If you’re thinking of a way to celebrate a party the healthy way, baked portobello mushrooms are the way to go! Whether serving it as an appetizer or a side dish or even filling it and serving it as a vegan main course, you can do anything and everything with portobello mushrooms! Not only are they versatile, but they are very delicious and heavenly, so you’ll even forget they’re vegetables in the first place! Maybe, even mushroom haters will become mushroom lovers after trying some portobellos! The portobello mushroom cooking temperature and timing are key for the best result. One common question is this. How long to bake portobello mushroom at 350 degrees in the oven? Let’s talk about this and other tips on perfecting the baked stuffed portobello mushrooms recipe.
Baking portobello mushrooms at 350 degrees F in the oven would take around 25-30 minutes! You’d know they’re done once they’re tender. While 350 degrees won’t hurt your mushrooms so much, it’s better to raise the oven temperature and cook mushrooms at higher temp because mushrooms are full of water! The high temperature will get rid of all the water inside the mushrooms. The lower temps, on the other hand, just let the mushroom simmer in its liquid. So, it’s best to cook portobello mushrooms at around a 400-degree temperature and let them cook for only around 15-20 minutes!
Portobello mushrooms are pretty easy to prepare! And there are plenty of stuffed portobello mushrooms recipes online. However, there’s this one easy portobello mushrooms recipe which I like a lot. Here’s how to cook portobello mushrooms in the oven.
First, you have to clean your portobello mushroom by wiping them with a damp towel. It’s better to do it this way than directly running it in water because the water would make your mushrooms even mushier, which wouldn’t produce a good result.
Then, simply brush the insides and outsides of your portobello mushrooms with a seasoning mix of olive oil, salt, pepper, some garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary. Let the portobello mushrooms sit in the marinade for around 20 minutes.
Then pop them in the oven for 10 minutes at 400 degrees until the mushrooms have a nice brown to them.
If you want to add a little more dazzle and to make your dish fuller, after 10 minutes, stuff the portobello mushroom with mozzarella and parmesan cheese and pop them back in the oven for 5 minutes just to let the cheese melt into some cheesy, savory goodness. See? That’s quite easy!
Instead of baking and keeping your mushrooms whole, you can also try to cut your mushrooms into smaller pieces and simply sautee them on a pan. This is also very easy and much quicker, you’ll need only 10 minutes at most!
You can also roast or grill your mushrooms which are practically the same. Just season your mushrooms the same way (or change it up a bit with balsamic vinegar, oil, salt, and garlic), then cook the portobello mushrooms on the grill for 5 minutes on each side. Then, all that’s left is to serve and enjoy the roasted portobello mushrooms!
You just can’t go wrong with portobello mushrooms! Not only are they very scrumptious, but they’re also really healthy for your body too! And, I simply can’t wait to try some mushrooms later. My tummy is already grumbling just thinking about mushrooms. And maybe, some of your guests would feel the same too. Even if mushrooms are pretty fast to make, if you ever need to double time and cook your mushrooms faster, here are ways you can quicken the process!
A few hours before your guests arrive and before your party starts, you can soften your mushrooms ahead by letting them simmer in some salt and water mixture for a few minutes! So, it won’t take so much time to soften when you start to bake them.
Mushrooms absorb seasoning pretty well! So, if you’re in a hurry, it won’t hurt to skip the 20-minute marinade time for the portobello mushrooms, and you can just pop them right in the oven after seasoning them.
Portobello mushrooms are just yummy! It’s always a delight to have something new, and something healthy! While portobello mushrooms are already amazing in themselves, why not take it up another level? Here’s how you can portobell-woah your guests even more with your portobello!
