Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed Mushrooms are a wonderful dairy-free appetizer. With only 8 ingredients they’re a cinch to make! This Paleo recipe is one of my favorites. The super tasty filling for these Stuffed Mushrooms is made of sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts and has lemon juice, parsley, and garlic to kick up the flavor profile. Better yet? To make this healthy stuffed mushroom recipe, all you need to do is pull the stems out of the mushrooms, blend the filling in a food processor, stuff it into the mushrooms, and bake. Just a few quick and easy steps for this amazing Paleo recipe.

Stuffed mushrooms have been a favorite of mine since I was a girl. The only downside to typical stuffed mushroom recipes is that they usually contain dairy. My Stuffed Mushrooms, however, are dairy-free so that everyone can enjoy them!

In other news, here’s an adorable photo of our amazing house bunny. He’s so cute! When we eat dinner he nudges our feet so that we’ll pet him while he’s under the table. He loved posing under this beautiful bouquet of flowers and I just couldn’t resist snapping a shot of him, looking so adorable! Hats off to Rex the bunny!

  1. Such a sweet bunny! We had house bunnies over the years and one would sit on my slippers when I read the paper after the kids went to school. Rex looks very content.

    • Nicole, thanks for your comment! Some experts say mushrooms are allowed, others say they are not because they are a relative of yeast :-)

  2. This recipe looks great. Do the stuffed mushrooms freeze well? Do you recommend freezing before or after baking?

  3. Elana,
    I made the stuffed mushrooms for dinner last night. Both our guest and I are on low-carb, grain-free, dairy-free diets. We LOVED these! The recipe says it serves 4. We were three and there is only one mushroom left, only because no one wanted to be the one who finished the plate. Definitely a keeper.
    Thanks so much for all you do.


  4. Are mushrooms okay for celiacs because some say that they are contaminated with wheat (for example: in the dirt when grown)

    • If things could be contaminated from the dirt they are grown in, wouldn’t every veg run the risk of contamination? I don’t think that could be true…but I may be wrong

  5. Can’t wait to try this recipe for Thanksgiving! I just had one question – do you think basil would work as a good substitute for the parsley? I have a couple of family members who have an absolutely hatred for parsley (& cilantro). Thanks!

  6. I absutely love this recipe! I’ve been searching for GF/DF recipes and this site has been such a great resource. These stuffed mushrooms have become a favorite at home and at parties, with many recipe requests and astonishment that they are vegan. I find I need less oil, like adding some of the stems back in, and that the pesto always fills way more mushrooms regardless. Freezing the pesto also has been an awesome option for fast prep later. Thanks, Elana!
