Raw Stuffed Mushrooms

As summer is coming up, I figured, why not make some fun finger food that can be served at parties and will really impress and delight. Yes, I literally thought this out loud. Good weather can improve a mood and when you’re in a good mood the next logical step is a party – right? Right!

The next time you’re going to such an event why not bring raw stuffed mushrooms, they can be made without a dehydrator, just some prep time before hand.

Lidia Le Francois, raw nuts

Stuffing:
1/2 cup raw almonds (soaked at least 2 hours or over night)
1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds (soaked at least 2 hours or over night)
1/2 cup celery or celery pulp from juicer
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp brown miso
2 packages of cremini or button organic mushrooms

Combine the seeds/nuts first in a high speed blender/food processor – do not purée, just mix until semi chunky. Then add in the rest and a few short pulses should do it.

Mushroom marinade:
1/2 tbsp cold pressed olive oil
1/2 tbsp Nama shoyu/Coconut aminos (non-raw: use soy sauce/tamari)
1 tbsp nutritional yeast

If you are using a dehydrator – combine the mushroom marinade ingredients with the mushrooms and proceed to stuff the mushroom caps. Then place on the dehydrator tray – you might have to take out the first tray as the stuffing might be too high for the mushrooms to fit and use every other tray. Should make one and a half trays. Set at 105F for an hour or to your warm preference.

If you are not using a dehydrator – let the mushrooms marinate in the marinade mix for a few hours or even over night. When ready, stuff the mixture into the caps and place in the oven at 375F  for a 15 minutes just to warm up.

Dress up the mushrooms with sprouts, zucchini, and a side of raw salsa. If you want this to be nut free – just use the pumpkin seeds.

Happy eating!

  1. These look amazing! I don’t have a dehydrator so I will have to try the w/o version. I have never soaked almonds other other nuts [bad vegan over here] so do I just put them in water that covers them and let them sit?

      Most people soak nuts over night, but you can soak them for hour hours minimum. Exactly that, just cover them with water and let them sit.
