Healthy Food Recipes: Italian Portobello Mushroom Recipes

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Additional Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 60 minutes

Servings: 4


  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed and caps wiped clean
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Steps to Cook:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Prepare the portobello mushroom caps: a. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and discard or save for another use. b. Wipe the mushroom caps clean with a damp paper towel. c. Place the mushroom caps on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Make the filling: a. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. b. Add the minced garlic and diced onion. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the onion is translucent. c. Add the diced tomatoes and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. d. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the cooked quinoa, Parmesan cheese, chopped basil, and dried oregano. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  4. Assemble the stuffed portobello mushrooms: a. Spoon the filling mixture evenly into the mushroom caps, pressing it down gently. b. Top each stuffed mushroom with a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese.
  5. Bake the stuffed portobello mushrooms: a. Place the baking sheet with the stuffed mushrooms in the preheated oven. b. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  6. Serve the Italian-style stuffed portobello mushrooms warm, garnished with additional fresh basil, if desired.

Cook’s Note:

  • For a heartier meal, serve the stuffed portobello mushrooms with a side salad or roasted vegetables.
  • Adjust the amount of filling based on the size of your portobello mushroom caps.
  • You can use other types of cheese, such as crumbled feta or shredded cheddar, instead of Parmesan and mozzarella.
  • Experiment with different herbs and seasonings to customize the flavor profile to your liking.
  • These stuffed portobello mushrooms can be prepared in advance and baked just before serving.
