Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

If you’re looking for a perfect 4th of July appetizer, look no further! This will please *everyone* at your party (well, except the mushroom-haters!). I made this up in order to have a fun appetizer when my vegan friend came over for dinner recently, and it was a hit! You could also make this non-vegan (but still vegetarian) by subbing goat cheese, since the vegan cheese can be a bit pricey. These are fantastic! Enjoy!

Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms
A Karen original recipe
