Nut-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Ingredients:

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stalks removed and chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • A handful of nuts of your choice (walnuts, pecans or even cashews), toasted and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Step One: Light the grill!

Step Two: While waiting for the grill to heat, prepare the stuffing mix by heating 1 tbsp of olive oil in a frying pan. Add onions and fry until soft and translucent, then add the chopped mushroom stalks. When lightly golden, add the garlic, spices, breadcrumbs and prepared nuts and fry for two minutes.

Step Three: Toss the portobello mushroom caps in the remaining olive oil, with salt and pepper to season

Step Four: Grill mushrooms until tender, starting on the side with the cavity and flipping when soft. Remove to a plate when grilled through.  

Step Five: Spoon the nut mixture into the mushroom cap hollows and grill for a few more minutes, until warmed through.

These make great veggie burgers or served on their own with a green, quinoa or rice salad.
