Stuffed mushrooms are an uncomplicated dish, perfect when served as a side dish. The filling that goes in the mushroom caps can be more or less varied. Popular fillings may contain bacon, minced meat, cheese such as Parmesan, cream cheese, feta or vegetables. A vegetable that goes perfectly with mushrooms is spinach and the following recipe is for such spinach stuffed mushrooms.
I start preparing the stuffed mushrooms by cleaning the mushrooms – I do not wash them, only clean them with a paper towel. One by one, I remove the legs, cut them and add them to the filling along with the spinach, and at a later stage also the cheese. I fill the mushroom hats with the filling, then bake them. After the mushrooms are baked, I serve them by themselves or with an addition such as arugula or lamb’s lettuce.
