Filled with a delicious combination of finely chopped courgette, spinach and hazelnuts, then topped with grated Parmesan cheese and baked, these mushrooms make a very tasty, hard-to-resist party bite. They look their best if the mushrooms used are all about the same size.

IngredientsServes: 16

  • 16 large closed-cap chestnut mushrooms or small field mushrooms, all about 4 cm (1½ in) diameter, about 250 g (8½ oz) in total
  • 30 g (1 oz) butter
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 small courgette, finely chopped
  • 15 g (½ oz) baby spinach leaves, finely shredded, plus extra leaves to garnish (optional)
  • 30 g (1 oz) fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
  • 30 g (1 oz) hazelnuts, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
  • 45 g (1½ oz) Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • salt and pepper

MethodPrep:30min ›Cook:15min ›Ready in:45min

  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF, gas mark 4). Remove the stalks from the mushrooms and chop finely. Melt the butter in a frying pan, add the chopped mushroom stalks, shallots, garlic and courgette, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the shredded spinach, breadcrumbs, hazelnuts, parsley, and season to taste.
  3. Put the mushroom caps, hollow side up, in a single layer in a lightly greased shallow ovenproof dish or on a lightly greased baking tray. Heap some of the shallot and courgette mixture into each mushroom cap and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the top. (The mushrooms can be prepared 2–3 hours ahead and kept, covered with cling film, in the fridge.)
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes or until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese has melted. Serve warm, on a bed of spinach leaves, if liked.

Parmesan cheese

Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.

Some more ideas

For mushrooms stuffed with spring greens and walnuts, use spring greens in place of spinach, 1 red onion in place of shallots, chopped walnuts in place of hazelnuts, and fresh basil or coriander in place of parsley. * Make mushrooms with red pepper and pine nut filling. Sauté the mushroom stalks in 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil with 4 finely chopped spring onions, ½ small seeded and finely chopped red pepper and 1 crushed garlic clove for 5 minutes. Stir in 30 g (1 oz) chopped pine nuts, 15 g (½ oz) chopped watercress, 30 g (1 oz) fresh breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp finely chopped parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Fill the mushroom caps with this mixture and sprinkle with 45 g (1½ oz) finely grated mozzarella cheese. Bake as in the main recipe.

Plus points

Mushrooms provide useful amounts of some of the B vitamins and are a good source of the trace mineral copper. This mineral has several functions – it is found in many enzymes, and is needed for bone growth as well as for the formation of connective tissue. * Hazelnuts were known in China 5000 years ago and were also eaten by the Romans. They are a particularly good source of vitamin E and most of the B vitamins (with the exception of vitamin B12).

  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons whole-wheat panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs), divided

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup), divided

Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon mushroom mixture into each mushroom cap. Stir together remaining 3 tablespoons panko and 2 tablespoons Parmesan in a small bowl. Working with 1 at a time, gently dip the stuffed tip of each mushroom cap in panko-Parmesan mixture to lightly coat return to baking sheet. Lightly coat tops of stuffed mushrooms with cooking spray.

Finely chop the mushroom stems and set aside. Place the mushroom caps on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.

Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes more. Turn off the heat and stir in the parsley, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons each of the pecorino and panko.

Preheat the broiler. Divide the spinach mixture evenly among the mushroom caps. Sprinkle each with the remaining 1 tablespoon pecorino and panko, then broil until golden brown, 2-3 minutes. Serve warm.

Recipe Summary

  • ½ cup uncooked wild rice
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 10 fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 Cornish game hen, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning, or to taste
  • ½ teaspoon dried crushed rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Bring the rice, a pinch of salt, and water to a boil in a saucepan with a lid. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid, and simmer the wild rice until the kernels burst open, 45 to 50 minutes. Replenish the water if necessary. Fluff the rice with a fork, and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes to absorb water.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Grease a baking dish large enough to hold the game hen.

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet, and cook and stir the mushrooms over medium heat until they are partially cooked and starting to give their juice, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir the mushrooms and butter into the cooked rice.

Sprinkle the game hen, inside and out, with poultry seasoning, rosemary, and salt and pepper. Lightly stuff the Cornish hen with the wild rice mixture, and tie the legs together with cooking twine to hold in the stuffing. Slice 2 tablespoons of butter into small pats, and dot them around the bird.

Bake the bird in the preheated oven until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 40 to 50 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove the game hen from the oven, cover with a doubled sheet of aluminum foil, and allow to rest in a warm area for 10 minutes before slicing.
