Almond and Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms


I would call this a "work in progress" recipe. Since I have been trying to work with almond meal and not breadcrumbs, I decided to make a stuffing for mushrooms. Nutty flavours with some chives and garlic could do the trick I thought.

The result is "ok". I like the texture of the crumbs, but wondered if I could put in maybe chill or even fresh chopped almonds to add another dimension to the texture.

I paired it with some grilled lamb chops and salad. Simple week night dinner.

You can tell that I'm still trying to work out in my head how can I better improve on this dish without the use of breadcrumbs or bacon. Any suggestions? ;)

Almond and Garlic Stuffed Mushrooms
6 mushrooms cups
1/2 cup of almond meal
1 tsp of garlic
small bunch of chives chopped
2 tsp of sesame oil
salt and pepper

Mix almond meal, chives, garlic, oil and seasoning together. Spoon into mushrooms and bake for 10-15 mins in a preheated oven.

The idea of chili or freshly chopped almond sounds good for added texture. Your dinner sounds gourmet :)

Stuffed mushroom, tomato or capsicum are in my to-do list. But, it's still pending. Been seeing a lot of recipe calling for minced meat for stuffing, not not with almond. Good idea!

Nuts are SUCH a great way to add texture! ANd if you want that smoky bacon flavor, maybe add in some smoked paprika?

Sorry, can't help you there since I don't make this. But I definitely loved your idea of substituting almond meal with breadcrumbs, healthier! Just play with it a couple times and I am sure you will get it just the way you want it! :)
