Walnut and Cranberry Stuffed Holiday Mushrooms

Ingredients

1 pound large cremini mushrooms or small portobello mushrooms (stemmed, 16 ounces, about 12 mushrooms with a 2-inch diameter)

1 ¼ cups raw walnut pieces, divided

2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled

1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

½ cup finely diced shallots (about 2 medium shallots)

2 Tbsp. finely chopped sage leaves

2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary

¼ teaspoon dried thyme

¼ teaspoon plus ⅛ teaspoon sea salt, divided, plus more to taste

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

⅓ cup dried cranberries, finely chopped

1 teaspoon sherry vinegar

1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes (for the walnut "parmesan")

¼ cup flat-leaf parsley, stemmed and finely chopped (optional)

 

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Use a small spoon to gently scrape away the gills from each mushroom.
  3. Add 1 cup of the walnuts and the garlic to a small food processor and pulse 15 to 20 times, or until very finely chopped or coarsely minced.
  4. Heat a large sauté pan over medium-low heat and add the olive oil, walnut mixture, shallots, sage, rosemary, thyme, ¼ teaspoon of the sea salt, and black pepper, and continue to cook for 5 minutes, or until the shallots soften and the walnuts are lightly toasted, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in the cranberries and sherry vinegar. Taste and season with more sea salt and black pepper, if desired.
  5. Prepare the walnut "parmesan" topping (if using). Add remaining ¼ cup walnuts and ⅛ teaspoon sea salt to a small food processor along with the nutritional yeast flakes. Process for 20 seconds, or until the mixture resembles finely grated parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  6. One at a time, pick up each mushroom and use a small spoon to fill it with warm walnut mixture. Use the back of the spoon to gently compact the mixture into the mushroom cap and transfer to the lined baking tray. Repeat, stuffing all of the mushrooms. Sprinkle the top of each mushroom with a generous pinch of the walnut "parmesan" (if using). (You'll have quite a bit of leftover parmesan that you can use to garnish before serving.)
  7. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and the top of the filling is golden brown.
  8. If desired, garnish the mushrooms with another pinch of parmesan and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
