  • 4 large caps Portobello mushrooms
  • 1 serving Vegan Chili ¼ serving per mushrooms (3-4 Tbsp)
  • 4 Tbsp Grated cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Prepare the portobello mushrooms

  • Gently wash any dirt off of them by using a colander or a sieve. Dry them with a paper towel or clean kitchen cloth. No need to peel, just snap the stalk out leaving only the gills in.

Let's make the stuffing

  • Our favorite stuffing is an easy vegan chili loaded with veggies, legumes and grains. You can find detailed instructions with step-by-step photos and 1-min video tutorial by visiting our Easy Vegan Chili recipe.

Baking the stuffed portobello mushrooms

  • First, pre-heat the oven to 395 Fahrenheit (200 degrees Celcius). Add a splash of olive oil and season the mushroom caps with salt and pepper. Add 3 Tablespoon stuffing to each cap and top them with grated cheese. Large caps are soft and ready in approx. 20 minutes.


We like to eat chili stuffed portobello mushrooms with toppings like
  • grated cheese or vegan parmesan or cashew cream cheese
  • vegan sour cream
  • guacamole or chopped avocado,
  • hot salsa,
  • spring onion, chives, or cilantro,
  • breadcrumbs.
A quick & useful tip: they have a lot of other names so don't get discouraged if you can't find portobello mushrooms in your local store. Try to look for cremini/crimini mushrooms, or white/brown button mushrooms or baby bella mushrooms or Italian brown mushrooms or champignon mushrooms. They all practically the same.
