chutney and cheese stuffed portobello mushrooms


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

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.
