Gluten and Dairy Free Stuffed Mushrooms
These gluten and dairy-free stuffed mushrooms are the perfect appetizer or side for a gathering or the holidays! They’re plant-based, paleo, and easy to make.
Stuffed mushrooms are one of those appetizer classics! They’re usually cheesy, and have ingredients like breadcrumbs to make for a savory appetizer that’s a total crowd-pleaser. This version of stuffed mushrooms is grain-free, and dairy-free but still just as delicious, if not more! I can’t put these down whenever I make them, and even my husband who isn’t a mushroom fan went back for seconds.
The Ingredients for Gluten and Dairy-Free Stuffed Mushrooms
- White Button Mushrooms. Make sure you get mushrooms that are larger for even more filling.
- Almond Flour. Almond flour is the substitute for something like bread crumbs in the recipe, and they really add that crisp element to the mushrooms.
- Parsley, Thyme, Garlic, Salt, and Pepper. These ingredients really add a unique flavor to the mushrooms.
How to make Gluten and Dairy Free Stuffed Mushrooms
- Clean the mushrooms and remove the steams.
- Chop and saute the mushroom stems with garlic.
- Make the filling. Add the mushroom mixture to a bowl and combine it with the herbs, and almond flour to make the filling
- Fill the mushrooms. Spoon the filling into the mushroom caps. You want the caps to be full, with some of the filling coming out of the top. Lightly drizzle with avocado oil.
- Bake and serve!
Are stuffed mushrooms healthy?
These mushrooms are totally plant-based, dairy-free, and gluten-free, so we’d call them pretty healthy!
How do you store these mushrooms? How should you reheat them?
Holidays get busy, so it’s totally understandable to try and make some recipes ahead of time to save time. Though these mushrooms are still best fresh, you can make them the night before and store them in the fridge. To reheat, turn the oven to 350 F and reheat for just a few minutes.
Can you make stuffed mushrooms in the air fryer?
Though I haven’t tried it with this particular recipe, it should work just fine. I would cook it at 400 F for about 12-15 minutes and go from there.
Can Stuffed Mushrooms be a main course?
I would still recommend serving these with a protein like turkey or chicken, but they’d be a great side dish!
What protein can you add to stuffed mushrooms?
This recipe is vegetarian, but you can also add cooked sausage, cooked ground turkey, or even cooked chopped bacon to the filling if you’d like to add protein.
