Ingredients And Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Gluten Free Stuffed Mushrooms. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
You can use whole baby bella or crimini mushrooms for this recipe. You can also use portobello mushrooms if wanting a bigger option instead of bite sized.
Yellow onion is subtly sweet and adds a great flavor, you may also use white onion instead.
Fresh garlic is going to add a ton of flavor, alternatively you can use garlic from a jar.
Use fresh cilantro for best results, if you don’t have access to fresh cilantro, dried will work as well.
Room temperature cream cheese is going to make mixing the ingredients easy and seamless. If looking to make this recipe dairy free, you can use a dairy free cream cheese alternative.
An egg is going to help glue all the ingredients together and create a fluffy texture after the mushrooms are baked. I have not tested with recipe without an egg.
Use gluten free bread crumbs to keep this recipe free from gluten, otherwise, regular bread crumbs will work just the same.
I personally love to use freshly grated parmesan cheese as I believe it adds a much greater flavor. However, you can use pre-grated cheese or opt for a dairy free version.
Salt and pepper to taste to really mend all the ingredients together.
How To Make
ONE: Prepare the mushrooms by rinsing and drying well. Then, remove the stem from each mushroom and add to a bowl. Using your hands break down the mushroom stems by crushing them in between your fingers. You can also use a knife to chop them.
TWO: In a medium sauté pan over medium heat, add in the oil, diced onions and garlic. Mix for 2-3 minutes. Then, add in the chopped mushroom stems and sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.
THREE: In a medium mixing bowl, add in the softened cream cheese, egg, gluten free bread crumbs, freshly grated parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and the cooled onion mixture from the stovetop. Mix with a fork until well incorporated.
FOUR: Next, using a small spoon stuffed each mushroom cap with the filling and add to a baking sheet that’s lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with additional gluten free bread crumbs, then bake for 30-35 minutes. Let cool slightly and enjoy!
