Ingredients

  • eight-ounce package whole baby bella mushrooms (cremini) washed, dried, stems removed and reserved
  • 1  Tablespoon  olive oil
  • 1/2  Cup  yellow onion, chopped
  • cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Zoë’s Spice of Life seasoning, to taste
  • half pint Zoë’s Pimento Cheese, softened
  • Italian flat-leaf parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Directions

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Finely dice the stems that you removed from the baby bella mushrooms.

Heat oil over medium heat in a small nonstick skillet. Add onion, chopped mushrooms stems, and garlic. Cook until mushrooms are tender and have begun to shrink and onion and garlic are fragrant and translucent. Stir in a generous sprinkle of the Spice of Life seasoning, to taste.

Remove from heat. Mix with Zoë’s Pimento Cheese in a small bowl. 

Place mushroom caps in a baking dish stem side up 1 to 2 inches apart. Stuff each cap with an even amount of the pimento cheese mixture.

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, until heated through and mushrooms are tender and cheese is beginning to melt. Let cool slightly and transfer to a serving tray. Garnish with chopped parsley. Enjoy!

Pimento Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Pimento Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.
