The best appetizer ever: Daiya Vegan Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Caps. A quick, easy, vegan, gluten-free, and delicious treat.

Ingredients for the best ever Daiya Vegan Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Caps 

  • 600 g small cremini mushrooms
  • 227 g Chive and Onion Daiya cream spread
  • 341 ml Asparagus tips
  • 87 ml tin artichoke hearts
  • 5 ml of lemon juice
  • 5 ml fresh crushed garlic (or more to taste)
  • 2.5 ml onion powder
  • Panko breadcrumbs for topping (Panko is not gluten-free, but it is nearly always vegan)
Daiya Vegan Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushroom Caps


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Remove stems from mushrooms and wipe mushroom caps clean and dry
  3. Place on a cooling rack in a baking cookie pan.
  4. Drain the asparagus and artichoke from all excess fluid. Ensure that no liquid is trapped inside the artichoke hearts. It is best to give it a slice squeeze to get rid of the liquid.
  5. Place it on a chopping board and slice it into slivers or smaller chunks.
  6. Mix all the other ingredients together and then gently fold in the artichoke and asparagus mixture
  7. Scoop a teaspoon or so of this mixture and fill the caps. You should heap it up, do not skimp on the mixture, as you will have plenty and some left.
  8. Pour Panko crumbs into a small container
  9. Take the cap with the filling and turn it upside down press it down lightly to ensure that the filling is covered with crumbs.
  10. Return it back to the wire rack
  11. Place it in the oven for 15-18 minutes
  12. If you prefer, feel free to broil it slightly for a few minutes
  13. Do not overcook it. I prefer the mushroom still to be solid (it should NOT be soggy.
  14. Serve as a tasty vegan appetizer.

To enjoy this gluten-free – omit the Panko breadcrumbs or make your own Gluten-free breadcrumbs as follows

Perhaps the best gluten-free bread crumb substitute is using gluten-free bread. We can all agree that gluten-free bread is on the dry side, but for breadcrumbs that will come in handy. Toast enough GF bread slices, let them cool down, and then blend them in a blender or food processor to resemble coarse breadcrumbs.

  1. Stuffed mushrooms are one of the best things ever! I have made them many times and in many ways – with different cheese, with meat (chicken), sea products, etc. And however I made them, they always were really good! Easy, fast and tasty!
