Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

Spinach Stuffed Mushroom

I tried stuffed mushroom for the first time at an Italian restaurant but really did not enjoy them at all. I think it's may be due to lot of cheese on them. But my hubby liked them so I  want to give them a try at home. I can tell only one or two words about these stuffed mushrooms : Juicy and yummy......  We love them. 
Preparing stuffed mushroom is very simple. Today I am stuffing mushrooms with spinach mixture. If you are making them for kids avoid using  chilli flakes and using the amount of cheese is up to  your own preference and we can completely avoid cheese. 

Remove stems carefully from the mushroom caps and sprinkle little salt.

Chop spinach, mushroom stems, onion and garlic.

Heat Oil in a pan and fry garlic and onion.

Add Spinach and mushroom steams and cook till they are done.

Sprinkle salt, chilli flakes and pepper.Mix well and let it Cool.

Stuff the spinach mixture into mushroom caps and put grated cheese on them and bake in preheated oven at 400 degree F for 15 Minutes.
