Easy, Vegetarian Slow-Cooker Stuffed Mushrooms Make an Impressive Appetizer
Beginner slow-cookers and seasoned veterans alike need to know how to employ their Crock-Pots to make party-ready appetizers beyond queso dip, and that’s why we developed this stuffed mushroom recipe. It’s loaded with a spinach-artichoke blend that gets blitzed in your food processor before being dolloped onto each mushroom cap. Don’t let the list of ingredients intimidate you: This recipe really couldn’t be easier, and it only takes two hours to be party-ready.
Slow-Cooker Spinach-artichoke-stuffed mushrooms
(Makes 10 mushrooms)
Recipe Notes: We used a small 3-quart slow-cooker, as pictured. If you have a larger one (5-quart or bigger), double the recipe. The mushrooms can be stacked on one another as they will shrink as they cook. Just keep an eye on the slow-cooker and make sure the mushrooms all stay upright as they cook.
1. Spray a small slow-cooker with ghee or vegetable spray. Splash with Worcestershire sauce.
2. Remove stems of mushrooms and put in food processor. Place mushroom heads, gills side up, in base of slow cooker.
3. In a food processor, along with the mushroom stems, combine all remaining ingredients except for parsley. Chop until a thick paste is formed.
4. Using a melon ball scooper with a spring handle, fill each mushroom cap with 1-2 tablespoons of filling.
5. Place lid on slow cooker and cook on low for 2-3 hours, until mushrooms have wilted slightly and filling is heated throughout.
6. Use tongs to transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with parsley and flake salt.
