- 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems removed
- 1 cup spinach, chopped
- 1/2 cup bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese (or vegan cheese), crumbled
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (use gluten-free if needed)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
Preheat the Air Fryer:
- Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
Prepare the Mushrooms:
- Clean the portobello mushrooms and gently remove the stems, creating a hollow space for the stuffing.
Prepare the Filling:
- In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced bell pepper, red onion, and minced garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are softened. Stir in the chopped spinach and cook until wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Assemble the Stuffed Mushrooms:
- Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the mushroom caps, both inside and outside. Spoon the sautéed vegetable mixture into each mushroom cap, pressing down gently to fit as much filling as possible.
Top with Cheese and Breadcrumbs:
- Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese (or vegan cheese) over the stuffed mushrooms. Then, top each mushroom with a layer of breadcrumbs.
Air Fry the Stuffed Mushrooms:
- Place the stuffed mushrooms in the preheated EaZy MealZ Air Fry Crisper. Air-fry for 10-12 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the cheese is melted.
- Carefully remove the stuffed mushrooms from the EaZy MealZ Air Fry Crisper and place them on a serving plate. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and added freshness.
