Cooking For Dummies :Spicy Stuffed Mushrooms

Am The Worst Cook

I can be the worst cook I personally know , I have done so many dumb things and messed up the food I was making , no body dared to touch my plates , not even the eggs I fried. To be honest I lost hope in making good food .

One day my sister walked me through a recipe to make chicken curry and I made some good food and if you scroll down you find my recipe Cooking For Dummies ,Spicy Stuffed Mushrooms

Jump to Recipe
Any one can Cook

Cooking isn’t really that hard , but it kinda is !! I mean the you burn the veggies while frying them , you add too much salt and a little bit of extra flower while the cream is boiling can make every clogy and disgusting .

But you manage somehow and maybe pull it out in the end to a not very bad dish , or actually a good one !! .

its a learning process and you by the third time you gain your own way of cooking , and you own techniques 😎 , am not a master chief ,they still don’t prefer my cooking for our meals , HOWEVER with the simple things my big sister taught me I think I can manage any recipe !!

Believe it or not its almost the same with everything , ALMOST … not really but most mediterranean food is made the same way , ok that not true , but that’s how I cook , and am gonna teach my fellow dummies how to cook , and boost their self esteem because guess what ?! ANY ONE CAN COOK .

Stuffed Mushrooms

I found stuffed mushroom as appetizers in turkey while traveling , I was tempted to try it , since I Love trying food , but it wasn’t really my type , I was expecting more from the dish , and I really thought mushrooms can have more than just spinach and cheese .

I looked up many recipes , I tried making stuffed mushrooms before (blindly because am a curious child and cooking is kinda an experiment and the kitchen is free style laboratory ) and made the biggest mistake in the world by cooking the mushroom first , and looked for combinations that people tried , I basically did a mini research and then asked myself what I want the flavor to be , and lord I would love some creamy spicy potatoes in it !!

And guys , if I can make it , you can make it even better !! it was fun to make and yummy to eat ! if you think this recipe can be better please let me know in the comments and I will try it out !

  • Oven
  • Gas cooker


  • 5 pieces  Portobello Mushrooms
  • 3 cups Bachamel Sauce


  • 4 pieces Red tomatoes
  • 2 pieces Green spicy Chillies
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 4 pieces Potatoes
  • 2 tbsp Tomatoe Paste


  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Red chili powder
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala


  • 1 cup Cilantro
  • 3 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp butter


  • Start by removing the stem from your mushrooms and making space for the stuffing by removing some of the mushroom meat by a spoon  ( CAUTION : be careful not to dig too deep into your mushroom and make a hole )
  • cut the potato into cubes and stir fry them in olive oil until they are half cooked ( TIP : Use a non stick pan , heat the oil before adding the potatoes , and dont leave the potatoes and go somewhere els , dont lose focus )
  • cut the rest of the veggies into small pieces , specially the tomatoes because you are going to make a sauce out of it and you don't want any chunks  ( Tip : poke the tomatoes and choose the readest and most softest of the bundle you have , they are perfect for sauces )
  • start by frying the garlic and the chili pepper until their smell is vibrant , then add the tomatoes into them , stir them every now and then ( be careful not to burn them i tend to do that alot !! )
  • Add the spices when the tomatoes start looking mushy , stir them for some time more and then cover them with a led for five minutes till the tomatoes are like a paste
  • After the five minutes are over add tomatoe paste and stir a bit more till it homogenises
  • Add the potatoes and stir them till they are fully cooked ( Tip : Poke the potatoes to now if they are done or not )
  • sweep a butter cube over the oven tray , place the mushrooms and stuff them with spicy potatoes , and then pour the bĂ©chamel sauce over them until they are full
  • top the mushrooms with mozzarella cheese and place in the oven for 15 minutes on full duty


the oven I used is the type you lit on , so you cannot really control the temperature much , but it was pretty hot , so I believe if you place in the oven on max for 10-15 minutes it should be enough , or until the sauce has become thick and the mushroom a bit sloppy ( cooked )
