Soak the raisins in a bowl of cold water for 10 minutes, drain and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 1/2 chopped onion and garlic cloves and cook until soft, 4-5 minutes. Add the spinach and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Cover and cook until wilted, 2-3 minutes. Add toasted pine nuts, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, and raisins. Season to taste. Serve with lemon wedges. For the mushrooms, sauté in olive oil on both sides until soft.

Mushrooms can also be grilled first before stuffing.
