Stuffed Mushrooms

Another delicious lunch, synfree if you are following Slimming World, that is very quick and easy to prepare.  My toddler loved this, and my 13yo asked me to make it for her as an after school snack.

I purchased the mushrooms on offer at the supermarket and was able to get 4 large flat mushrooms for 50p, and used fresh herbs from our garden, so this is a thrifty and delicious meal.  I used my very fine microplane grater to great the hard cheese, it makes a small amount of cheese go much further.

Stuffed Mushrooms - serves 2

4 large flat mushrooms
8 Tblsp quark
2 Tblsp finely chopped fresh chives
1 Tblsp finely chopped fresh parsley
1 clove garlic, crushed/minced
30g parmesan cheese, very finely grated

Preheat your oven grill to medium.  Place the mushrooms on a lined oven tray and grill, face down/cap side up, for about 5 - 7 minutes.  Whilst the mushrooms are grilling, mix the quark, herbs and garlic together.  Take the mushrooms out of the oven, turn up the grill temperature to high and flip the mushrooms over so they are right way up.  Carefully divide the topping between the 4 mushrooms and sprinkle the grated cheese on top.  Grill for a further 5 - 7 minutes until the cheese has melted and the topping heated through.  I served these mushrooms on a bed of wilted spinach.
