Amazing Stuffed Mushrooms

September 4, 2009 at 7:56 am 21 comments

I made these yummy stuffed mushrooms for dinner last night. They are very easy, healthy, and hubby actually requests them (he never requests the healthy foods!).

Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms

1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cups fresh spinach, chopped (the smaller the chopping, the better!)
1/2 teaspoon crushed garlic
3/4 cup cooked whole-wheat couscous
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup crushed tomatoes in olive oil with italian spices
4 large portabello mushrooms, stems and gills removed

Heat oven to 450*. Spray a baking pan with cooking spray and place mushrooms in it, tops down. In a large skillet coated with olive oil-flavored cooking spray, over medium  heat, cook onions, garlic, and thyme until onions are tender. Add spinach, cook for 1 minute or until wilted. Remove from heat; stir in couscous, Parmesan cheese and tomatoes. Mound mixture into mushrooms. Lightly coat with cooking spray and bake 15 minutes. Makes 4 servings.


These are amazing! I served them with some smoked sausage, a plum, and some Cabot reduced fat cheddar cheese. So good!

    HI ! I just stopped by your blog via Iowa Girl Eats. I only got to read a couple posts because if I don’t stop reading food blogs I will not get to the gym this morning!
    I liked the idea of a fitness bucket list! I may have to try that for inspriation and to set more fitness goals! Thanks for posting that!

    Thanks for the tasty idea! At our house we are constantly exploring new food choices. Stuffed mushrooms are a delight but the couscous is a great little twist I hadn’t thought of before.

    it all looks great. preparing next week!

    Your story really inspires me. I’ve also struggled with keeping myself healthy and in-shape while balancing the fact that I am a real foodie who could eat all day (if someone let me). Enjoy your travels and that awesome marathon you’re going to run!

    You have me drooling!! I always have liked Portobellos since the first time I’ve tried them, and just can’t get enough. 🙂

    I just came across your blog and I can’t wait to try this recipe. My boyfriend loves stuffed mushrooms, and I have a lot of couscous that I need to start using, so this recipe is perfect.

    Wow looks amazing! Might have a glass of textured white wine like viognier perhaps or a crisp style Chard might work too. Cheers!

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!
