½ link Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo
6 extra large stuffing mushrooms (about 3 inches wide)
1/3 cup carrots, chopped (2-3 carrots)
¼ cup parsley, chopped
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 shallot, sliced
3 tbsp olive oil plus more for brushing
**2-3 tbsp water (you may or may not need this)
- Complete prep work by chopping carrots and parsley. Slice shallot. Heat 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Sauté carrots for 5 minutes on low- medium heat until tender. Remove chorizo from casing into the pan. Gently break it up and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes. Add sliced shallots and parsley, cooking until shallots have softened (about 3 minutes). Add parsley and breadcrumbs, toss to combine. Add water if needed. Allow mixture to cool before moving to next step.
- Remove stems from mushrooms. Brush each mushroom with olive oil on all sides. Divide chorizo mixture into 6 sections in the pan. Spoon separated amount of mixture into each mushroom, packing the mixture inside. End with a final small spoonful of chorizo mixture on top to create a dome. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes.
