Spinach and walnut-stuffed mushrooms


4 large flat portabella mushrooms
150g frozen essential Waitrose Whole Leaf Spinach
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
25g walnut pieces, chopped
2 tbsp essential Waitrose Soured Cream
¼ tsp grated nutmeg
1 tbsp white breadcrumbs
2 tbsp grated essential Waitrose Extra Mature Cheddar


1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Remove the stalks from the mushrooms, placing the caps stalk-side-up in an oiled baking tin. Chop the stalks. Cook the spinach in a covered pan until defrosted then drain thoroughly.

2. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan and add the chopped mushroom stalks and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes until soft and golden. Stir in the spinach, walnuts and soured cream. Season and add the nutmeg. Spoon the mixture onto the mushrooms. Scatter the breadcrumbs and grated cheese over the mushrooms and bake for 12–15 minutes until cooked through and browned on top. Serve with a tomato and red onion salad and crusty bread.

Cook’s tip

Stir a couple of tablespoons of Wholesome Mixed Seeds into the stuffing for added crunch.
