Spinach & Feta-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms


These stuffed portobello mushrooms have a filling inspired by the Greek spinach pie, spanakopita. To keep them quick, we ditched the phyllo, so they're great for an easy weeknight vegetarian dinner.

1 mushroom


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese, plus 1 tablespoon

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • teaspoon salt

  • 4 medium portobello mushrooms, stems and gills removed (see Tip)

  • Crushed red pepper for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add scallions and garlic; cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in spinach, 1/2 cup feta, dill, pepper and salt.

  3. Brush mushrooms all over with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Place on a baking sheet and divide the spinach mixture among the mushrooms. Bake until hot and starting to brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon feta and with crushed red pepper, if desired, and serve.



Tip: To prepare portobello mushroom caps, gently twist off the stems of whole portobellos. Using a spoon, scrape off the brown gills from the underside of the mushroom caps. If you prefer, purchase portobello mushroom caps, rather than whole mushrooms.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
