Stuffed Mushrooms

 For some reasons I hate eating mushrooms. I always read about the health benefits of them and keep on saying to myself, I should eat this next time. Believe me next time never came till today or should I say would never come. Now you must be wondering why did I make this recipe ?? I cook mushrooms at-least once a week because my hubby just loves them. I always make as a curry, served with rice or roti.
This is my first attempt towards this appetizer and got compliments from my neighbors too.

Ingredients
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced
1/2 cup onion, minced
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp coriander powder
1/4 cup bread crumbs, plain
8-10 large mushroom 
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese,shredded
paprika to taste
salt to taste
1 tbsp olive oil
Fresh corainder to granish
Cooking spray [ Optional ]
Method
Preheat oven to 350F
Remove the stems of mushroom and using a melon baller,scoop out just inside. Make sure you don't tear the mushroom cap.
Put the mushrooms on a cooking sheet lined with Aluminium foil. Dont throw away the stems of mushroom, chop them fine and we can use it in the stuffing.
For the stuffing: 
In a skillet, add olive oil. Saute garlic and onions till onions turn golden brown. 
Add in mushroom stems , salt, Italian seasioning, corainder powder,paprika. 
Add in 1/4 cup water [ Vegtable broth ] and let it cook till mushrooms turn soft
At this point mix in bread crumbs and shredded chesse and stir in all together.

Stuff each mushroom cap with the filling. Spray some cooking oil and bake them for 15-20 minutes or till Mushrooms turn brown

Note: Never clean mushrooms in water as they soak water and you will just ruin them. Use a dry paper towel to clean mushrooms.
