Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms  
Okay, another mushroom recipe?! Seriously guys, I can’t help it. I’m mushroom o-b-s-e-s-s-e-d! I made these Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms last week for a fun family appy and we ate these tender and juicy mushrooms up in seconds!

These Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms are pretty simple to whip up, use the entire mushroom (no wasting the stems here!) and are filled with a super meaty, tomato-mushroom-walnut stuffing made with hot peppers for a REAL kick!

It’s been exactly a month now since J and I moved across the ocean to Toronto (my hometown!) and I started a new job as junior writer in the city. It’s been a crazy, busy month guys and we are settling right in. We’ve caught up with friends and family and have been exploring the city on the weekends. It’s been fun re-exploring the city with J after living abroad and in other cities in Canada for the past several years. Are you from Toronto? What are your favorite spots in the city? πŸ™‚

It just started to cool down here and I am loving the crisp, refreshing Autumn air. Fall means comfort food, pumpkin, Halloween, boots and Thanksgiving, of course. πŸ˜‰ We are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend and we are already planning out the appies, main course and dessert. This Thanksgiving is extra special because it will be J’s first Thanksgiving in Canada!

These Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms are going to be one of the appetizers we serve for the holidays. They are SO incredibly flavorful and are the perfect food to serve for a party or family get-together.

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms making

The stuffing is made from sauteed garlic, onion, hot peppers, tomato, mushroom stems, crushed walnuts and herbs. I almost skipped on stuffing the mushrooms altogether and ate the stuffing right then and there!

The mushrooms are then stuffed with the spicy mushroom-walnut meat…

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms


  • Author: Ceara
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 18 mushroom caps 1x

Description

Juicy Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms stuffed with a flavorful mushroom-walnut meat stuffing. The perfect appetizer to serve for a party or get-together!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 18 cremini mushrooms
  • 12 tbsp grapeseed oil*
  • 1 small white onion or 23 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 sprig thyme, hard stem removed
  • 1 tsp herbes de provence
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 1/2 heaping cup walnuts
  • 12 tsp hot peppers*
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste.

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F/190C. Remove mushroom stems from mushrooms (do not discard the mushroom stems – you will be using them for the walnut-mushroom meat stuffing). Brush the mushroom caps with grapeseed oil (if using). Place the mushroom caps round side down on a lined or lightly oil baking sheet.
  2. Prepare crushed walnuts by crushing them in a mortar and pestle (see photo) or processing in the food processor for a couple spins until course crumbs form. Do not over process or else the nuts will get too oily!
  3. Roughly chop the mushroom stems.
  4. In a large pan, over high heat, saute onion, garlic, thyme and herbes de provence with a couple splashes of oil (or splashes of vegetable broth to keep this recipe oil free) until the onions and garlic have softened.
  5. Add tomato and mushroom stems to the hot pan. Saute for a couple of minutes until soft. Add crushed walnuts, nutritional yeast and hot peppers to the pan and saute for another couple of minutes. Season with sea salt and black pepper to taste. Stir in nutritional yeast.
  6. Stuff the mushroom caps with the mushroom-walnut stuffing (see photo). Bake in the oven for 16 – 20 minutes until the mushrooms are slightly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
  7. Serve warm as an appetizer!

Notes

1) Leave out grapeseed oil to keep this recipe oil free and use vegetable broth to saute the vegetables.
2) Adjust hot peppers based on how much of a kick you like!

  1. Hi Ceara,
    Delicious recipe!
    Have you frozen these and then baked them?
    What do you suggest for making these ahead of time?
    With Gratitude,

  2. Could you sub the fresh thyme for dried? or is there another fresh herb that could work too? Having trouble finding fresh thyme where i am!

    1. The nutritional yeast adds the “cheesy” flavor to these stuffed mushrooms. You can leave it out and they will be less cheesy but still delicious!

  3. Congratulations on your job!
    Thank you for the tasty vegan stuffed mushroom recipe. πŸ˜„ It was enjoyed at our Livestrong graduation. I was really on the mood for these. I personally could have crushed the walnuts finer. I can’t wait to serve them at our next party with family.

  4. I made these for a party and they were a huge hit! I had enough of the stuffing left over that I used it to make stuffed shells with a spicy marinara. So amazing! My husband couldn’t believe how “meaty” it was! Keep the recipes coming, girl!

  5. I’m mushroom obsessed too! And I’m always looking at stuffed mushroom recipes but they’re never healthy or vegan, so I’m stoked to try yours. Sounds like you’re having a good time re-discovering Toronto. I’m happy for you!

  6. Congratz to your new job and good luck in Toronto!! It’ll be awesome, I’m sure. I think you should bring a try of these stuffed mushrooms to work. That’ll quickly make you the most popular employee over there πŸ˜‰

  7. I enjoy Thanksgiving with family and friends! I always love to served something new and your stuffed mushrooms sounds real flavorful. I’m pinning for later.

  8. Congrats on the new job and being back in your hometown! These mushrooms look awesome, the tomato in the filling sounds really different and delicious! I would say they would be a great Thanksgiving side dish, but actually I could see them as a vegan thanksgiving main even!
