Use a teaspoon to remove enough of the inside of the mushroom cap to create a cavity for stuffing. Put the cap in a small bowl, sprinkle with the tamari, and turn several times until the cap is evenly coated. Let marinate for 5 to 30 minutes. Blot dry with a paper towel to remove any excess tamari. Put the mushroom cap on a plate, with the inside of the cap facing up. Stuff with the pâte and garnish with the parsley. Serve immediately.

Stuffed Mushroom Appetizers: Replace the portobello mushroom with 8 cremini or button mushrooms and use an additional 1/2 teaspoon of tamari. Stuff each with 1 1/2 teaspoons of pâte.
