Tuck into these cheesy, herby, veg-filled mushrooms for a quick and tasty lunch or a weekend brunch

Ingredients

Mushrooms

2 large, Portobello

Calorie controlled cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Olive Oil

1 teaspoons

Green Pepper(s)

½ medium, finely chopped

Spring Onions

2 medium, thinly sliced

Cherry Tomatoes

10 individual, quartered

Parsley, fresh

1 tablespoons, chopped

Oregano, fresh

1 tablespoons, chopped

Ricotta Cheese

60 g

Vegetarian Parmesan Style Hard Cheese

2 tablespoons, grated

Egg, whole, raw

1 medium, raw, separated

Instructions

  1. Set a medium nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Lightly mist the mushrooms with cooking spray. Cook, stalk side down, for 2 minutes, then turn and cook for a further 2 minutes or until lightly coloured and tender. Transfer to a baking tray, stalk-side up.
  2. In the same frying pan, heat the oil over a medium heat, add the green peppers and cook for 2 minutes. Add the spring onions and tomatoes and fry, stirring, for a further 2 minutes or until soft. Remove from the heat and stir in two-thirds of the parsley and oregano. Season to taste.
  3. Combine the ricotta, cheese and egg yolk in a bowl. In a clean, dry bowl whisk the egg white to soft peaks. Gently fold the egg white into the ricotta mixture.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium- high. Top the mushrooms with the green pepper and vegetables, then spoon over the ricotta mixture. Cook under the grill for 2–3 minutes or until golden and bubbling. Season and sprinkle with the remaining parsley and oregano to serve.

Notes

A balloon whisk is ideal for whisking 1 egg white, but if you’re doubling the recipe, save some arm work and use an electric mixer
