Pine Nut Stuffed Mushrooms

My oh my are these ever yummy. If you’re a big stuffed mushroom fan in general, you’ll go wild for these cute little pine nut stuffed mushrooms. You’re probably going to giggle when I say this, but these cute bite-sized snacks are the 2012 of stuffed mushrooms. Seriously.

They’re not difficult to make and literally take 30 minutes from start to finish. That’s right — no slaving in the kitchen over a hot oven. They’re tender and soft. Now normally, I prefer a chewier mushroom but I love the soft feel and texture of these. They’re perfectly savory and would be lovely drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray, for the baking dish
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup minced white onion
  • 1/2 Cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 Cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1/2 Cup pine nuts, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons salsa, preferably organic
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 24 large button mushrooms, stemmed
  • 2 chives, chopped finely

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 6 minutes. Add the cooked brown rice, quinoa, carrots, pine nuts, salsa, sea salt, and pepper. Cook until warm, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Using a teaspoon, transfer the rice mixture into each mushroom cap. Slightly overstuff the mushroom caps with the rice mixture. Place the stuffed mushrooms in a single layer on the baking dish. Bake, uncovered for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and garnish with the fresh chives. Serve warm.

Pine Nut Shopping Tip

Look for bright green leaves free of dark spots. The leaves should be dry and are best kept wrapped in a paper towel in a bag when storing in the refrigerator.

Pine Nut Cooking Tip

When using basil in a hot recipe, add it only at the last minute. Otherwise you will lose the flavor and fragrance of the herb.
