Recipe - Pesto Mushrooms

This recipe comes from the Seriously Satisfying Cookbook from Weight Watchers..

What you need..
4oz/110g of large field mushrooms
1oz/25g of goats cheese
1/2oz/15g of breadcrumbs

For the pesto
1/2oz/15g pine nut kernels
1/2oz/15g chopped flat leaf parsley
1/2oz/15g parmensan cheese roughly chopped
1 clove of garlic crushed

To make the pesto -
1 • Dry fry the pine nuts until golden
2 • Put all the ingredients in a food processor and blend to a rough paste
3 • Done!

To assemble the mushrooms...

1 - Spray both sides of your mushys with 0 calorie oil

2 - Spread with pesto and goats cheese... I made my own pesto but most of the fresh ready-mades are the same ProPoints, do check though... I know the Jamie Oliver pesto, in the jars, is the same.

3 - Sprinkle with breadcrumbs, I used Hale & Hearty Gluten Free bread crumbs, they are very finely ground and make the topping extra crunchy! Thanks to Ciara my gluten free gal pal...

Tip - to get the topping really crunchy use day old bread and shred it finely...

4 - In the recipe they are done on the grill but I put mine in the oven @200˚ for approx 10 mins - Keep your eye on them!

5 - DONE!

This recipe is 8 ProPoints per serving, serve it with a salad for lunch or dinner and its very filling! Add 40g of pasta and its an extra 4 PP for a filling dinner ... yummy!


  1. Oh that looks delicious. Can't wait to have my kitchen fitted so I can start making 'proper' meals.

  2. I can testify that they taste scrumptious (and I don't really like mushrooms!).
    And kudos Ms. Skinny Doll for catering for "special", aka gluten free, people like me yet still producing something healthy and tasty. Gives me hope :)

  3. Omg YUM!!! I love mushrooms - great recipe! x
