Portobello Mushrooms with Sauteed Spinach & Egg

Using big portobello mushrooms is an easy and tasty way to substitute meat in a dish.

I do this whenever I feel like I have met my meat quota for the week but still crave something hearty and filling. I love this portobello mushrooms with sauteed spinach and egg recipe because of its multi layers of flavors.

Each component brings a flavor point that makes every bite exciting: earthy portobello mushrooms, salty and peppery sauteed spinach, tangy pickled radish and creamy and savory feta and egg. So delicious!


Though the dish screams “I’m so pretty and yummy, you HAVE to serve me for brunch!”, you can make it for dinner too.

Adding a dollop of Morimoto’s wasabi avocado dip makes it even more colorful and interesting – the perfect meal to whip out if you are looking to impress a foodie! It’s also very easy to make and doesn’t take long in prepping and cooking time.


The classic soup and sandwich combo is always a good option for quick and easy cooking but it’s nice to switch it up once in a while. Quick and easy can also be oven baked potato chips followed by these savory portobello mushrooms. Bon appetit!

  • Total Time: 17 minutes
  • Yield: 2 people 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Cuisine: American


  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (stems removed)
  • 2 pounds baby spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 large eggs

For pickled radishes:

  • 1 radish (finely sliced)
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt


  1. Add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a large pan over high heat.
  2. When the oil is hot, add portobello mushrooms facing up and cook for 5 minutes. Flip them over and cook for another 5 minutes, until they look golden brown.
  3. In a medium size pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and chopped garlic. Cook for one minute and add spinach. Cook for two minutes or until spinach has completely wilted and season well with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  4. Flip the mushrooms over one last time and cook for two minute, to get rid of excess water. Turn the heat off, transfer to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add a little oil to the same pan and add eggs. Cook on medium heat for about 3 minutes so the yolks are still soft but not cold and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Divide spinach evenly among two plates and top with mushrooms.
  7. Sprinkle feta cheese on top of mushrooms and top with an egg.
  8. Garnish the plates with a few slices of pickled radish. Serve immediately.

For pickled radishes:

  1. Put vinegar, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix well. Add vinegar mix to radish, cover and let marinade for at least 30 minutes.


Making the pickled radish is optional but does add a whole new layer of flavor.
