Plant-Based Almond “Cheese” and Onion Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushrooms have been one of my favorite vegan foods. I can put them in pretty much anything, and they are gonna be great:  burritos, gyros, risotto, breakfast scrambles, burger toppings, and salads.

I even planned my Thanksgiving meals around mushrooms. 

They are usually the side dish, but here they are the main event.

I used the Vegan Almond Spreadable cheese, and a couple other simple ingredients to amp up these veggies. For some reason, I wanted to add all the veggies in my fridge to stuff into these mushrooms, but I ended up using only the mushroom stems, onions, and spinach to create an uncomplicated recipes that’s perfect for summer.
