Meatless Stuffed Mushrooms


I love stuffed mushrooms but not the calories that come with it. I always have veggies on hand and this turned out to be a hit with my family.

12 stuffed mushrooms


  • 1 cup shredded zucchini

  • ¼ cup shredded carrots

  • 1 tablespoon minced canned water chestnuts

  • 1 tablespoon pine nuts

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 tablespoon oil, or more as needed

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 (10 ounce) mushrooms, stems removed

  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Combine zucchini, carrots, water chestnuts, pine nuts, and garlic in a mixing bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add vegetable mixture and cook until slightly soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and return to the mixing bowl to cool.

  4. Add Parmesan cheese to the cooled vegetables; mix to combine. Fill each mushroom with a generous amount of vegetable mixture, sprinkle cayenne pepper on top, and place on a baking sheet.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until mushrooms are tender, about 12 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I used a mandolin for the vegetables to get super thin shreds without a lot of time.

The nuts and water chestnuts are for texture.

Be careful not to add a lot of salt because the Parmesan cheese can be salty.

The cook time will depend on the size of the mushrooms; bake larger mushrooms for longer.
