Stuffed Mushrooms

Ingredients:

  • Two packages mushrooms
  • Bread crumbs
  • One clove garlic
  • One onion
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • Olive oil
  • Grated vegan parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Directions:

    Cut up the onion into small pieces or use a food processor. Cut up the clove of garlic and two stalks of celery also into small pieces (or use a food processor).

    Take the stems off of the mushrooms. Pull them out easy so they come out clean and do not break apart.

    Cut up a few mushroom stems or use a food processor. About the same amount of cut up mushroom stems as cut up celery.

    Take the cut up onion, garlic, celery, and mushroom stems and put them into an oiled frying pan over medium heat. Stir and let them get soft. Remove and put them into a mixing bowl.

    Add the bread crumbs a little at a time. You may need to add a little warm water as you go. This is where, if you'd like, add some grated vegan parmesan cheese. The stuffing should be a bit moist.

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    Stuff the mushrooms.

    Place the mushrooms on an oiled cookie sheet. Put into the oven for about 20 minutes.

    Eat. Be happy. Enjoy.
