To be honest, they are have been a long time coming…

I love stuffed mushrooms and so often find that they aren’t vegetarian (you may or may not know, I have long had a preference for vegetarian food even though my family are omnivores).

So it’s been on my mind to make a gluten-free and vegetarian stuffed mushroom that I would love!

Once you try these, you won’t be surprised I love them — they have all my favorite mediterranean flavors in one bite and are just so yummy!

Taste-testing to get the right balance of flavors was not a problem lol

So let’s look at the ingredients.

They made with just 7 ingredients + olive oil and garlic…

Mushrooms, onion, fresh baby spinach, sun dried tomatoes packed in oil, feta, parmesan and gluten-free panko crumbs.

And they are super easy to make!

First you prep the mushrooms.

It’s best to use a hearty mushroom, like a baby bella.

The key is not to wash the mushrooms in water but to rather clean them with a damp cloth so that they are not water-logged. This way they won’t get mushy when they bake.

Then remove the stem, leaving a space in the center of the cap which will hold the stuffing.

And don’t throw out the stem, chop it into tiny pieces to put in the stuffing.

Next you make the stuffing which comes together really quickly,

The stuffing is all the rest of the ingredients.

So first you saute the onion, mushroom stems and sun dried tomatoes.

Then you add the garlic and spinach.

Then you remove from heat and add the panko, feta and Parmesan, reserving some feta and Parmesan for topping.

Then it’s time to stuff the mushrooms!

Top with extra cheese and bake!

They bake for just 15 minutes, in which time the mushrooms become tender and juicy and the filling is piping HOT!

So just wait 5 minutes before biting into them even though I know you’ll want to!

Don’t they look so good?
