Stuffed Mushroom Caps Recipe

What You'll Need


24 extra-large mushrooms

2 cups packed, chopped fresh spinach, drained well

1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs

1 large onion, finely chopped

5 cloves garlic, minced

¼ cup water

3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce

Salt/pepper to taste (optional)


How to Make It


1 Preheat oven to 350. Clean mushrooms, remove stems and set them aside. Place stem side up, on a non-stick or parchment lined baking sheet. Finely chop mushroom stems.

2 Sauté onion and garlic in water in a large pan. Cook, stirring for 2 minutes. Add chopped mushroom stems and cook for 2 more minutes. Add spinach and soy sauce. Cook for another 2 minutes or so, until spinach is wilted.

3 Stir in bread crumbs. Cook over low heat until all of the moisture is absorbed. Season with salt and pepper.

4 Place a small amount of the spinach mixture in each mushroom cap. Repeat until all are filled.

5 Bake, uncovered at 350° for 15-20 minutes.
