Ingredients

  • 24 mushrooms
  • 3 Tablespoons butter*
  • 1/2 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1 Cup plain soy milk
  • 1 1/2 Pound fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 Teaspoon nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Place the chopped spinach in a large frying pan. Do not turn on the heat. In a sauce pot, on medium heat, melt the butter and add the onion and garlic. Sauté until the onion is soft and translucent. Add the flour and stir continuously until it becomes a paste like consistency and tan colored. Carefully add the soy milk, and nutmeg, and continue to stir continuously. When the flour is dissolved, pour the sauce over the spinach in the frying pan. Turn the pan on medium heat and toss until the spinach has wilted.

Scoop the spinach mixture into the mushrooms and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm.

Spinach Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Spinach Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
