Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms

Looking for an appetizer to serve at your next holiday gathering or take with you to an event that will wow your guests, but NOT expand your waistline?  Look no further.  This stuffed mushroom recipe, courtesy of Weight Watchers, calculates to ONE point per serving...and they taste like they should be off limits! They can be made ahead, stored in the refrigerator, and heated in the oven as well.  This is a recipe I make to take to my family's Christmas eve celebration every year.


Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms


  • I pound button mushrooms, about 24 large mushrooms
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 10 oz. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 2 1/2 slices whole wheat bread, processed into crumbs
  • 1 tsp. creole or cajun seasoning
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese,divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (If prepping ahead of time, do not preheat oven until you are ready to bake the mushrooms. Lightly coat a 9 x 13" casserole with cooking spray.
  2. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel. Remove stems from caps and finely chop. (I used a food processor) Set aside. Place caps, with hole from stem side up, in prepared casserole dish. Season caps with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Saute chopped mushroom stems, onion, red pepper, and spinach until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in bread crumbs and creole/Cajun seasoning and half of the Parmesan cheese until well combined. Taste the mixture and add salt and pepper as needed.
  4. Stuff each mushroom cap with approximately 2 TBS of filling. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover dish with foil, and bake for about 15 - 20 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft. Serve warm.
Yield: 12 servings-2 mushrooms each
