This was very good. I stuffed them ahead of time so I didn't pre cook the mushrooms, just baked them at 400* until they were hot and broiled the cheese on top. I didn't have any carrots, but I added some celery, a bit of chopped okra, and used green onions. I also skipped the breadcrumbs to keep it lower in carbs, and topped with tomato slices.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler. Brush tops of mushroom caps with 1 tablespoon oil and place on a baking sheet. Broil until almost tender, 3-4 minutes per side. Place cap-sides down on baking sheet.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and saute the pepper, carrot and onion until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the Cajun seasoning and remaining 2 tablespoons butter; stir until melted.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the breadcrumbs until well coated. Gently mix in the tuna.
  4. Fill mushroom caps with tuna mixture and top with 2 tablespoons cheese each. Broil until cheese melts.
