Goats’ cheese, spring onion and garlic stuffed mushrooms

November 16, 2015

Goat’s cheese, spring onion and garlic stuffed mushrooms are really easy to make. They are perfect for a starter.

Everyone has a favourite ingredient that they love to use time and again. If I had to pick I would have several on my list, but two of my favourite ingredients must be mushrooms and goats’ cheese.

Mushrooms are so versatile; you can add them to everything. They are also great for starters, garlic mushrooms are a classic starter. Goats’ cheese is a lovely creamy cheese which works brilliantly in lots of recipes.

Recently I came across the large portabello mushrooms on special offer. These are great for making stuffed mushrooms as a starter or a side dish. As St Helen’s Farm had recently sent me a hamper of their goats’ cheese and other products to try out, it seemed like a great opportunity to combine two of my favourite ingredients and make some goats’ cheese, spring onion and garlic stuffed mushrooms.

St Helen’s Farm Products

St Helen’s Farm  does a great range of products and also a range of recipes on their site . They provide goats’ milk in cartons of whole, skimmed or semi-skimmed. Goats’ milk is lower in lactose and easier to digest than cows’ milk as well as being lower in cholesterol which makes it a healthy option. I love the taste, to me it tastes creamier and it is perfect for using in rice pudding. The milk cartons have case studies on the side which feature experiences from people who have changed to using goats’ milk and the benefits they have seen.

St Helen's FarmThere is a range of goats’ milk yoghurt provided by St Helen’s Farm. I love the natural yoghurt which is great for eating straight from the pot or using in recipes. Even better there is also a fat free variant. There are also flavoured yoghurt’s, blossom honey and twin packs of raspberry and elderflower and Sicilian lemon. My son informed me these were delicious.

St Helen's FarmSt Helen’s Farm also have a range of cheese, mild, mature and spreadable goats’ cheese. The cheese comes in blocks and can be easily grated or sliced for sandwiches. The cheese is very tasty with a mild and creamy taste. I chose to use the mature cheese in my goats’ cheese, spring onion and garlic stuffed mushrooms recipe.

The mushrooms themselves are really easy to make. Preheat the oven to 200C then take the mushrooms and place them on a baking tray. Remove the stems. Drizzle some olive oil over them and season with salt and pepper. Place them in the oven for around 15 minutes until they are soft.

While they are cooking prepare the stuffing. Crush a clove of garlic, chop a couple of spring onions and grate some goats’ cheese. Mix these together and add them to the centre of the mushrooms. Put back in the oven until the cheese has melted. These make a quick and easy starter which also looks impressive. They can also be served as an impressive looking side dish.

    Delicious starter! I love goat’s cheese. Just yesterday served a big cheese platter to our guests which included 2 different goat’s cheeses among the others. They went first. Just proves how tasty they are.

  2. Mmm I love goat’s cheese, great combo with the mushrooms

  3. Goats cheese is my favourite cheese, by far, and I love it in stuffed mushrooms too. it’s such a comforting veggie meal.

  4. I’ve just hopped over from Emily’s recipe of the week round-up and love the look of these! Stuffed mushrooms are always a win but I love the filling you’ve used – goats cheese makes almost everything better. I’ve never seen spreadable goats cheese before so must try to check that out 🙂
