lamb stuffed mushrooms recipe

Recipe: Lamb stuffed balsamic mushrooms

I love cooking with lamb and recently I’ve been trying out some new lamb mince recipe ideas. These little morsels are great for a party but we like to eat them over dinner with some crunchy roast sweet potato and simple steamed greens.  You can make the filling and stuff the mushrooms ahead of time so all you have to do is stick them in the oven when you get home from work.

Cook’s notes: Other ground meat like beef or chicken can be used in this recipe instead of lamb. Other hardy herbs like rosemary, thyme or dried sage can be used instead of fresh sage leaves. These are great for kids lunch boxes, just remove the nuts. Coconut aminos liquid is made from fermented coconut nectar and is similar in taste to sweet soy sauce. Gluten free Tamari sauce can be used as well.

Ingredients

For the filling

  • ½ medium brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 tsp ghee or butter (coconut oil can be also be used)
  • 10-12 sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp almond flakes or pine nuts, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely diced
  • 250-300 grams lamb mince (0.6 lbs ground lamb)
  • 2/3 tsp sea salt and pepper

For mushrooms

  • About 14-15 medium button mushrooms such as cremini (not too small)
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp macadamia oil or virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos or Tamari sauce
  • Pinch of sea salt

For the glaze

  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • Dollop of ghee or butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 °C/395 °F.
  2. In a medium frying pan, cook onion in butter or ghee for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Add sage leaves and almonds and cook for a further 2 minutes, stirring a few times. Transfer to a bowl with raw lamb mince, garlic, salt and pepper and combine well with your hands until well incorporated.
  3. Remove the mushroom stumps by carefully twisting and pulling. Slice a paper-thin layer from the top of the mushrooms’ heads to make them more stable when sitting upside down. Combine balsamic vinegar with oil, coconut aminos and sea salt. Use a pastry brush or your fingers to coat the mushrooms with the marinade mix.
  4. Fill each mushroom cavity with about a tablespoon of lamb mixture. It should look like a little dome of meat sitting inside a mushroom. Place stuffed mushrooms on a foil or baking paper covered oven tray and transfer to the middle shelf of the oven. Roast for 22-25 minutes at 200 °C/395 °F.
  5. At around 20 minute mark, combine glaze ingredients in a small frying pan or saucepan and heat over medium heat until the liquid starts simmering. Turn the heat off and set aside.
  6. Remove mushrooms from the oven and brush the top of the meat with balsamic glaze before serving. Serve with your favourite vegetable side dish.

  • I love using chorizo to flavour dishes. Pork goes very nicely with prawns and squid and I like the vegetables used in this dish.

  • Marie Rose dressing is a British condiment – mayo and ketchup mixed together To make it paleo friendly I suggest to make your own mayo using olive oil or find a commercial one using olive or worst case sunflower oil, basically avoid canola or soybean as much as possible. This recipe however, calls for yogurt instead. Just use normal full fat variety and instead of ketchup use some tomato paste.

  • This is a bit of a prawn ceviche dish but you could easily grill the prawns after marinating if you’re not sure about eating them raw. Great fibre source salad.

  • Everyone’s favourite meatballs with a difference – no meat! Fresh fish is used, which together with Sicilian herbs and spices creates a light and fresh dish.

  • Make it Paleo: This recipe contains dairy such as butter and cream, both of which are high fat content and low lactose so perhaps you can get away with it. Otherwise you can probably use ghee and no cream, which will make it a bit thinner in consistency but the flavour of the mushrooms will still be amazing. Beef fillet and standard mushrooms can be used instead and you can add some dried porcini mushrooms for that wild forest flavour.

  • You don’t really need to dust the meat with flour as you can thicken the sauce with a little tapioca flour or through evaporation method (aka cook with no lid on for the last hour). Peeled white potatoes are fine in small amounts but feel free to replace with sweet potato, swedes, parsnips or throw in zucchini and cauliflower in the last hour.

  • Use ghee instead of butter if avoiding all dairy (although butter is pretty much fat with hardly any lactose left). Higher-welfare just means free range.

  • Replace 2 spoons of plain flour with 1 tablespoon tapioca flour and add 1 teaspoon of butter or ghee at the end. Cook for a little longer with no lid on to thicken the sauce further.
