  • 6 medium Portobello Mushrooms
  • 2 cups Kale (or Spinach)
  • 1 medium Tomato (diced)
  • 1/8 cup Yellow Onion (diced)
  • 3 tbsp Tomato Sauce or Marinara
  • 1/2 tbsp Coconut Oil (any oil)
  • 1 oz. Vegan Cheese (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


Step 1

Preheat you oven to 425 degrees F and line a small baking pan with lightly greased foil.

Step 2

Prep your mushrooms by brushing clean, removing the stems and gently scraping out the dark/brown part to make room for stuffing. Line them on you baking sheet and cook for 8-10 minutes.

Step 3

In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, melt your oil and add in your diced onions and tomatoes. Let them cook for a few minutes together, then add in your 3 tbsp of sauce/marinara.

Step 4

Prep your kale by washing and tearing it into bite sized pieces. Add it into your sauce pan and let everything cook together for about 5 minutes.

Step 5

Take you mushrooms out of the oven, you’ll notice they’re filled with “water” that’s totally normal. Just take a paper towel and dab each of them to remove the liquid. That’s why you bake them before stuffing, so they don’t get all soggy and gross.

Step 6

Spoon your filling into each mushroom, you should have plenty to fill 6 medium-sized mushrooms. Top each with a little vegan cheese or any other pizza topping you enjoy.

Step 7

Bake on broil for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling/light brown. Let rest for a couple of minutes to cool. Serve and enjoy!

    Okay, so what’s your favorite/recommended vegan cheese? I used to like Daiya but I’ve had some bad experiences with it lately.

      I typically use Daiya as well, however for this particular recipe I was trying out a new cheese and used a monterey jack from the Follow Your Heart brand. I still prefer Daiya, but that’s just my personal preference 🙂

      I like Go Veggie Mozzerella Vegan Shreds. Works great on grilled pizza, so probably good on these.

    I make a different version of this, using very large portobellos..I chop stems and add to filling. My filling includes pre-cooked sweet potato, mixed with cooked onion and thyme. Top with panko and drizzle with olive oil. I think the big mushrooms would make great pizzas too and will try that soon.

      Great idea! That combo sounds really delicious 😀 I typically use large portobellos too, but I thought “mini” pizzas would be cuter! 🙂

    Yum! I don’t know why, but I have not done this recipe yet, but now that it is summer I will!

    I tried this today! I threw a bit of garlic in the sauce because… garlic, and admittedly did not use vegan cheese, and it was great!

    Note for anyone trying this: A couple of my mushrooms got a bit mushed in the packaging, so by the time they made it out of the oven they were practically flat. I was worried this would cause a problem with the filling just falling out, but it didn’t matter at all!

    I also had no paper towels, but the liquid in the mushrooms all evaporated on its own before I had the filling ready, so problem solved with minimal loss of tree life.
