Garlic stuffed mushrooms are one of my favourite starters to have whenever I go out to dinner, I have to get them if they’re on the menu!

I topped my big portobello mushrooms with a classic and DELICIOUS combo – ham and cheese! It’s a combination I really missed when I went vegetarian, and I’m so happy I can enjoy it again now I’m vegan.

They’re so easy to make, anyone can rustle these up in just a half hour.

You can enjoy them as a starter, as part of a main meal, or you could top some smaller mushrooms and serve them as part of a dinner party canapΓ© platter πŸ™‚

I used Quorn’s vegan ham slices – when I first tried them I was amazed how much they taste like the ‘real’ thing! You can find them in most supermarkets now which is great.

I used Violife’s mozzarella flavour block as it has a really subtle flavour which isn’t too strong, and IT MELTS! When I first went vegan, I really struggled to find a good cheese replacement, the first one I tried was disgusting as you could really taste the coconut and the smell was foul. It put me off my search for a while, but then I discovered Violife! For anyone who wants to try vegan cheese for the first time, I would definitely recommend it, along with Follow Your Heart’s range.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
