Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

Portabella or Portobella are huge mushrooms, round but with flat caps. They have black gills underside and the stem is edible. The best part of Portabella mushrooms is they have a rich and meaty texture and flavour, which it retains the meaty flavour even after cooking.

The Portabella mushroom, Agaricus bisporus, is also known as Agaric cultivé, Champignon de Paris, and Cultivated Mushroom. Like all fungus varieties, Portabella natural sources of vitamin D, copper and selenium. A mature mushroom is also a good source of vitamin B6 and niacin.

When I saw this recipe at Mayuri’s place, I wanted to try it immediately and luckily I found Portobello mushrooms the same day. So I adapted the recipe to suit my daughter’s taste. It is Caprese style only since the cheese is less I have not labelled it as such.

The main ingredients of Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms are of course portabella mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil, chives, garlic, butter.

I have tried Caprese style in the past as

The other mushroom dishes that will add to the variety are

Stuffed Portabella Mushrooms

  • Serves:  5 pieces
  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10-15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 5 portobello mushrooms
  • 20 cherry tomatoes cut into halves
  •  mozzarella ( I will recommend 100 grams but I used about  50 grams max.)
  • 2 tbsp chives fresh
  • 4 basil leaves fresh
  •  2 1/2 tbsp butter
  • 10-12 garlic cloves
  • 3 slices bread toast
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp chilli sauce, adjust as per taste
  • salt to sprinkle on top

Method:

  • Remove stems and the gills (I am not sure if this is a step needed but most recipes said this and hence I removed them).
  • Reserve the stems and discard the gills.
  • Wash and wipe the mushrooms.
  • Heat butter in a pan.
  • Add garlic and stir-fry for a few seconds.
  • Cool and apply to the mushrooms with the garlic butter.
  • Marinate the mushrooms in the soya sauce and chilli sauce mixture.
  • In the balance garlic butter, add the mushroom stems chopped. Cook covered.
  • Add bread toast crumbled coarsely, chives chopped and mix well.
  • Switch the oven on at 180°C/400F. You can grill them too switch the grill on high.
  • I used a glass lid of casserole and placed the mushrooms on the lid.
  • Fill the caps with the toast and stem filling.
  • Add the sliced tomatoes. Sprinkle with chives.
  • Tear the basil and add to the mushroom.
  • Add the mozzarella (I used miserly quantities as kiddo refuses to eat).
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese melts.
  • Serve garnished with chives.
  • Serve this dish along with some soup or a salad.

Notes:

  • I would like more basil and cheese but the family members do not enjoy them so I cut the quantity.

    Looks amazing and filled with loads of flavours. I consume mushrooms only in 2 ways, either in a stuffed sandwich or in Italian style as they have a strong aroma and earthy scent which I am not very fond of but consume only due to its health quotient. This appetizer is something I would certainly like as its masked with cheese, tomatoes and herbs.

      March 25, 2018 at 8:38 pm

      LOL, not all will like the earthy flavours of mushrooms, especially these mushrooms. But then it builds on you.

    This one looks delicious Archana, I am not really a mushroom person but loving this one.

      True not many people like mushrooms. I am glad you have liked this one.

    I have no observation to make in this post as mushroom is not my favourite.
