These low calorie, bite-size healthy appetizers will get your party off to a great start. Prepare the stuffing up to a day in advance, and assemble the mushroom caps shortly before your party.
1 1/2 lbs white button mushrooms (about 30-36)
1 Tbsp olive oil
3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
4 garlic cloves minced
3 cups spinach
Black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat the oven to 350°.
Remove stems from mushrooms and dice. Set aside.
In a skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the onion and mushroom stems and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to sauté for 1 minute. Add the spinach, pepper, parsley, basil and thyme and sauté until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the panko bread crumbs and all but 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine.
Stuff the mushrooms with the spinach mixture and arrange on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan, and bake until the cheese is melted, about 20 minutes. Serve warm.
