Gluten-Free Recipe Card and Pictures
1 Small Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
¼ Cup Fresh Basil (add more or less to taste)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
½ Cup Toasted Pinenuts
6 Ounces Feta Cheese
¼ Teaspoon Salt
¼ Teaspoon Pepper
1 Egg (optional)
Smoked Paprika (If the smoked variety is unavailable, just substitute regular paprika)
Wash the mushrooms and remove stems. Place mushroom caps (large mushrooms work best) in oven safe dish (such as Pyrex) sprayed with cooking spray. Place mushroom stems in food processor along with the onion, garlic, basil and olive oil, blend. Add remaining ingredients and blend.
Take filling and heap onto mushroom caps. Lightly sprinkle top of each mushroom cap with smoked paprika. To help brown the mushroom cap, lightly spray each cap with cooking spray. Place in preheated 400° oven for 35 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to set for 10-15 minutes before serving.
