Stuffed Mushroom RecipesGo straight to our recipes
Our stuffed mushroom recipes are one way you can make cooking and eating vegetables interesting.
There is something mysterious about the mushroom : after all fairies use them to sit on and sometimes to live in! Mushrooms for some reason have always been associated with the supernatural, perhaps it's something to do with the fact they can spring up overnight!
The mushroom is a fungi. Some are deliciously edible while others are deadly poisonous. Unless you really know what you are doing it's not advisable to pick your own. Be safe and buy from the store where you will know what you are buying.
BuyingBuy mushrooms which are firm to touch. The ones which are discoloured or bruised are past their best. Buy them in paper bags if you can because the plastic ones make the mushrooms sweat which in turn makes them past their best sooner. Store in the refrigerator and make our stuffed mushroom recipes soon after purchasing as they will only keep for about 2 days.
For our recipes it's best to choose the large flat ones. Don't peel them as their skin provides wonderful flavouring which you wouldn't want to miss. All you need to do is chop them off at the base of their stems and wash them under cold water. Keep the stems for stuffing the mushroom with.
Our stuffed mushroom recipes make a great starter if you have guests you want to impress. They are just right, delicious to taste but not too filling, leaving plenty of room to look forward to the next course.
