Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 to 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 to 25 minutes
Servings: 20 

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 20 cremini mushrooms, washed and stems removed
  • 2 cups fresh chopped basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons pepitas
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Here's how to make it: 

  1. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, panko and parsley. Mix and set aside.
  2. Put the mushroom caps upside down on a baking sheet. 
  3. Prepare a food processor with the S-shaped blade. Place all remaining ingredients in the food processor and process until evenly mixed.
  4. Generously stuff each mushroom with the filling mixture. Sprinkle approximately 1 teaspoon of the breadcrumb mixture on top of each filled mushroom. Pat down so the topping sticks to the mushrooms.
  5. Place mushrooms in a preheated 350-degree F oven and bake 10 to 15 minutes until filling and topping are golden brown.

Tips: This recipe can be prepared a day in advance. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Use on sandwiches, flatbreads, meats and in pasta recipes.
