Take three ingredients !

Each of these three recipes use just three ingredients
(the first and third recipes are lower carb)
Pesto and Parmesan stuffed mushrooms
Turn your favourite stuffed mushrooms into an easy canapé with this speedy three-ingredient recipe. Filled with vibrant fresh pesto and a golden Parmesan topping, they make a tasty, warm party nibble for any occasion. Could also be a delicious snack for lunch 😋

(12 servings)
12 closed cup mushrooms
40g basil pesto
20g Parmesan

Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Remove the stalks from 12 closed cup mushrooms and place, skin-side up, on the tray. Bake for 5 mins.
Turn the mushrooms over, then fill each hollow with about ½ tsp basil pesto.
Finely grate 20g Parmesan and sprinkle a little over each mushroom. Bake for another 5 mins or until lightly golden.
Serve warm.

Mackerel Fishcakes

Oh my gosh, Jan & Eddie. I haven't made stuffed mushrooms in forever. They are so good in the air fryer too. Gotta pick some up next trip to ALDI. Yum.

I adore mushrooms. Himself refuses to eat them. All the more for me.

Sandi said...

Stuffed mushrooms! Mmmm.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay I love mushrooms - but they have to be cooked - don't like them raw and in salad. But I love stuffed mushrooms.

CJ Kennedy said...

They all look delicious, thanks for sharing the recipes.
Have a great weekend!

Iris Flavia said...

Great recipes! I need to do all three at once - dumb idea? Will the fish "ruin" the other dishes?
Our oven takes up to 15 minutes to get hot so I gather food to really use it...
Hm. Also... no idea where to find such huge mushrooms... but it sounds so yummy!

My name is Erika. said...

I'll skip the stuffed mushrooms (I don't mind the taste but the texture bugs me), but everything else looks so yummy! Happy weekend.

Victor S E Moubarak said...

I love mushrooms. Will try this recipe first ... then the others.

God bless.

This is a year for a recipe file refresh. Those are a good start. Thank you.

Anne (cornucopia) said...

These sound good. (I used my Thanksgiving Stuffing recipe to make stuffed mushrooms. Delicious.)

Bill said...

These sound excellent!

Divers and Sundry said...

This looks wonderful! I'm adding ingredients to my next grocery list. Thanks!

Debbie said...

these are great recipes!! i LOVE stuffed mushrooms, prepared any way and this is a great way!!

Mary Kirkland said...

Most of that sounds really good. With the price of a dozen eggs being around $8, I doubt I'll be making any egg dishes any time soon.

Angie's Recipes said...

I love all of them, esp. the fish cakes!

Shari Burke said...

I once had a stuffed mushroom dish like that at a hotel breakfast--large mushroom caps stuffed with pesto and tomatoes. It was delicious!

The other two recipes look great. I will keep them to try! Thanks!

Teresa said...

Unas recetas estupendas, me quedo con la de los champiñones. Besos.
