Raw Stuffed Mushrooms

—  found in  Food  —

Guest Post by: Healthy Herbivore

Good day Joyous readers! This week Joy is featuring raw food recipes and I was delighted when she asked me to contribute. Incorporating more raw food into your diet is a great way to ensure you are getting lots of nutrients. One thing I find people miss with raw food is hearty flavours. I know I do! This recipe is a sure fix. It’s packed with protein, omega fatty acids, and sure to satisfy your hearty food cravings!

Raw Stuffed Mushrooms:

The Marinade

6 Large Cremini Mushrooms

1/4 Cup Sesame Oil

1 Tablespoon Wheat Free Tamari (note – Wheat Free Tamari is not raw. If you want this to be 100% you can use Nama Shoyu Soy Sauce or Coconut Amino Acids.)

The juice of 1 Lime, about 2-3 tablespoons

The Stuffing

3/4 Cup Hemp Seeds

1/2 Cup Carrot, chopped

2 tablespoons Cilantro, packed

1 clove Garlic, chopped

1 Teaspoon Cumin

Juice of 1 Lime, about 2-3 tablespoons

¼ cup of Sesame Oil

2 tablespoons Wheat Free Tamari (note – Wheat Free Tamari is not raw. If you want this to be 100% you can use Nama Shoyu Soy Sauce or Coconut Amino Acids.)

Method: Marinade Place the marinade ingredients in a glass baking dish whisk together. Remove the stems of the mushrooms and discard. Lightly cut an “X” in the top surface of each mushroom and place the mushrooms “X” side down in the marinade. Allow to marinate for 45 minutes. You want to mushrooms to soften so if they still feel firm after 45 minutes, allow them to marinate for longer.

Stuffing: Place all of the ingredients in a food processor, and process until semi-smooth. Spoon the stuffing into the mushroom caps.

Nutritional highlights of hemp: Hemp seeds are packed full of protein and Omega Fatty Acids. Omega Fatty Acids have been proven to reduce the incidence of Cardiovascular Disease as well, lower blood Triglyceride levels, and reduce joint tenderness for people with Rheumatoid Arthritis. In addition, Omega fatty acids are important for our overall health as they serve as building blocks and support for the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and nervous systems. Hemp seeds are also an excellent source of complete plant based protein.

A note from Joy:

I've heard it mentioned by many sources that it's best not to eat mushrooms raw. I personally don't see a problem with it, but still tend to cook them. What is your take Joy? Jason.

A lot people are afraid to eat mushrooms because of the misconceptions that all mushrooms are poisonous but this is not the case, in fact a lot of mushroom types are healthy for the body not only that it is also delicious. Just like this mushroom recipe, very yummy!
