Hummus & Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms

in Entrees, Other

Is it seriously Sunday already?  Even though I know that I still have nearly a full day off of work left, I always feel the impending doom of Monday lurking around.  Does this happen to anyone else?  This Sunday is a busy one, too, so it is sure to fly by.  I have to get my fitness on, clean my apartment, prep a bit for my Blogcation, read, do laundry, make a Wal-Mart run, and watch some fabulous Sunday night TV.  Yes…all of that in one day.  The weekends should definitely be longer.  From now on, we should all just work four days per week and have three days off.  Don’t you agree? 😉

Due to the business that my life is right now, my posts have been a bit brief.  But I don’t want my crazy schedule to keep you from some delicious recipes.  So for right now, expect to continue seeing recipes, with slightly less creativity and fewer words.  As long as we get to the food that is really all that matters, right?  Now, it is mushroom stuffing time!

Hummus & Vegetable Stuffed Mushrooms

Makes approximately 2 servings (for a meal) or 4 servings (for appetizers)


olive oil cooking spray
2 8 ounce packages of whole baby bella mushrooms
vegetable broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 bell pepper, finely diced (I used red and orange)
1/2 small yellow onion, finely diced
1/3 cup frozen or fresh corn
2 to 3 cups fresh spinach, roughly chopped
1/2 cup panko or whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
fine sea salt, to taste
black pepper, to taste
1/4 cup hummus (any flavor that you desire)


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a 9 x 13″ baking dish with cooking spray.  Set aside.

2. Wash and remove stems from mushrooms.  Set aside.

3. Line a large skillet with a thin layer of vegetable broth.  Heat over medium-high heat until very hot.  Once hot, lower the heat to medium and stir in garlic, peppers, and onions.  Cook for approximately 6 to 8 minutes, or until softened.  Add additional broth or water, as necessary.

4. Stir in corn and cook an additional 3 to 5 minutes, or until cooked through.

5. Add spinach and turn the heat down to medium-low.  Cook the spinach for approximately 3 minutes, or until it has wilted.

6. Turn off the heat.  Stir in breadcrumbs, spices, and hummus until well-mixed.

7. Stuff the mushrooms with the hummus and vegetable mixture.

8. Place the mushrooms into the baking dish and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until the mushrooms are cooked, but are not too soft.

9. Plate the mushrooms to make them look all fancy 😉 and dig in!

May I also suggest having several napkins on hand?  These babies are quite messy.  I attempted to eat them with a knife and a fork and I still made a mess!

Most stuffed mushrooms contain meat and cheese.  Well, with all of these veggies, we certainly don’t need the meat.  And the addition of hummus eliminates the need for cheese.  You could, of course, add nutritional yeast and/or vegan “cheese,” if desired.  These really are the perfect vegan dish/appetizer.

Have a great, productive, and relaxing rest of your weekend!

    Mushrooms are one of my favorite vegetables, so this sounds divine! I love stuffed mushies. I have to bookmark this one!

