Healthy Creamed Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms
I've been making these stuffed mushrooms for a while now and they are my go to easy side dish. They pair well with a number of different main dishes and saying they're delicious is an understatement.
Stuffed with a simple and healthy creamed spinach made with a little butter and almond milk, you can eat many of these stuffed mushrooms without any guilt and barely any calories.
You definitely do not need to load creamed spinach with a lot of butter and heavy cream to make it delicious and satisfying. I would actually prefer to eat this light version of creamed spinach. You can eat way more of it and you feel good after eating the fresh and healthy ingredients.
I hope you enjoy these stuffed mushrooms as much as I do. They are so satisfying and full of flavor. They are the perfect side dish to any meal. They would also make an amazing Thanksgiving side dish.
