Spinach, Sundried Tomato and Almond Stuffed Mushrooms

Stuffed mushrooms are such a classic party staple. What I love about them is that you can make a large amount and the flavors are so versatile. Typically, I make them with sausage but I decided to create a meatless one (and honestly I might like this one better). The sundried tomato adds a nice pop of sweetness while the almonds and parmesan add a perfect nuttiness that just gets better as these roast in the oven. I foresee this being one of my favorite holiday recipes for years to come!


1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the stems from each mushroom and place in a food processor. Place the mushroom caps on the prepared baking sheet.



2. Place the almonds, tamari, garlic, tomatoes and spinach in the food processor with the mushroom stems and pulse to combine. With the processor running, drizzle in 1/2 cup olive oil.


3. Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl. Add the panko and cheese and stir to combine.


4. Scoop the mixture into the mushroom caps. Bake for 15 minutes.

5. While the mushrooms bake, combine the remaining olive oil and balsamic in a small bowl. Once out of the oven, sprinkle the mushrooms with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic.
