Stuffed Mushrooms with Ham and Vegetables

Every bite of these mushroom morsels boasts a burst of flavor from juicy ham, shredded carrot, and minced green onion. The crunchy walnuts add texture and the chili sauce lends a hint of spice.




Serves 8; 4 mushrooms per serving

Ingredients

32 small button mushrooms

(about 1 pound), stems removed and finely chopped

Cooking spray

1 medium carrot, shredded

2 ounces lower-sodium, low-fat ham, all visible fat discarded, diced

1 slice whole-grain bread (lowest sodium available), toasted and diced

¼ cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

1 large egg

2 tablespoons diced walnuts, dry-roasted

1 medium green onion, finely minced

1 tablespoon chili sauce (lowest sodium available)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.

Put the mushrooms with the cap side up on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the caps with cooking spray. Turn the mushrooms over.

In a medium bowl, stir together the chopped mushroom stems and the remaining ingredients. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of the mixture into the cavity of each mushroom.

Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the filling is heated through.
