4 stuffed mushrooms


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, divided

  • teaspoon salt, plus 1/4 teaspoon, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 4 portobello mushrooms (about 14 ounces), stems and gills removed (see Tip)

  • ¼ cup finely chopped red onion

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed

  • 1 cup reduced-sodium black beans, rinsed

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • ½ cup shredded pepper Jack cheese

  • Pico de gallo for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Combine 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/8 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Using a silicone brush, coat mushrooms all over with the oil mixture. Place the mushrooms on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake until mostly soft, about 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring, until almost soft, about 3 minutes. Add cumin and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir until incorporated. Add corn and beans; cook, stirring, until hot. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and cheese. Divide the mixture between the mushrooms and bake until the cheese is melted and the filling is heated through, 5 to 7 minutes. Serve with pico de gallo, if desired.


Tip: To prepare portobello mushroom caps, gently twist off the stems of whole portobellos. Using a spoon, scrape off the brown gills from the underside of the mushroom caps. If you prefer, purchase portobello mushroom caps, rather than whole mushrooms.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
