Stuffed Mushrooms

  • Level: Intermediate
  • Yield: 4 to 6 servings
  • Total: 35 min
  • Active: 30 min


2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

12 large white mushrooms, brushed clean, stems removed and reserved 

1/2 cup baby spinach, finely chopped 

1/2 onion, minced 

2 cloves garlic, chopped 

1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, finely chopped 

2 tablespoons flat-leaf parsley, chopped 

1/8 teaspoon salt, plus additional for sprinkling on mushroom caps 

Pinch freshly ground black pepper 

3 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano cheese 

3 tablespoons panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) 


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Brush a baking sheet with 1 teaspoon of the oil.
  2. Finely chop the mushroom stems and set aside. Place the mushroom caps on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the mushroom stems, spinach, onion, and garlic and saute until the spinach wilts, about 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes more. Turn off the heat and stir in the parsley, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons each of the pecorino and panko.
  4. Preheat the broiler. Divide the spinach mixture evenly among the mushroom caps. Sprinkle each with the remaining 1 tablespoon pecorino and panko, then broil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm.

To Nanette H....if you watched the episode, Valarie did wipe out the excess moisture from the inside of the mushrooms before stuffing them.
