Simplest Stuffed Mushrooms

June 15, 2022

Serves 2

Cook time: 20 minutes


  • 4 large flat mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Baby spinach
  • Black olives, pitted and sliced
  • Semi-dried small tomatoes in oil and herbs (from the deli counter), roughly chopped
  • Dried chili flakes
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Pesto
  • Cheddar or other bitey cheese
  • You can add any other bits and pieces you like to this dish, or leave out any you don’t like 🙂


  1. Preheat oven to 180c on a fan grill setting. Remove stalks from mushrooms and chop the stalks finely. Add some olive oil or butter to a frying pan and add the mushroom stalks along with the crushed garlic and stir. Throw in the olives, tomatoes, chili flakes if using and some baby spinach. Once the mixture is starting to wilt add some grated parmesan if you like. Add pepper to taste and salt only if required. The Parmesan is already quite salty. Mix gently.
  2. Lay the mushrooms on a parchment-lined baking tray. Spread about a teaspoon of pesto or to taste onto each mushroom and then spoon over the mixture from the pan. Top with Cheddar slices to cover each mushroom and its stuffing.
  3. Bake/grill for 10-20 minutes or until cheese is golden and melted.
