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 like to eat raw vegetables at least once a day so I usually make a salad or a vegetable plate for lunch. Here I have raw zucchini and carrot strips tossed with sea salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Fresh spinach and green onions with Omega-3 rich sardines and a little mayo on the side. Also a sprinkle of sesame seeds for extra calcium. Another great paleo meal 👌😃 #paleoforeveryone #rawfoods #paleo #primal #nutrition #fibre #jerf #paleofoodie #eatdrinkpaleo #rejuvenatedforlife
