  • Celery: A small stalk of celery would be perfect to add crunchiness and balance to the dish.
  • Lemon juice: A splash of lemon juice can be squeezed on top before serving to add acidity and brightness to the dish.

Now that we have talked about the ingredients, it is time to get cooking! This recipe may seem complicated at first, but with some patience and focus, you’ll be whipping up these delicious Baked Mushrooms with Brazil Nut Stuffing in no time.

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Preheat your oven to 180°C.

Step 2: Make the Brazil Nut Stuffing

In a mini blender, place two cups of fresh basil leaves and one cup of brazil nuts. Blitz until the mixture becomes coarse. Add three cloves of garlic, finely chopped, and a tablespoon of lemon juice to the blender. Blitz again until everything is mixed thoroughly.

Step 3: Sauté the Onions and Mushrooms

In a skillet, melt one cup of butter over medium heat. Once melted, add one finely chopped onion to the skillet and cook until softened for about 3-4 minutes. Then add four cups of mushrooms, finely chopped, along with a celery stalk (or two). Cook until the mushrooms are tender.

Step 4: Mix Everything Together

Once the mushrooms are cooked, add the brazil nut pesto from step two to the skillet along with one cup of soft breadcrumbs. Mix everything together thoroughly. Sprinkle some salt over the stuffing mixture and let it cook for 3-4 more minutes before turning off the heat.

Step 5: Stuff The Mushrooms

Take each mushroom cap and spoon in some stuffing, making sure not to overfill it as it may leak out as it bakes. Place the stuffed mushrooms on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with olive oil.

Step 6: Bake Them!

Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

That’s it! Your delicious Baked Mushrooms With Brazil Nut Stuffing are now ready to serve.

I know that some people like to get creative in the kitchen and try out new ingredients or variations on classic recipes, so allow me to share some possible substitutions and variations for this Baked Mushrooms With Brazil Nut Stuffing Recipe:

– Instead of Brazil nuts, you could use other nuts like pine nuts, almonds, or pecans for the stuffing. This will give the dish a different flavor profile and texture, depending on your choice of nut.

– If you don’t have ketchup on hand or don’t like its sweetness, you can use tomato paste or puree instead. You might want to add a bit of honey or sugar to balance out the acidity.

– For a vegan or dairy-free version of this recipe, you can substitute the butter with olive oil or coconut oil. You can also omit the cheese and use nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.

– If you don’t have fresh basil for the pesto, you can use dried basil or swap it for another herb like parsley, cilantro, or rosemary. You can also add garlic or lemon juice to the pesto for extra flavor.

– To make these stuffed mushrooms more indulgent and savory, you can mix in cooked sausage or bacon crumbles with the nut stuffing. You could also sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese on top before baking.

Remember to adjust the amounts and cooking times accordingly when making substitutions or variations. Don’t be afraid to experiment and make this recipe your own!

Now that you have made these delicious stuffed mushrooms with Brazil nut stuffing, it’s time to serve and pair them. These mushrooms make an excellent side dish or appetizer for a fancy dinner party, but they also work perfectly as a main dish for a cozy night in.

To enhance the flavors of the mushrooms, I recommend serving them with a fresh green salad tossed in a citrusy dressing of lemon juice and olive oil. The acidity of the dressing will brighten up the nutty flavors of the mushroom plus the lemon juice adds a nice tangy flavor to the dish.

Another great option is to pair these stuffed mushrooms with some roasted vegetables such as carrots or zucchini sprinkled with a little bit of ketchup on top. The vegetable’s sweetness and tanginess from ketchup complement surprisingly well the nutty undertones of the mushroom.

If you’re looking to make this meal more filling, add baked potatoes as a side dish to complement the recipe’s earthy flavors. And if you’re feeling extra indulgent, serve with mashed potatoes; their creamy goodness will tie everything together.

Finally, don’t forget to pair these stuffed mushrooms with a divine glass of red wine! A medium-bodied red like Pinot Noir or Barbera goes well because it has subtle fruitiness with medium tannins that won’t overpower the mushroom stuffing flavors.

These stuffed mushrooms are versatile and delicious, so feel free to let your imagination run wild when choosing what to serve them with!

Make-Ahead, Storing and Reheating

 This dish is not only delicious but also packed with nutrients and vitamins from the mushrooms and nuts.

We all know that sometimes we don’t have enough time to cook every day. But don’t worry, these baked mushrooms with Brazil nut stuffing are perfect for preparing ahead of time.

If you’re planning on making these stuffed mushrooms ahead of time, you can prepare them up to 24 hours before baking. Simply stuff the mushrooms with the filling and place them on a baking tray then cover them with plastic wrap and put them in the fridge until you’re ready to bake them.

To reheat the stuffed mushrooms, preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C) and place the stuffed mushrooms on a baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes, or until heated through.

These baked mushrooms make for great leftovers too! Store any leftover stuffed mushrooms in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to eat them again, simply reheat them in the oven as instructed above.

It’s important to remember not to microwave the leftovers, as this will make the bread crumbs soggy and ruin the texture of the dish. Reheating in the oven is the best option for maintaining a crispy texture.

So go ahead and impress your friends and family with these delicious make-ahead baked mushrooms with Brazil nut stuffing. They’ll never know they were made ahead of time!

If you are a fan of stuffed mushrooms, you know that getting the perfect texture and flavor is essential. Here are some tips to make sure every bite of your baked mushrooms with Brazil nut stuffing is a taste of paradise.

Firstly, when preparing the bread crumbs for the stuffing, make sure that they are not too finely ground. Coarsely chopped bread crumbs will add texture to your mushroom stuffing. If you have leftover bread that has gone slightly stale, use it to make your bread crumbs, as it will hold up well during the cooking process.

Additionally, be generous with the Brazil nuts in your stuffing. Not only do they add extra nutrition to your dish but also an earthy flavor and satisfying crunch. You can always finely chop them and sprinkle them on top before baking to add an extra layer of flavor and texture.

A crucial factor in achieving that perfect golden-brown finish on your mushroom caps is brushing them with melted butter or olive oil before baking. This will not only provide a crispy exterior but also help keep the stuffing moist and flavorful.

When baking, be careful not to crowd the mushrooms too much as they need space to cook and release moisture. To avoid soggy mushrooms, line the baking dish with parchment paper which helps to absorb any excess moisture.

Finally, while serving, drizzle some lemon juice or ketchup over the finished dish for an added tangy twist. I highly recommend pairing these baked mushrooms with a light salad or roasted vegetables for a well-rounded meal.

In summary, follow these simple tips to get perfectly baked mushrooms stuffed with Brazil nut pesto every time you cook them: coarsely chop the breadcrumbs, generously add Brazil nuts to the stuffing mixture, brush mushroom caps with butter or olive oil before baking, avoid overcrowding in the baking dish, use parchment paper to line the dish, serve with lemon juice or ketchup as desired and complement with other sides such as salad or roasted vegetables.
