The best kind of mushrooms to use for this recipe are baby bella or white mushrooms. They have the best cap shape and have the ability to hold a stuffing mixture. Once you pick up your mushrooms, wipe them with a damp paper towel or dish cloth. Don’t run them under water because they already have a lot of moisture in them and you don’t want them to absorb any more liquid.

These stuffed mushrooms are vegan as is if you use breadcrumbs that do not have any parmesan cheese in them, but other vegan swaps you could make include skipping the vegetarian meat crumbles, and using a different protein like white navy beans, crumbled tofu, sauteed seitan or vegan sausage instead.
