Stuffed Mushrooms with Spinach & Ricotta

I adore baked mushrooms, and these were thrown together during the week to use up a glut of spinach that arrived in the veg box. Very tasty they were too 🙂

For 2 people (as a starter) you need:
4-6 portabello mushrooms
250g spinach, washed and finely shredded
25g butter
1 clove garlic
1/2 tub ricotta cheese
salt and pepper
freshly grated nutmeg
1/3 cup finely grated gruyere

Begin by peeling the mushrooms and trimming the stalks. Place them stalk side up on a baking sheet and top with a little garlic and butter and seasoning. Bake in a moderate oven for 5-10 mins. Meanwhile wilt the spinach in a bowl in the microwave. Season and add some grated nutmeg. Mix in the ricotta. Take the mushrooms out of the oven and place the spinach filling on them. Top with a sprinkling of cheese and bake for a further 20 mins or so until hot and bubbling. Serve with lots of crusty bread to soak up the juices.
