Spinach and Toasted Pine Nut Stuffed Mushrooms ….another stuffed mushroom

A while back I made stuffed mushrooms for the first time.
I thought they turned out great. I’m a little weird about mushrooms…I like them, but they are one of those foods I have to be in the mood for. There have been plenty of times, I hate to admit, where I have had to throw out a container of mushrooms because I hadn’t been in the mood to cook them. I tend to include them in a lot of my recipes that include a stuffing, like these stuffed peppers … I find that when they are chopped up small and mixed with rice or beef they act as a nice filler, adding some texture but helping in keeping the calorie count low.

Spinach and Toasted Pine Nut Stuffed Mushrooms

Yesterday I found myself in the same situation that I usually am in. A small bunch of whole mushrooms on the verge of getting thrown out. My good friend (who is expecting a little boy next month!) mentioned she was craving stuffed mushrooms the other night and asked me if I had a recipe…I sent a link to these…and then got a craving of my own. I decided this time to make them vegetarian, and instead of beef used leftover toasted pine nuts from my grilled eggplant salad.

They were a perfect little side dish for dinner last night. Marialisa…if we weren’t 2000 miles away from each other these would totally have been for you. 😉

    Love stuffed mushrooms. Great idea with the pine nuts, and a white wine sauce. Heaven!

    Oh wow, those look terrific. I really like your vegetarian version of the stuffing, and that wine sauce — totally YUM! I bet those pine nuts tasted great here. I’ll take a triple batch, please. Your photos are spectacular, too.

    I love mushrooms, especially with spinach and white wine. They look absolutely delicious!

    I wished I liked mushrooms! I don’t mind the flavor (or smell) while cooking them, its a texture thing for me.

    Yours looks great though!

    I made stuffed mushrooms as well for the Superbowl. Yours sound so tasty. Those buggers can get expensive though, huh?

  14. Michele posted February 2, 2009 at 7:27 pm

    OMG! I love those mushrooms. I am definitely going to make them!

    I love stuffed mushrooms but like you I also find myself throwing them away many times. I usually just forget about them and sometimes I am just to lazy to clean them(which is my most dreaded food task-cleaning mushrooms). It is never as easy as it looks on those cooking shows; it takes a lot of time.
    Anyway, they look so delicious. I will have to try this one.

  18. Aggie posted February 3, 2009 at 12:26 am

    I’m so not a fan of cleaning mushrooms either!

  19. Mary Ann posted February 3, 2009 at 1:24 am

    I wish I could say I liked mushrooms because these stuffed ones look fantastic. I have to stick with them being chopped up in stuff because I just don’t love them. My hubby would go crazy for them though. He loves mushrooms.

    I’ve done the same thing, thrown out a package of mushrooms because I thought I wanted them buuuut no.

    And you’re killin’ me today. I can never ever get enough spinach. That looks so good.
