I was recently invited to develop an appetizer recipe for the Mushroom Masters, a global competition that helps celebrate National Mushroom Month (September). Since I love mushrooms, and they are so easy to prepare gluten free and Paleo, I jumped at the chance to participate.
For the competition, I created the recipe for these Herb Stuffed Mushrooms –they make a lovely gluten free appetizer for a cocktail party or nice nosh for a gluten free brunch. While this convenient finger food looks complicated, it is quick and easy to make, healthy and of course, delicious.
I began cooking with mushrooms when I was 13 years old. Back then I stuffed my mushrooms with a processed cheese. Thankfully, my cooking has evolved some since then and I now make these stuffed mushrooms from scratch with goat cheese, anti-oxidant rich parsley, plus chives, and garlic. Even my children chow on these cute little appetizers, which makes me very happy since mushrooms are an excellent source of manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C and selenium.
