I have a few recipe variations for making stuffed mushrooms. This chutney and cheese stuffed portobello recipe is my favourite because it reminds me of a childhood favourite - Amma's tomato chutney. This recipe is portobellos drizzled with a bit of olive oil, baked in the oven then topped with piquant tomato chutney, feta or homemade paneer. Bake until the cheese melts, top with fresh coriander. Enjoy a gluten-free, vegetarian and guilt-free lunch, dinner or snack.

Why eat Portobello Mushrooms


Portobello mushrooms are essentially the mature form of brown Agaricus bisporus (commonly known as Swiss brown mushroom, Roman or Italian brown mushroom). Mushrooms are one of my favourite meat substitutes. Apart from taste and texture, its high vitamin D content makes them my essential meatless Monday ingredient, especially on cold, dark winter ones like today. They can have caps of up to 15cm in diameter, making them ideal for stuffing. They are low in calories and are the perfect canvas for creating various stuffed flavour combinations.

How to Prepare Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


To prepare this type of mushroom for stuffing, wash with cold water then pat dry with a towel. Scrape out gills with a teaspoon and cut the stem. The stem can be reused. I chop into small pieces and freeze for making mushroom soup. This will provide a hollow for filling with stuffing.

I prefer to bake the mushrooms first before adding stuffing as this allows excess moisture to escape before adding the stuffing and other toppings.
