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
32 small button mushrooms
(about 1 pound), stems removed and finely chopped
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)
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.
