This is a great recipe for those of us who love mushrooms and sometimes overbuy them…

We find ourselves with random packs of mushrooms that we don’t even remember purchasing.

You can do a lot of things with mushrooms, in fact, we try to eat them as often as we can.

We eat it in our burritos, salads, quesadillas, smoothies really anywhere it could fit.

Mushrooms are a great source of:

Selenium

Water

Protein

Healthy Fats

Calcium

Phosphorus

And Mushrooms benefit:

Diabetes

Bone Health

Nutrient Absorption

Water Intake

Blood Pressure

So if you have some extra baby bellas laying around, here’s an idea!


Ingredients:

Serves 3 – 4 (Appetizer/Side meal)

As many portabella mushrooms as you think you can fit…

Usually about 10 stuffed mushrooms with these measurements.

Vegan Cream Cheese ~ 8 oz container

3 Tsp Paprika

2 Tsp Garlic Powder

1 Tsp Onion Powder

1 Tsp Pepper

2 Tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Lemon Juice

¼ – ½ cup red onion diced fine

3 small mushrooms diced fine

1 Tbsp of oil (We use Safflower or Olive Oil)

Instructions:

Heat your air fryer up to 350 degrees

  • Oil up a pan and saute your diced mushrooms and onions on a low temperature until caramelized and fragrant. Saute as long as you would like, we prefer ours pretty soft. Then set aside.
  • Next, combine cream cheese and spices in a bowl, mix the spices in well. You could set the cream cheese out ahead of time. If it is warmer it will spread easier.
  • Then, on the bottom side of your mushrooms, make a small slit with a knife. Then cram them with as much of the cream cheese mixture as you can! The cream cheese will melt into the mushroom and the top will caramelize. It is a beautiful thing, we are in love!
  • After you stuff your mushrooms, put them into the air fryer for about 10 -15 minutes. You can do it a bit longer if you would like, but ours were nice and gooey on the inside with a firm outer edge.

These are seriously delicious.

They kind of came from our love of stuffed peppers. We love stuffing jalapenos with cream cheese, so we figured why would mushrooms be any different?

We are working on an oven recipe for those that do not have an air fryer. It may work in an oven with the same temperature and time, but we have not tried it yet.

We want to figure it out, but honestly we have been obsessed with this air fryer since we got it.

Also, our house heats up really bad when we cook in our oven, so it’s really a matter of survival.

No one likes being uncomfortably hot!
