Portobello Paprikash over Wilted Spinach

This Hungarian-inspired recipe uses meaty portobello mushrooms instead of chicken and smoked paprika in lieu of bacon for a light-but-rich-tasting dish.



Ingredient Line: 
1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
Ingredient Line: 
⅓ cup evaporated milk
Ingredient Line: 
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
Ingredient Line: 
5 tsp. garlic oil, divided
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. smoked paprika
Ingredient Line: 
1 lb. portobello mushroom caps, sliced
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups chopped red onions
Ingredient Line: 
10 oz. baby spinach leaves (12 cups)


1. Whisk together yogurt, evaporated milk, and mustard in bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat 3 tsp. garlic oil and paprika in skillet over high heat. Add mushrooms and onions; sauté 12 minutes. Add mustard mixture to mushrooms, and heat until warmed through.

3. Heat remaining 2 tsp. garlic oil in separate skillet over medium-high heat. Add spinach in batches, and cook 2 to 4 minutes, or until spinach is wilted and bright green. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Divide spinach among plates, and top with mushroom mixture.

Comments on this Recipe

made this last week. may have cooked the mustard mixture a little too long because it got very gritty. If it wasn't for the consistancy it would have been really good

The yogurt/milk/mustard mixture curdled as soon as I mixed it in with the mushrooms and onions. Perhaps it would be good to turn the heat to low before adding the dairy items? Also, I think next time I would serve the mushrooms over quinoa or rice instead of wilted spinach. Mushrooms and spinach both give off a lot of water when cooked, and it was a watery mixture on top of another watery thing. The flavors were nice, though.
