  • 16 oz mushrooms (white button or baby bella)
  • 3 tbsp vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne, optional
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegan parmesan Cheese
  • 4 oz vegan cream cheese (we like Wayfare best)
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Carefully, rinse the dirt off of the mushrooms.  Do not soak mushrooms in water. Instead, wipe off the dirt with a damp paper towel or lightly rinse under cool water and dry them with a towel carefully.
  • Remove, but do not discard, them stems. Set aside.
    Place the mushroom caps on the baking sheet.
  • Finely chop the mushroom stems, onions and garlic.
  • In a medium skillet, melt butter and add chopped mushroom stems.  Cook for about 5 minutes, until most of the moisture has been removed. 
  • Add in the onions and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes, until the onions have softened.
  • Add in the red wine vinegar and stir together.
  • Add panko breadcrumbs and spices and stir together.  Let the breadcrumbs toast in the mixture, for about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure it doesn't burn.
  • Remove from heat. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add mushroom mixture to a bowl, along with the vegan parmesan, vegan cream cheese, fresh thyme and parsley. Stir together well. 
  • Fill the mushrooms caps with the filling, but do not overfill. They will puff up a bit while cooking. 
  • Bake until the tops are golden brown, 20-25 minutes.
