Mediterranean Hummus Stuffed Mushrooms by Alison's AllspiceNext week, on May 13th, is National Hummus Day!  To celebrate, Sabra Hummus is challenging recipe redux bloggers to make appetizers using hummus!  I for one am very excited about this challenge because I LOVE hummus.  Today, I am sharing my Mediterranean Hummus stuffed Mushrooms using Sabra’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.

Variations to the Mediterranean Hummus Stuffed Mushrooms recipe:

  1. To make these vegan, simply leave out the feta cheese.  The hummus is so creamy, you won’t be missing a thing!
  2. I used kalamata olives to garnish my mushrooms.  If you don’t like olives, try a chunk of sun-dried tomato or roasted red pepper.
  3. I love mushrooms, but this filling could also be stuffed into mini peppers, or fresh campari tomatoes.
  4. Choose any flavor of hummus that you enjoy.  Garlic or pine nut hummus would also be a great options.

Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: Mediterranean
Serves: ~ 10 appetizer servings
Ingredients
  • 1 lb portabella mushroom caps (about 20 small)
  • 5 oz Sabra Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (1/2 the container)
  • ¼ cup diced sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup feta cheese crumbles
  • 10 kalamata olives, pitted and sliced in half
  • 20 parsley leaves, from 6-7 stems
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Wash the mushrooms and remove the stems from all the mushrooms. I leave the gills intact.
  3. Mix together the hummus, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, and feta cheese.
  4. Spoon the hummus mixture into the center of all the mushrooms.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms have started to release their moisture. (I baked on a parchment lined baking sheet.)
  6. When cool enough to handle, top each mushroom with a parsley leaf, and an olive half.
  7. Arrange on a platter and serve as an appetizer.
