Gastronomically speaking, there are only two types of people in this world – vegetarians and non-vegetarians! I don’t subscribe to the concept of ‘eggetarians’ – eggs are just as much non-vegetarian as chickens! Don’t get me wrong though – I have nothing against any class of people; I am just telling you about this classification since ‘veg’ or ‘non-veg’, as they are endearingly called in India, is the first question you would be asked when you walk into any eatery in India, and hence it’s important to know which category do you belong to.
What am I, you ask? I am an all-out non-vegetarian, although I do enjoy veg dishes equally – I am agnostic when it comes to good food! But sometimes when I am entertaining people, I do have a mix of both types of people joining us, and hence I need to be careful of both sides of the spectrum. Moreover, since my husband & I are non-vegetarians, we don’t usually like all vegetables, but one thing that we are extremely fond of is the good old mushroom! Boil them, Oil them or bake them – they come in different varieties, and go with almost anything. Keeping that in mind, here’s a dish that celebrates the versatility of mushrooms – Cheese stuffed mushrooms !
While I have been taking immense pride in the non vegetarian appetisers I make, I must admit I haven’t put much efforts to develop my vegetarian appetisers list much. That partly could be attributed to the non-vegetarian loving friends I always had and also because I never had a rocking starter like this before and (also this vegan glutenfree spinach-quinoa-patties too)! I proudly can say now that the next time one of you comes over to a party at my place, you will chose this vegetarian starter over everything else first!

How to wash mushrooms?
1. Gently give a quick rinse to mushrooms with lukewarm water and salt and carefully use your fingers to remove any dirt or impediments. Do not rub them too hard or they might break.
2. Dab the mushrooms gently with a paper towel to make them dry and remove the water.
3. DO NOT soak mushrooms in water for long or they will absorb more water and the taste will be affected.
What cheese can you stuff mushroom with?
Practically all kind of easy to melt cheese like Cheddar, Cream cheese, Parmesan, Goat cheese etc. In this recipe I have used Cheddar cheese.
