Stuffed mushrooms with creamed spinach and nut filling

Most party foods, especially appetizers, end up being rich and greasy. This is a great option for someone looking for a healthy appetizer that would be a definite party hit. Well, it does take a while to prepare, but the results are well worth the labor!



Ingredients:

large mushrooms - 30 (stems removed)
bread crumbs - 1/4 cups
olive oil - 3 tbsp (for brushing)
broken cashews - 2 tbsp (roasted)
creamed spinach - 1/2 cup (refer link for recipe)
salt to taste

Ingredients for creamed spinach filling:

spinach - 5 oz (about 150 grams)
cream cheese - 2 oz
mozzarella cheese - 2 tbsp
parmesan cheese - 1/4 cup
cayenne pepper - 1/2 tsp

Method:

Add a little salt to the olive oil. Brush mushrooms with the salted oil. Bake in preheated oven at 375 degrees (Fahrenheit) for 10 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the creamed spinach (refer link for receipe). Stir the bread crumbs into the creamed spinach. Drain any excess liquid from the baked mushrooms. Arrange the mushroom cups on a baking tray and fill them with some roasted broken cashews, followed by the spinach mixture. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and bake for 15 more minutes, or until golden brown.

Notes:
Any nut of choice can be used.

    Stuffed mushrooms are almost always delicious. Your stuffing sounds really delicious. We usually do chopped up soya chunks - this sounds much more rich - yum!
