Soy Bacon and ‘Cream Cheese’ Stuffed Mushrooms

I’m obviously on a comfort food kick these days. Thursday’s post featured fried jalapeño poppers, and today I’m going with soy cream cheese and “bacon” stuffed mushrooms. I guess that’s what football season will do to you.


This recipe is a very straightforward veganized version of a very popular recipe on All Recipes. The only difference is that I threw vegan bacon pieces into my soy cream cheese mixture—oh, and that I used soy cream cheese rather than a dairy product.

You can get fancy and use tempeh bacon or something similar, but I chose to use Bac-Os (yes, they’re vegan), and it was delicious.


Soy Bacon and ‘Cream Cheese’ Stuffed Mushrooms

12 whole fresh mushrooms
1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
8 oz. vegan cream cheese
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
2 Tbsp. soy bacon bits

•Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

•Clean the mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Carefully break off the stems and chop them extremely fine, discarding the tough ends.

•Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and mushroom stems and sauté until soft, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool in a small bowl.

•When the garlic mixture has cooled, add the “cream cheese,” pepper, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and soy bacon bits and stir until blended.

•Fill each mushroom cap with a generous amount of stuffing. Arrange the mushroom caps on the prepared cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

    Simply DELICIOUS! I made it with soy hamburger instead bac-os and were amazing, even for the 100% carnivores in my family
