Portobello mushrooms are a vegan’s dream! Create an amazing appetizer your family will rave about with these Vegan Baby Portobello Mushroom Bites. My family loves them, and although I generally take them to parties, my family asks for them for dinner.
Mushrooms contain a high level of antioxidants. Selenium, a mineral not found in most fruits and vegetables, is found in mushrooms. Selenium helps the enzymes in the liver function. Furthermore, Selenium is also known to reduce tumor size and reduce inflammation. In other words, eat your ‘shrooms!
Mushrooms are also fat-free and have a variety of purposes in a plant-based diet. They can be grilled, baked, sautéed; you can stuff them, slice them, and use them crumbled for a meat-textured replacement. Versatile, mushrooms are absorbent, so they take on the flavor of any marinade. They are used for vegan bacon, vegan steak, and the list goes on.
This particular recipe is an appetizer, but the same filling can be used for a full sized portobello mushroom for a meal. I took these to a party, and they disappeared in minutes.
Baby Portobello Mushroom Bites are easy to make, and quick to cook. You can also make the filling in advance and stuff your mushrooms prior to cooking if you wish. Depending on if you are making them at home, or you plan to take them to a party, you may want to cook them at your desired destination.
