These Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms are oil and dairy free, and super easy to whip up for company, or an appetizer for the family. 

I reeeealllly love mushrooms- how about you? My obsession has gotten so bad that I now eat RAW mushrooms with hummus- something I never thought I would do. And I don’t even think it’s possible to have pizza without fresh mushrooms. Notice I said fresh. None of this canned nonsense. 😊

Another thing I love to do with mushrooms is stuff them, and pesto (one of my other favorite things) is an obvious choice.

To make these Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Remove the stems from the mushrooms and discard or chop for another use (hmm…pizza?).

Add parchment paper or a silicon baking sheet to a baking pan and add the mushroom caps, stem side up.

To a food processor or blender, add the pine nuts, walnuts and nutritional yeast, and process until finely ground. Add the garlic cloves, sundried tomatoes,  basil leaves, spinach, almond milk and salt. Process until blended, but still a little chunky. You may need to stop blending a couple times, scrape the sides and blend again.

Using a spoon, fill each mushroom with pesto (see below) and place each mushroom back on the parchment paper. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and bake for 20-25 minutes.

Serve these mushrooms immediately. Makes 20-25 mushrooms. They will stay in the fridge for 1-2 days in an airtight container, but I recommend eating them immediately for the freshest taste. If reheating, I would suggest reheating in the oven or a toaster oven.