    Yum! These look GREAT!
  • Lucie@FitSwissChick August 4, 2013, 1:03 pm
    I SO want to try stuffed mushrooms! I bet they would also be great on the grill.
  • Marisa @ Uproot from Oregon August 4, 2013, 2:54 pm
    Love this idea of hummus as the creamy texture!
  • Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies August 4, 2013, 3:26 pm
    Some weeks, I actually DO work 4 days and get a three day weekend (I work nine hour days and get every other Friday off) -- still not enough. Trust me. I always feel like I could use more weekend! I love the idea of stuffing mushrooms with veggies and hummus. Sounds amazing.
  • The Cookie ChRUNicles August 4, 2013, 3:27 pm
    These look great, thanks for the idea - I just bought a fabulous new hummus too!
  • Ani D August 4, 2013, 8:08 pm
    Oh these look delicious! I love stuffed mushrooms, but not when they are loaded with cheese and bacon (yuck!). These look wayyyy better!
  • Becky @ Olives n Wine August 4, 2013, 8:15 pm
    Oh yes. Seriously these look amazing and oh so easy! When I'm finally living with my boys again, I am going to have my chef (aka, Kyle) make these for me when he insists on grilling steak ;)
  • Marie @ Little Kitchie August 5, 2013, 5:51 am
    I would certainly love these! I'm obsessed with mushrooms!
  • Brynn August 5, 2013, 7:12 am
    I am currently in IIN learning about the benefits of adding in at least one day of eating completely plant-based meals. I'm not a big meat eater to begin with, but find my problem is a lack of recipes and ideas. This recipe looks delicious, I cannot wait to try it!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 5, 2013, 7:21 am
      Well you should definitely stick around because the majority of my recipes are plant-based! I hope that you find some you like!
  • Miss Messy August 5, 2013, 7:39 am
    Why have I never thought of stuffing mushrooms with houmous!? Super idea! :)
  • Tiff @ Love Sweat & Beers August 5, 2013, 7:58 am
    Yes yes yes - 3-day weekends for all!
  • Runner Girl Eats August 5, 2013, 7:59 am
    I love everything about this recipe! Thanks for sharing, I know what I am having for dinner!
  • MegBek August 5, 2013, 8:00 am
    This is such a good idea! My roomie and her man made stuffed peppers and as much as I want to give it a try, I really can't handle peppers. This sounds like an awesome alternative!
  • Alexis @ Hummusapien August 5, 2013, 8:09 am
    Hummus and veggies stuffed in a mushroom?? I can't think of anything more perfect :) So great for a quick and tasty dinner, too.
  • Dixya @ Food, Pleasure, and Health August 5, 2013, 8:53 am
    i love the idea of hummus and mushroom. I already saw two other blogs with stuffed mushroom, I think its a sign :P Happy Monday
  • Pamela @ Brooklyn Farm Girl August 5, 2013, 9:10 am
    My dad was the stuffed mushrooms cook in our house growing up so whenever I see a stuffed mushroom recipe, makes me smile. Thanks!
  • Katherine August 5, 2013, 9:26 am
    Lately I have been obsessed with hummus! My mom and I have been trying to eat vegetarian, and this is the perfect vegetarian side dish! Mushrooms taste better than meat to me!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 5, 2013, 10:15 am
      I LOVE hummus! I eat it nearly every day. And you are right..mushrooms are definitely better!
  • IHeartVegetables August 5, 2013, 9:27 am
    I just made stuffed mushrooms for the first time a few weeks ago, and they were good, but not super healthy! I think stuffing them with hummus (rather than cheese) is an AWESOME idea!
  • Dani's Dish August 5, 2013, 9:48 am
    I love mushrooms, this recipe looks awesome!
  • Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen August 5, 2013, 9:58 am
    I agree to working less days of the week. I try and just stay busy on Sundays so I don't spend too much time dreading Mondays. :)
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 5, 2013, 10:16 am
      Same here! Although I don't think that it is much of a choice for me. It seems like there is never enough time during the weekends to get everything done that I need to do!
  • Eating 4 Balance August 5, 2013, 10:31 am
    Sundays go by too fast! In the morning I always want to just lay around because I know it will be the last time that I get to do that for five days, but then in the afternoon I regret that decision because I think of all the time I wasted... It's a no win. Sunday afternoons always stress me out!
    • cleaneatingveggiegirl August 5, 2013, 1:06 pm
      I have been forcing myself to wake up early on Sundays so that I don't feel like I waste the day away. I do, however, almost always take an afternoon nap! ;)
  • jessiebearwhat August 5, 2013, 10:36 am
    Mmm these are gorgeous. And actually I love Sundays, but if I have a job interview or something new/unpleasant the next day I definitely feel anxious towards the end of Sunday. If it's just a normal work week though Sundays might be my favorite day!
  • Kelly @ Vegan Iowan August 5, 2013, 10:49 am
    Yum! These would not last 10 minutes in my house!
  • Dana @ Conscious Kitchen Blog August 5, 2013, 11:36 am
    I love stuffed mushrooms - these sounds delicious! Sundays are very bittersweet for me. Happy to have one more day of the weekend, but sometimes that doom of Monday really does sneak in. I try to forget about it by enjoying the day as much as I can.
  • ashley August 5, 2013, 12:37 pm
    Thanks for still keeping the recipes coming despite being so busy!! And yes, either way you look at it, mondays stink!
  • Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen August 5, 2013, 1:39 pm
    Hannah, I am just loving this stuffed mushrooms recipe of yours! I just adore hummus and an all veggie stuffed mushroom is a welcome change. Plus, it is a great go-to "safe" recipe when entertaining. Thanks so much for sharing, girl!

  • Ashley August 7, 2013, 6:43 am
    haha I love Sundays since it's still the weekend but hate the feeling that Monday is so close! And stuffed mushrooms are one of my favorite appetizers! I need to try this - I've never used hummus in them before!
  • lizziefit August 8, 2013, 12:59 pm
    Mmmm these looks beyond amazing!
  • Amanda D September 28, 2016, 7:35 pm
    This is exactly what I've been looking for. I made these tonight and thought they were delicious!! Thank you so much for sharing. We are trying to not consume as much meat in our home, therefore I'm constantly searching for yummy veggie dishes.
    • ClnEatingVegGrl September 29, 2016, 8:01 am
      I'm so glad you enjoyed them! Thank you for letting me know :)
