Quinoa and Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

quinoa stuffed portobello mushrooms


  • 4-6 Portobello mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black Pepper

Ingredients for the stuffing:

  • 1 large onion, finely diced
  • 2 cups chopped spinach (frozen and defrosted spinach works nicely)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the mushrooms and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Place in the oven and bake at 375 for 15 minutes.
  3. While mushrooms are cooking, prepare the stuffing.
  4. Sauté the diced onions in a bit of olive oil (or Pam) until translucent. Add the spinach, salt, pepper and lemon juice. Stir and cook for a couple of minutes. Remove the mixture from the heat and add the cooked quinoa. Stir to combine everything equally.
  5. Once mushrooms have finished roasting, remove from oven. Distribute the spinach mixture among them. Return to oven and bake at 375 for an additional 20 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and serve hot.

Tip: for a different presentation, cook the mushrooms fully, then dice and toss with the spinach/quinoa mixture for a delicious warm quinoa salad.
