Spinach Dip Stuffed Mushrooms

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes, plus time to soak cashews
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes Serves 6
  • Total Time: 50 minute
Scale

Ingredients

For the cashew cream:

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt 

For the spinach dip:

  • 2 tablespoons butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 3 packed cups fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup Cashew cream (from above)
  • Fine sea salt
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 1 pound cremini mushrooms, cleaned and destemmed
  • Optional: 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Soak the cashews in a bowl of water for at minimum 1 hour or up to 8 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, shallot, and onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Fold in the spinach and cook, stirring occasionally, until the spinach has wilted. Set aside.
  4. To make the cashew cream: Drain the soaked cashews and place them in a small food processor or high-speed blender. Puree the cashews with the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and ½ teaspoon of salt. Fold the cashew cream into the spinach mixture until evenly combined.
  5. Arrange the mushroom caps on the lined baking sheet and brush the outside of the caps lightly with olive oil. Scoop a large spoonful of the spinach mixture into the cavity of each cap. Top with the cheese, if using.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft and the cheese has begun to brown. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

Variation: Hot Spinach Dip. Egg-free and dairy-free (if cheese is omitted), this is your solution to a hot, creamy party dip that everyone can enjoy. Place dip into an oven-safe bowl, top with cheddar cheese, if desired, and bake until the cheese is golden. Use homemade crackers (page 000), veggies, or plantain chips for dipping.

  1. Congrats on your anniversary, Lexi! I love your cookbook 🙂 I have to say, your Buttery Drop Biscuits in the book is the best paleo baked goods I have ever had. Those biscuits…I mean, DAMN. They remind me of Bisquick biscuits from childhood but TASTIER and HEALTHIER!! I most recently made your Pasta with Meat Sauce and that was also a big hit with the family. Keep up the great work!

  2. I can’t even say enough about these stuffed mushroom! There was not one left behind…not even a crumb of one! This recipe will be a staple in my house!

  3. I’ve never used raw cashews before (or made spinach dip, for that matter). Would it be OK to make this a day ahead of time and just pop into the oven right before serving?

  4. I’d like to know the same thing! Can this be made ahead of time, refrigerated and warmed in the oven just before serving?

  5. Question – cashew cream recipe calls for 1 cup of cashews but spinach dip recipe says 1/2 cup of cashew cream? Do we put a cup of cashew cream or 1/2 cup in the spinach filling for the mushrooms???
