Spanakopita Style Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Happy Friday to you. I hope your day is going well and you are cooking up something tasty in your kitchen.

In today’s post, I am sharing one of my favorite vegetarian stuffed mushroom recipes. I don’t know why I never created this recipe years ago, as I always make them. If you love spanakopita then I am sure you will enjoy these. The mushrooms are filled with a creamy spinach cheese mixture then baked inside a red wine bath. Imagine those flavors? The perfect meze to cook up for the family.

Spanakopita Style Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe


  • 10-15 large Cremini mushrooms cleaned
  •  3 tablespoons of olive oil (purchase here)
  • 5 cups of fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup of diced white onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons of dried dill
  • 1 tablespoon of dried basil
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Pinch of salt and pepper to season
  • 1/4 cup of sourdough bread crumbs (I always use my own day-old bread to make breadcrumbs)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup of feta divided
  • 3 tablespoons of Fage Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of red wine + 3 tablespoons of water (reserve for baking)


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prepare to hollow out the mushrooms. Remove the stems and set stems aside in a bowl. Once you remove all the stems then place mushrooms on a lightly oiled baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Coarsely chop the mushroom stems.
  4. Prepare a large saucepan over medium heat and saute two tablespoons of olive oil with onion, garlic, and mushroom stems. Saute for a few minutes then add the spinach. Cook until the spinach wilts.
  5. Add the dill, basil, paprika, salt, and pepper. Stir to mix, and then remove from heat.
  6. In a blender blend the egg, yogurt, and half the feta cheese until smooth. Add this mixture to the spinach mixture,  and making sure to stir quickly so you do not cook the egg. Add the rest of the feta cheese and stir to combine.  Take a spoonful of the mixture and fill each mushroom. I like to fill them good, that way you enjoy all the flavors.
  7. Once the mushrooms are filled then sprinkle a generous amount of breadcrumbs over the top. Pour the wine-water mixture inside the bottom of the baking dish. Bake in the middle rack for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from heat and serve warm.
