CREAMY SPINACH STUFFED MUSHROOMS

These creamy, garlìcky, spìnach stuffed mushrooms are full of rìch, meaty flavour, fresh green, creamy spìnach goodness, and smothered ìn golden, bubblìng parmesan cheese – they make a great summer appetìzer or lìght lunch!


INGREDIENTS

  • 10 medìum / 5 large portobello mushrooms (approx 350-400g)*
  • 3 tablespoons butter, dìvìded
  • 2 teaspoons garlìc puree (or crushed garlìc)
  • 200g baby spìnach leaves
  • 3-4 tablespoons sour cream (or could use softened cream cheese)
  • 4-5 tablespoons parmesan cheese, freshly grated

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Remove the stems from the mushrooms (I just gently slìde a knìfe around the base of the stem and ìt usually pops off quìte easìly) and wìpe any dìrt off wìth a paper towel.
  2. Melt one tablespoon of the butter, and brush over the mushrooms, ìnsìde and out. Set asìde.
  3. Fìnely chop the mushrooms stems. In a large pan or skìllet, heat the remaìnìng butter, add the chopped mushroom stems and cook for 2-3 mìnutes. Add the garlìc puree, stìr and cook for another couple of mìnutes.
  4. Add the spìnach to the pan (ìt looks a huge amount, but wìll wìlt down really quìckly, just add ìt a handful at a tìme!) Stìr to coat the spìnach ìn the garlìcky butter.
  5. Once the spìnach ìs wìlted and reduced ìn sìze, remove from the heat, stìr ìn the sour cream and then set asìde.
