Stuffed Mushrooms

Super delicious, versatile and packed full of vitamins and minerals; mushrooms are a vegetarians best friend. And, one of the best was to enjoy them, is stuffed with breadcrumbs, a couple of favourite ingredients and roasted to perfection in the oven. This recipe is a great vegetarian main, appetizer or even side dish. Perfect for a dinner party but equally as good as a quick meal on a busy week night. If serving as a main, accompany with a crisp salad or steamed veggies.

To make great party food you could stuff small button mushrooms and accompany with the tahini sauce for dipping. Make sure you use fresh breadcrumbs and nice big mushrooms. Accompanied with the simple tahini yoghurt sauce this stuffed mushroom dish is an absolute favourite.
