Creating a blog was out of the question for a long time for me, as measuring everything in the kitchen was like biting into an eggshell. I enjoy cooking and don’t want to waste even a slightest bit of enjoyment in that small world of mine. But little did I know that everything will change, when my husband came home with the Oscar nominated film ‘Julie and Julia’( a real life story) where Julie Powell (part played by Amy Adams) challenged herself to make all the 524 recipes from Julia Child's cook book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ and blogging all her experiences (The Julie/Julia Project). It was an inspiring movie. A few days later when we were discussing this casually with a friend of ours over tea…everything changed dramatically…..” How about you making at least half of it in one year? Not French but your own. 262 recipes that will inspire others and present it as a blog?” For a minute my mind traveled faster than light… With an experience as a helper in my mother in laws kitchen for 6 years followed by a three year everyday struggle to satisfy the palate of my foodie husband, if I cannot do it then why should I cook? But on the other side with an experience in English literature extending no more than expanding outline stories in English grammar class when I was 18 and two small kids that come in handy at times, will a commitment for the next one year work? Anyway my ‘cook's ego’ didn’t allow me to say no...

So my friends …here I am opening my recipe book, trying to perfect and present 262 recipes in the coming 365 days….A Challenge that will of course tastes good. Come.. Have a walk with me along my journey.. Cheering and inspiring….Forgiving and tolerating…Testing and tasting….for ‘A Tasty Challenge’

Stuffed Mushrooms

Recipe No: 293
This is the simplified vegetarian version of the Chicken Stuffed Mushrooms that I posted earlier. It is easy, delicious and perfect for an appetizer.
Ingredients                                                    Serves 3
  • Mushrooms…………......8 oz/ 227 Grams/ 12 small Mushrooms
  • Oil……………………………1 Tablespoon
  • Onion chopped………....1/3 Cup
  • Garlic chopped fine…..1 big clove
  • Cream Cheese…………..4 oz/ ½ Cup/ 125 grams (At room temperature)
  • Bread Crumbs…………..1/4 Cup
  • Butter……………………...1 Teaspoon
  •  Salt and Pepper to taste
Method of Preparation
  1. Clean the Mushrooms and remove the stems taking care not to break the caps.
  2. Chop the stems finely and keep aside till ready to be used.
  3. Heat Oil in a pan on medium high heat and saute the Onion and Garlic till slightly translucent.
  4. Add the chopped Mushroom stems and saute till it is cooked for about 2 minutes.
  5. Add necessary Salt and pepper and switch off the heat. Let this mixture cool to a room temperature.
  6. Once the mixture is cooled, mix in Cream Cheese and make sure the seasonings are on spot.
  7. Preheat the oven to 400˚F/ 205˚C.
  8. Lightly salt the Mushroom Caps and fill it with the Cream Cheese mixture. It is okay if some of the filling covers the top of the Mushrooms rims especially, if the space inside the Mushroom cap is very small. Repeat this with all the Mushroom and place them on a greased baking tray.
  9. In another bowl, melt Butter and mix it with the Bread crumbs.
  10. Sprinkle the Bread Crumbs over the stuffed Mushrooms and bake it in the preheated oven for 20 minutes or till the Bread crumbs are slightly brown and crispy.
  11. Once the Mushrooms are cooked, remove from the oven and serve hot.
  • I used Baby Bella Mushrooms (with a brown cap) in this recipe but regular white button Mushrooms will be good.
  • To clean the mushrooms, I give it a light rinse and wipe it thoroughly to remove the Water. Don’t let the Mushrooms absorb too much Water while rinsing.

Make it, enjoy the deliciousness and 
serve it to your family with love…
