Hints and Tips

Here I've served these on a bed of fried ready-to-serve polenta as I was short on time, however it's easy to make your own! I like mixing grated zucchini or a few tablespoons of homemade pesto into the batter before cooling. These mushrooms also work well with freshly steamed green garlicky beans. If you have a barbecue you can prepare the filling and pre-stuff the mushrooms. Wrap each mushroom in foil and cook on a barbecue for 8-10 minutes.

  1. We made these the other day when it was nice and sunny outside. They were delicious! The mushroom were super juicy and we liked the idea of integrating the stalks into the recipe. MMM!
