Mushrooms have a typical meaty flavor that is called umami flavor. When combined with cheese, the taste becomes exceptional. Mushrooms are rich in minerals, proteins, Vitamin C and iron. They have antioxidant properties.

Iron deficiency is pretty common the world over, and more so in India. One of the reasons may be that a large number of Indians are either totally vegetarian, or eat vegetarian food most of the time.

There are two types of dietary iron-heme, and non heme. Body easily absorbs iron from the heme source. Heme iron is found in animal foods such as red meat, eggs, fish and seafood. Non heme iron comes mainly from plant source. In order to help our body absorb non heme iron, we must eat it along with good source of Vitamin C.

In this stuffed mushrooms recipe, I have stuffed mushrooms with spicy filling, and baked them in an oven, to get a crunchy topping.

First wash the mushrooms and pat them dry with a kitchen towel. Mushrooms contain lot of water, and we do not want stuffed mushrooms to be soggy. Gently remove stem from the head (cap) of mushrooms. Do not discard the stems. We will use them in the filling.

To prepare filling, finely chop mushroom stems, one small onion, three four cloves of garlic, and one green chili. For seasoning I have used black pepper, mixed dry herbs, and coriander leaves (cilantro). You can also add any other fresh herb of your choice such as parsley, mint or rosemary. Mint and rosemary have strong flavor, so use only a small quantity.

Grate processed cheese or mozzarella, and top the stuffed mushrooms with these. Cheese balances the spicy flavour of the filling.
