  • 2 Tbsp Garlic Minced
  • 4 oz Feta cheese Diced. regular or non-dairy
  • 2 sausages Plant-based, apple sage Sliced lengthwise x2, then sliced widthwise into small pieces (1/4 inch).
  • 1-2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 370 degrees

  • In a pan, bring 1/4 of the vegetable broth to a boil

  • Add the rest of the vegetable broth and seasoned stuffing then mix together until well blended
  • Before ready to load into the mushroom caps, fold in diced feta cheese and sausage
  • Scoop the filling and load it into the mushroom caps. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top of each stuffed mushroom
  • Bake for 15-20, check at 15 min to see if the cheese is melted. Add 5 min if necessary

Notes

Melissa’s Modifications:
I love stuffed mushrooms as you vary what you fill them with. Makes a lovely hors d’oeuvre, main with a side salad, or as a side with a piece of grilled fish or chicken.
Other stuffing ideas are sauteed spinach with onions topped with cheese or sliced sausage with marinara sauce topped with cheese.
*Cleaning Mushrooms – Place in a strainer or colander in your sink and rinse them with water. You can softly rub off any excess dirt on the mushroom cap. Lay out on paper towel or kitchen towel – carefully pat dry. 
Enjoy!
