The vegan Thanksgiving recipe you didn’t know you needed.
It always surprises me when people say they dislike mushrooms because I could eat a platter of these as a meal! The flavors are top notch and the texture is perfect. I have adapted this recipe from one of my all time favorite cookbooks The Superfun Times Vegan Holiday Cookbook by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, I highly reccommend adding it to your kitchen library! Let’s jump right into this recipe!
Prepare your tempeh!
- 3 TBSP coconut aminos
- 1 TBSP olive oil
- 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
- 1 – 8 oz package of Tempeh
Whisk together all the wet ingredients and crumble in the tempeh. Marinate for 45 minutes to an hour.
I find it easy to crumble the tempeh while its still in the package so I don’t have to get my hands dirty and can just pour it right in from the bag.
Clean and prepare your veggies!
- 3 – 8 oz packages of Cremini mushrooms
- 1 medium onion
- 1 green bell pepper
WASH them mushrooms! Remove the stems and chop em up along with the onion and bell pepper.
Let’s get cooking!
- 2 TBSP minced garlic
- white pepper
- garlic & herb seasoning
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
- 1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Parm shreds
- 5 chopped green onions
Heat up some oil in a big skillet and add you onion and bell pepper, saute until soft add in the garlic and all the spices (I think spices should be to taste so get creative) stir until combined, and slowly add in your marinated tempeh along with a little more olive oil. Let all of that cook together for about 10 minutes and remember to stir frequently. Add in the parm shreds and bread crumbs and stir until the bread crumbs are toasty and the “cheese” is melted. Next, add in your chopped mushroom stems and re-season with your spices, let the mushrooms release water, and add water as needed, (I personally added about 2 ounces of extra water). Take off heat and fold in green onions let cool off slightly. Your mixture should not be dry, everything should stick together!
Melt some vegan butter, (I like Earth Balance buttery sticks or Miyokos Oat milk butter) and spread on your sheet pan and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Fill up your mushrooms with the delicious filling and bake at 350 for 25 minutes!
