Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms


spinach stuffed mushrooms

These gooey, bubbling, spinach stuffed mushrooms have a decadent profile, but are far more healthy than many of their non-vegan versions. A fun, prep-ahead hors d’oeuvre, I also enjoyed a few of these for lunch alongside a salad. Be sure to use mushrooms like criminis or white button varieties that are slightly flat on top, so that when you stuff them, they will sit nicely in the baking pan. You may also try another leafy green such as chard or kale in place of the spinach. For additional crunch in these spinach stuffed mushrooms, sprinkle the tops with breadcrumbs.

  1. Spinach and mushrooms are two of my favorite things! This looks so good!

  2. Spinach-stuffed caps are my go-to when heading to visit a friend and your recipe sounds so tasty! Crimini mushrooms add so much flavour…mmmm. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m going to a healthy potluck gathering with some girlfriends tomorrow and 2 of them don’t eat dairy, wheat, flour, corn or sugar. This recipe not only looks really yummy, but seems to meet their dietary requirements.
    Where can I find the non-dairy cream cheese?

    • Hi Sylvia, I’m so glad you like the recipe and thanks for your question. Some traditional grocery stores, as well as natural foods stores, and Whole Foods carry non-dairy cream cheese. The one I often get is called Tofutti. Also, look for the Follow Your Heart brand which makes a non-dairy cream cheese. I have found it either in the dairy section, and/or near the tofu. In addition, Trader Joe’s carries their own brand of non-dairy cream cheese which they call ‘non-dairy spread’ that can be found in their cheese case. Enjoy your potluck!

    Hi! I was wondering if the dry white wine was necessary? Does it taste fine without it?

  5. I didn’t have dry white wine, so I searched the web for suitable substitutes. I used red wine vinegar, which was very strong but quite delicious. I also used 1/8 cup of crushed red pepper instead of 1/4 cup of diced or minced red pepper. I love spicy food, but it’s still very spicy. The filling tastes delicious though; now I just have to wait for the mushrooms to come out of the oven!

    Hi Sara, I made these for a Super Bowl party – and they were a hit. Really delicious! The only change I made was substituting vegetable broth for the wine. Thanks so much for a great recipe that I’ll make again (and again!.

    • Valerie, Thank you so much for letting me know! That’s wonderful to hear. I think the vegetable broth sounds like a great substitute for the wine. I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe and hope you had a great Superbowl Sunday! :-)

    Re: Spinach stuffed mushroom Appetizer:
    Is it possible to make the stuffing a day ahead?

  8. Made these for my thanksgiving celebration. They were a hit even among the murderers. (non-vegans)

  9. DELICIOUS! I admit, the stuffing looked kinda green and under-appetizing(kinda like baby food), but they tasted so great! I used Sriracha instead of cayenne and since I am vegetarian but not vegan, I used cream cheese and topped each mushroom with freshly grated parmesan about 10 minutes before taking them out of the oven.Thanks!
