‘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. vegan 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.
