Think of a jumbo stuffed mushroom without all the high-fat ingredients but with all the flavor. Serve these alongside grilled chicken breasts or a juicy steak.

  • 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet or roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place mushroom caps, gill-side up, on the prepared pan. Sprinkle with ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper. Roast until tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, oil, the remaining ⅛ teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Remove the mushrooms from the oven and top each cap with about 2 tablespoons of the breadcrumb mixture, spreading evenly. Return to the oven and roast until the breadcrumbs are browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Easy cleanup: Recipes that require cooking spray can leave behind a sticky residue that can be hard to clean. To save time and keep your baking sheet looking fresh, line it with a layer of foil before you apply the cooking spray.

Delicious and simple. I added soy sauce to the mushrooms before roasting.

This sounds good but shouldn't be labelled as vegetarian. Parmesan is made from rennet from sheep's bladders and is not suitable for a vegetarian diet. Replace it with vegetarian hard cheese or something else.

Delicious I really enjoyed this. I prepared it in about 5 or 6 minutes after getting home later than normal, and it wasn't heavy on my digestive system since it was later. It was delicious and I'll be adding it to my rotation of regular meals now. Pros: Easy, quick, healthy Cons: Finding large portobella mushrooms can be difficult sometimes
