"Scarborough Fair" Stuffed Mushrooms

I am a child of the 70's and this classic dish is inspired by Simon & Garfunkel! 

The harmonious combination of fresh herbs: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, taste exquisite up against that deep-earthy mushroomness. 

Cap these off with some vegan mock parmesan cheese and you've got a recipe made in music-to-the-taste-buds heaven! 

This recipe is made all the more groovy if you can step out into your own garden and harvest the herbs for Free!  (*Cooking From Your Culinary Herb Garden article; Coming Soon!)


"Scarborough Fair" Stuffed Mushrooms

1/2 cup Panko Japanese Bread Crumbs (optional)

4 tbsp organic Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme (chopped and mixed)

4 Cloves Garlic, minced

25 organic White Button or Crimini Mushrooms

1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes or Cayenne (optional)

1/4 cup organic Grapeseed or Olive Oil

Fresh Lemon Wedges for squeezing (optional)

Sea Salt & Pepper, to taste

1/2 cup Vegan Mock Parmesan:

1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast Flakes

1/4 cup Raw Walnuts

Sea Salt and Pepper, to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

In a blender or food processor, blend nutritional yeast and walnuts until coarse cheesy granules form, season to taste.  Set aside.

*A helpful tip for the herb mixture, make the bulk parsley, with about a tsp-tbsp each of the other more pungent herbs.

In a large mixing bowl, prepare the filling.  Combine and blend mock parm, panko breadcrumbs, herbs, garlic, salt and pepper plus half the oil.  Lightly mix with hands or fork until incorporated.

Remove stems from mushrooms and stuff with filling.  Arrange mushrooms on baking sheet and drizzle remaining 1/8 cup of oil over the top of mushrooms. 

Bake 15-25 minutes.  You really have to decide with your eyes when they are done.  I like mine good and juicy, where the mushroom goes soft and is easy to cut through with a fork.  You want the tops to get golden and crusty and the bottoms to be cooked through. It's best to check on them and pull them out when they look good rather than going by the time. 

Ovens really vary and so do mushrooms!  Organic mushrooms cook much faster and get softer.  Crimini's remain intact and have a more firm and chewy texture than white buttons.  Crimini's have a rich earthy taste but I prefer the texture and moisture the buttons have so use them almost exclusively for this recipe. 

Try an assortment of 'shrooms and see what fungus is the funnest for you!  ;)

This is a great dish to bring to gatherings and it's satisfying in a meaty way while still being delightfully animal-friendly.  Even your non-vegan mates will be inspired by this one.  It's an easy introduction to how yummy going vegan can be!
