Stuffed Mushrooms with Goana Tuna Bites

Servings: 2

  • 6 Cremini Mushrooms, stems and gills removed
  • 2 oz sriracha tuna bites, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Yellow Onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Spinach, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Bell Pepper, finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil, plus extra for brushing
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat Oven: preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth, remove their stems, and gently scrape out the gills. Brush the outside of the mushrooms with olive oil and set aside.
  2. Cook Ingredients: heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped yellow onion and bell pepper, cooking until softened, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and chopped spinach, cooking until the spinach is wilted and the garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes. Stir in the finely chopped tuna jerky, mix well to incorporate, and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with dried oregano, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat and let it cool slightly.
  3. Prep Stuffing: in a mixing bowl, combine the veggie and tuna jerky mixture with the softened cream cheese and half of the grated Parmesan cheese. Mix until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Spoon the Filling: into each mushroom cap, pressing down slightly to pack the mixture. Sprinkle the tops with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake: arrange the stuffed mushrooms on a baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the tops are golden brown.
  6. Allow to Cool: for a few minutes before serving. These stuffed mushrooms can be served as a delicious and healthy appetizer or a light main course.
