What You'll Need

  • 12 large mushrooms (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small zucchini, shredded
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs*

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  2. Remove the mushroom stems from the caps; finely chop the stems.

  3. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushroom stems, zucchini, onion, and bell pepper. Sauté the vegetables until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Need specific measurement for zucchini onion -- cups, ounces, etc. Small zucchini, small onion not valid measurement terminology especially if I don't have that size on hand and just want to chop the size of the veggies I have on hand.

Hello! We refer to sizes of veggie/fruit instead of cup amount because we get a lot of requests from folks with questions like, "How many do I have to buy to make 2 cups?" We find that letting people know exactly how many of the veggie/fruit is needed is easier for most people. We understand that our idea of medium may be different from yours, so we suggest comparing the veggie/fruit to other of the same kind in your store and selecting one that is average-sized to be your medium. Thank you for your comment!
