These stuffed mushrooms are so easy and flavorful, it’s going to blow your mind.

Start by mincing the tomato, shallot, garlic, and parsley. Season the vegetable mix with the juice of half a lemon, salt and pepper.

For more of a FP side, add just 1 Tbsp of crumbled feta. For an S, add 2 Tbsp of feta.

Remove the stems of your mushrooms and place them cap-side down on a baking sheet.

Fill each cap with about a teaspoon of filling. Some will be more or less, based on their size – just pack as much in there as you can, and fill them to the top of the cap.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. The mushrooms will be softened, but still able to hold their shape.

While they’re still hot, sprinkle with a little bit of parmesan and serve immediately.

The mushrooms are hearty, while the filling is delicate, zesty, and light.

These are perfect to go alongside some grilled protein, or as a fresh appetizer for a holiday party.
