Mushrooms are one of nature's greatest medicinal food, & do you know that a Portobello mushroom has more potassium than a Banana?

Food rich in potassium helps reduce the risk of high blood pressure & stroke, not to mention it also protects the muscle & nerve function.
This Grilled Portobello Mushroom with Spinach is one of my family’s favourite dishes & I've been making this almost all my life. Hahaha! This cheesy appetizer can also be served as a healthy “snack”.

4 Portobello Mushrooms
1 slice of Ham
100g Spinach leaves
1/2 tsp Minced garlic
4 tsp Mozzarella cheese
4 tsp Parmesan cheese
1 tsp Parsley flakes
5 tbsp Cream of Mushroom
1 tbsp Butter
2 tsp Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Pinch of salt & pepper

  1. Preheat oven on high heat. Remove mushroom stem & rinse lightly. Brush both sides of mushrooms with butter & sprinkle with salt & pepper. Set aside.
  2. Rinse spinach thoroughly to remove any sandy residue. Remove stalk & chop leaves coarsely. Heat oil & sautéed garlic. Add ham & fry till light brown. Add cream of mushroom & toss in spinach. Mix well.
  3. Add parsley & transfer mixture onto mushrooms. Sprinkle Parmesan & top with Mozzarella.
  4. Grill till golden brown or for about 5-7 mins & serve your Creamy Portobello Mushroom hot!

  1. Looks good! But the sodium in ham counteracts the goodness of potassium :P
    Let's explore a healthier option apart from ham. Perhaps for a more vegetarian approach we can try tofu.

  2. I'm loving all the flavors and textures in this dish, Shirley. I'll bet my daughter would enjoy this as well. She loves mushrooms and cream of mushroom. This would make a lovely side dish for steak or chicken or fish, anything almost. Great dish, Shirley. I can see why this is one of your family's favorite dishes.

  3. Looks very delicious...creative. But I need 2 big ones :D

  4. If I made this at home, will finish withing minutes for we all love potatoes, mushroom and cheese for sure.

  5. I'm not a cheese lover, but your many dishes cooked with cheese never fails to tempt me let alone this one. Sure look yummy!

  6. Mmm...looks very delicious and my family will surely love to have this.

  7. Such a temptress this early in the morning my goodness these are mouth watering at breakfast!

  8. Looks lovely and I bet tastes great too.

  9. Lovelyloey, no worries; actually it's the other way round. One should eat high potassium food to counteract sodium. And if u're still concerned, u may try boiling the ham first before using or eating it :) Thks for visiting & I'll be dropping by your blog soon!

    Lequan, this appetizer never fail to impress :) It's a safe bet to entertain guests too.

  12. Min, spinach does give a different kind of taste too. Really good with those creamy sauce.

    Alisha, I know because I don't take bananas. Just don't like the taste. Thank God there're mushrooms to replace :)
