This vegetarian recipe combines gooey cheese with zesty garlic and spices that will make you forget about meat.

Ingredients

  • 1 eight-ounce package whole baby bella mushrooms (cremini) washed, dried, stems removed and reserved
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 Cup yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Zoë’s Spice of Life seasoning, to taste
  • 1 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!
