DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Clean the mushrooms and separate the caps from the stems, keeping the stems to use later.
  • Slice off a thin piece across each cap's inside so the mushroom's opening becomes wider and flatter. Also save these mushroom scraps.
  • Place your mushroom caps, open-side-up, on a large cookie sheet or non-stick pan (pizza pans work nicely).
  • In a food processor, combine garbanzo beans, mushroom pieces and onion. Chop them into a fine, nearly paste-like consistency.
  • In a skillet, saute garlic in margarine, then place the processed combination in the pan and cook over medium-high heat.
  • Stir in oil, corn meal, basil, parmesan cheese and salt.
  • Keep mixing well as you continue to cook the ingredients together for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Allow the stuffing to sit in the pan and cook for a few minutes, browning and crusting slightly. Turn, and brown the other side.
  • After approximately 7-8 minutes, the stuffing is ready to be scooped into the mushroom caps. (Spritzing the mushroom caps with cooking oil is recommended.).
  • Using a normal kitchen spoon, scoop generous mounds of the stuffing into each cap, pressing firmly to create packed mounds on each cap. Any leftover stuffing can be sprinkled around the caps.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.
