Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

Simply Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

2 WWPP Posted by 7 years ago 38 Comments

This is another one that’s going to make mom laugh. Besides onion that, as a child, I despised and now can’t live without mushrooms were a close second for most hated veggie. Yet again my mom was right, they are GOOD! especially stuffed! (and in eggs. Yes, I actually had mushrooms twice today.)

For some reason I bought an 8 oz package of mushrooms last weekend. I had no idea what I was going to do with them but they looked so darn good! This morning I decided I better use them before I was forced to throw them out. Especially considering this weekend is so jam packed with events I’ll never have time to cook.

So I came up with a stuffed mushroom idea. I wanted something light and tasty using what I had on hand. I have to admit, I hit the nail on the head. They were awesome! I didn’t even offer any to the husband in fears he would actually want to try one. :~P

I’m also excited as this is my first recipe to receive 5 out of 5 stars for weight loss and optimal health on NutritionData.com.

Not too shabby for a quick mid day invention! :~PSimply Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

  • 8 oz package of white button mushrooms
  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 4 cups of baby spinach leaves chopped
  • 2 tbsp (10g) parmesan, shredded
  • Kosher Salt & Pepper
  • Olive Oil cooking spray

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees

Clean the mushrooms and remove stems. Mince the stems and set aside as they will be part of your stuffing.

Mince the garlic.

Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray. Add the minced garlic and mushroom stems. Sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. While cooking, chop the spinach, you don’t want large pieces or stems.

Add the spinach to the skillet a little at a time and cook down sprinkling a bit more salt and pepper.

Remove filling from heat. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. Stuff the mushrooms with the spinach mixture. Really jam it in there you just have more then enough.

Top with parmesan cheese and bake for about 20 minutes!

    Mmmm. I love me some mushrooms! And, I have this really, really unhealthy but delicious recipe for stuffed mushrooms that uses cream cheese and pork sausage. I wonder if this could be a replacement for that? Might be worth a try! Thanks! Reply

    OMG.....these are absolutely fabulous, Roni! I am eating them right now!!! I have a daughter-in-law who loves stuffed mushrooms, and...for Christmas when my sons' families come to my house, we always do hors-doevres. THESE are definitely going to be on the list!....although I'll have to double or triple the recipe, because I'll be eating one recipe by myself. Reply

    Oh and Roni.....new Aldi's food find (when i went Friday after work to get mushrooms, spinach and parmasen cheese--how 'bout those shreaded cheese varieties in the pint cartons?!?)....Parkview Snack Bites - Turkey Sausage. It's an 8 oz. package of little 1" sausage bites and 6 pieces are 60 cal/3 g fat/0g fiber....that would be 1 point, wouldn't it? I found them right after I walked in the door...on the right. I imagine most Aldi's are stocked the same. I cut little rounds yesterday and put them in my Aldi's brand eggbeaters/sausage/mushroom/tomato/onion/pepper/FFcheese omelet. YUM! Reply

    Just wanted you to know, Roni, that I love these mushrooms! I have made them several times and devour them within a day or two. PW's having a contest over on PW Cooks, and I entered your recipe as the "online recipe I've used recently". Love your site! Courtney Reply

    These sound good, but I am going to try adding some turkey italian sausage and making them for dinner, so I will be making more also. I am trying to incorporate a little protein in everything that I make because I find I stay satisfied for much longer. Thanks for the recipe. Reply

    Sounds so yummy. I am going to add these to our dieting list for sides. 130 calories is awesome especially as a side to our Southwest Steak tonight. I was looking for a great mushroom recipe and I think I found it! :-D Thanks for the yummy recipe. One thing I might add to this is to sprinkle some pepper and garlic powder on the mushrooms themselves to give it a bit more spice. Hope you don't mind :D Thanks again :D Reply
