Slightly salt the caps and put a small dice of butter in every cap (saving 1tbsp of it). Place them in a baking dish and bake for 10 minutes.

Meantime chop finely the spring onions, garlic and mushroom stems. Peel and shred the potato. In a frying pan over medium heat melt the rest of the butter and add the vegetables. Season with some salt and pepper and let them sweat for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are almost cooked and all the vegetables are soft. Stirring, add the cream and leave for just one minute.

Remove the vegetable filling from heat and allow cooling for 5 minutes. Take of the mushroom caps and cool them slightly too. When the vegetable mixture has cooled enough check the seasoning and carefully spoon into every mushroom cap.

Return the stuffed mushrooms in the oven for 10-15 more minutes, until the filling is golden.

Let the mushrooms cool slightly before serving.

  • Lovely recipe… ! Wonderful pictures, will try it soon !

  • Yum! I love stuffed mushrooms….your beautiful pics are making me drool! I can’t wait to make them. Have you tried portobellos with this recipe?

    • Hi Jenn,
      The mushrooms I usually use for this recipe are champignon or button mushrooms. I never tried portobellos this way, but I guess they’ll be fine. If you going to use portobellos, you probably have to reduce the time for baking, as they are not so thick as champignon. Good luck!

  • Beautiful recipe, looks amazing!

    I wish only people that actually tried the recipe would leave comments, sort of as a review. I KNOW it looks GOOD. That’s why I clicked on it. But how does it taste? “Yeah, it looks gorgeous” doesn’t help me, people.

    Mmm. This snack sounds entirely homosexual. Not in a bad way, more in a Mr. Clean and Richard Simmons cuddling by the fire kind-of way.
    “Let’s get to stuffing those mushrooms, Rich”
    “Oh yeah, Feel the burn, Mr. Clean. I’ll bring the potatoes.”
