Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms
Love mushrooms? Then you’ll love this recipe for vegan stuffed mushrooms! It’s also gluten-free…and best of all, FULL of flavor and incredible texture – and sure to be a hit with your friends and family.
You’ll want to pick up mushrooms that are small enough to be considered finger food but big enough to be stuffed with the yummy filling you’re going to make. Baby bella mushrooms, also known as crimini mushrooms, are a great choice.
Most stuffed mushroom recipes call for tons of cheese, sometimes butter. Of course, since we are going vegan with this recipe, there isn’t any dairy to be found here. Instead, I used vegan parmesan to add that cheesy flavor (it’s REALLY delicious, try not to eat it all with a spoon before adding it to the stuffed mushroom filling!)
If you can’t eat nuts, go ahead and leave out the pecans. You can replace them with pepitas (pumpkin seeds.) Still adds that crunchy texture, and still super festive!
