Watch me make these Veggie Stuffed Mushrooms:
This is my sister Susie’s Recipe for Veggie Stuffed Mushrooms.
I ran around behind her and caught some pics on the fly. I wrote down the instructions and ingredient list as she moved from place to place. It was worth it. These are so good.

Susie’s Veggie Stuffed Mushrooms and Spinach Chip Dip recipe:
These easy stuffed Mushrooms make great finger food at a party. Just set them out on a tray and watch them disappear.
Remove the stems from the mushrooms. I suggest also slicing a very slim bottom off of each top – giving it a flat surface so when they’re stuffed, they don’t tip over.
Dice up the mushroom stems, onions and garlic
Saute’ the onions and mushroom tidbits in butter or olive oil until brown and soft, about five minutes.
Here’s our Filling ingredient list:
- Diced spinach leaves
- Diced red bell pepper
- Sautéd onions, garlic, stems
- Salt and Pepper
- Cream Cheese
- Parmesan Cheese
- Feta Cheese
Stuff the mushrooms – if you find your mushrooms falling over, (a problem with the crimini mushrooms due to their round heads), slice a thin piece off the bottom of the mushroom to make a flat surface. Sprinkle freshly grated parmesan cheese over the stuffing.
- Stuff the mushrooms.
- Arrange the stuffed mushrooms on your baking sheet. I recommend oiling your baking sheet with oil or lining it with a silicone mat.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes at 450ºF until the mushrooms are slightly browned
Arrange the baked mushrooms on your serving platter. Enjoy!
With 13 large Crimini mushrooms, there is quite a bit of stuffing/dip leftover. It is delicious and will disappear FAST so I suggest doubling the recipe for a party.
I made this recipe twice since last year. This time I created the stuffed Portabello mushroom recipes version.
Chock full of fresh veggies and a savory mix of cheeses. These appetizers please a crowd!These portabellas are HUGE! So they are a bit big for finger food at a party. They do make a lovely side dish for a grilled steak though.
I used a dozen Portabellas. The portabella mushrooms are so large they will need the entire filling recipe. So definitely double the recipe if you want some on the side for a cracker dip.
As you can see these are almost a light meal in themselves.
Our party goers demolished these lovely stuffed mushrooms for vegetarians with the delicious spinach mixture. We highly recommend this recipe for a large group event.
This easy appetizer has a large appeal for special dieters too. This vegetarian stuffed mushroom recipe is gluten free and low carb.
