Stuffed Field Mushrooms

Mushrooms are a great addition on the BBQ grill. Easy to cook and can be eaten as an alternative to a burger

Serves: 4
Time to prepare: hr 10 mins
Time to cook: hr 15 mins
Dietary requirements: Dairy-free, Egg-free, Halal, Kosher, Vegan


  • 4 large field mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 40g/1½oz chopped mixed nuts
  • 1 tomato, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 50g/1¾oz vegan grated cheese
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh herbs (parsley, dill, coriander, and thyme all work well)
  • 1 tsp soya sauce
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Make the filling first. Remove the stalks from the mushrooms and put the tops to one side. Chop the stalks and gently fry with the onion for five minutes.
  2. Add the garlic, nuts, tomato, lemon juice, most of the cheese and herbs, and soya sauce.
  3. Remove from the heat and season as required.
  4. If cooking your mushrooms on a traditional BBQ, place the mushrooms underside down for a couple of minutes. This will allow them to cook evenly.
  5. Turn the mushrooms over and fill each one with the mixture. Top with the remaining cheese and continue to cook until juicy and ready to serve – approximately 12 minutes depending on the heat.
  6. Serve the mushrooms with a garnish of the remaining herbs. Alternatively, serve them in bun with a slice of fresh tomato in the style of a veggie burger.


Chef’s tip: This is a simple filling but let your imagination run free. Cooked spinach, pine nuts, sundried tomatoes, cooked artichokes, spices, and breadcrumbs are all possibilities. If it’s a rainy day, the mushrooms can be cooked under a grill or in the oven.
