Portobello Mushroom Bake

October is Mushroom Month, and today we’re back to share a delicious new recipe to help you incorporate more mushrooms into your diet. 

This quick and simple portobello mushroom bake makes for a tasty mid-week meal or an impressive side dish at a large family feast. Try it on its own for an easy vegetarian dinner or alongside your favourite grilled meats.

Serves: 4       Prep time: 20 minutes         Cook time: 30 minutes

 You’ll need:

  • 150g easy-cook long grain rice
  • 4 large Portobello mushrooms, stalks removed
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion or 6 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 small courgette, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh chives or parsley
  • 50g natural Greek yoghurt
  • 100g Red Leicester or mature Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Cook the rice in lightly salted boiling water for 12 minutes, according to pack instructions.
  2. Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan oven 170°C, Gas Mark 5.
  3. Put the mushrooms, gills facing up, into a roasting tin. Chop the stalks.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the red onion or spring onions and courgette for 3-4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, chopped mushroom stalks and herbs and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Drain the rice thoroughly and stir it into the vegetable mixture. Season with salt and pepper, then spoon into the mushrooms.
  6. Mix together the Greek yogurt and cheese, then spoon it on top of the rice mixture. Transfer to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown.

Cook’s tip: Authentic Greek yoghurt works best in this dish, as it’s really thick and creamy.
