Let me tell you why I’m not shy about calling these the ‘Ultimate Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms.' Not one for making big claims about stumbled upon creations that are born out of what I simply have in the fridge, this recipe was the fluke to end all flukes when it comes to stuffed mushrooms. It’s not just that they’re tasty, work well at every meal time or are stupidly easy to make. It’s the fact they put every other stuffed mushroom I have tasted to shame...and I’ve eaten my fair share of stuffed mushrooms.

There are several secret weapons when it comes to achieving such stuffed mushroom greatness and eliminating even one of them will sacrifice an essential layer of deliciousness and may even render them simply good instead of Uh.ma.zing.

The nutmeg and cayenne pepper are musts – omit at your peril and against my advice….I can be quite bossy when I want to be. The coconut milk could be replaced with soy cream but it would be a less healthy choice. At a push the leek might be swapped with half a very finely chopped onion but in all honesty the earthy flavor the leek lends to the dish would be sorely missed. I also insist on the double dose of garlic – fresh and pureed…it’s an absolute must! Oh, and the nutritional yeast is crucial in achieving that perfect stuffed mushroom crust.

Ultimate Stuffed Mushrooms [Vegan]


  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • 1 leek
  • several handfuls of fresh spinach
  • 3 garlic cloves plus 1 teaspoon garlic puree
  • generous grating of nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • salt and pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Peel the mushrooms and remove stalks. Rub each with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
  3. Finely chop the leek. Heat a little oil in a pan and gently fry the leek until soft. Mince the garlic and add to pan along with the garlic puree (if using – recommended) and gently infuse for several minutes before adding the spinach.
  4. Generously grate the nutmeg over the spinach and sprinkle over the cayenne. Season and wilt.
  5. Add the coconut milk, gently heat through, season and set aside.
  6. Fill each mushroom with the creamy spinach filling and top with nutritional yeast. Bake for 25-30 mins depending on your oven. Serve immediately with hot ‘buttered’ toast. For extra B12 goodness, spread marmite on one slice.
