Stuffed Mushrooms

If you're looking for a really simple and tasty dinner then stuffed mushrooms are a great choice. If you are in a real hurry then 2 minute microwave rice can be used and the dish pulled together in 15 mins although i prefer cooking the rice fresh. This dish is packed with flavour and was thoroughly enjoyed! 


  • 2 large mushrooms, per person (Peeled)
  • 75g wholegrain rice, per person
  • 1 veggie stock
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • goats cheese, chopped (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Boil the rice in 1.5 litres of water (do NOT use a lid) and add the stock cube to the pan, should take about 30 minutes.
  2. When the rice has been cooking for 20 mins, grill the mushrooms on a medium heat for 5 minutes
  3. The rice should absorb all the water but if it doesn't then you can drain some away.
  4. Mix in the tomatoes and cheese to the rice and stuff on top of the mushroom cups, grill for a further 5 mins (There will be some rice left which you can plate up without a mushroom). 
  5. Serve up with some corn on the cob or veg of your choice.
  6. Enjoy! Cassidy xx
