Are you looking for a low carb stuffed mushrooms recipe that is just as flavourful yet adheres to a keto and gluten-free diet? Many stuffed mushroom dishes have breading added. This recipe by SA Mushroom Farmers’ Association  boasts spinach as the filler, making it a healthier alternative. Spinach is rich in many nutrients, including Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, iron, folate, and potassium. It’s also chock full of fibre.

Serve these scrumptious mushrooms as a starter or double up as a main.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp oregano, finely chopped

  3. Remove the bacon from the pan and cook the spinach in the bacon fat for a few minutes. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cool slightly.
  4. In a large mixing bowl add the crispy bacon bits, the cooked spinach, the fresh rocket torn into smaller pieces, the oregano and mix well. Crumble in the feta and give it a final toss.
