Spinach and mushroom are an amazing food combination, they can be found in many cultures and dish, and are often paired with cheese, chicken, bacon, and cream. With the rise in popularity of vegan and vegetarian diets it has become one of the most popular food combos. The two cultures that use this combo the most are Italian with spinach and mushroom lasagnes and risottos, and Indian with mushroom and spinach curries often including lentils or chicken. Other popular spinach and mushroom dishes are frittata, omelettes, and quiches where the combo is often paired with cheese. We have selected our top 5 spinach and mushroom dinner ideas. Three delicious vegetarian recipes and two meat recipes all featuring the spinach and mushroom combo.
Our number one spinach and mushroom veggie dinner idea is a spinach and mushroom tartiflette, we designed this dish to give a veggie alternative to the chicken tartiflette, as being veggie shouldn’t mean you miss out on this amazing dish.
A tartiflette is similar to a potato and cheese gratin, the potatoes are sliced and layered with cheese covered in a creamy stock sauce and cooked in the oven till golden brown, traditionally the dish has chicken and/or bacon added to it. Our tartiflette is perfect for vegetarians, we have replaced the usual chicken and bacon combo for our favourite spinach and mushroom combo.
Our tartiflette is made with layers of sliced par boiled potatoes, spinach, garlic and onions, sliced pre cooked mushrooms and smoked Applewood cheese. The dish is bathed in a cream and veggie stock sauce and placed in the oven to cook till golden brown
To add an extra smokiness to the dish we have added Applewood smoked cheese. The spinach and mushroom tartiflette is served with a simple tomato and green salad with a mustard dressing.
Our second favourite veggie spinach and mushroom dish must be the risotto, the smooth, creamy cheesiness of the risotto marries perfectly with the spinach and mushroom combo
A simple risotto flavoured with fresh spinach and caramelized mushrooms and topped with a crispy walnut crumb
A risotto of rice, wine, onions, celery, and parmesan forms the base of this dish. The risotto is flavoured firstly with fresh spinach which is added directly to the risotto, and then pre-cooked slices of mushrooms, cooked till golden brown and fully caramelised are added to complete the risotto. The risotto is finished with a crumb of brown bread, walnuts, and cheddar cheese to add extra crunch to this deliciously creamy dish
Our last vegetarian spinach and mushroom dish has to be a curry, due to the strong base flavours of spinach and mushroom we have chosen a hot curry to get your taste buds really tingling.
A hot vegetarian curry made with mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, and onions, cooked in a medley of hot spices including hot scotch bonnet chilli, garlic, fresh ginger, bay leaves, cloves, cardamom, cumin, coriander and garam masala. Serve this delicious spinach and mushroom curry with red lentil rice and crispy popadoms.
