Adding mushrooms is a great way to include a subtle flavor to your winter dishes! Mushrooms are a sustainable food choice because they are grown from agriculture and forest wastes and generally require very little water or land to grow. They are also one of the only natural food sources of Vitamin D (when exposed to UV light), something we can all use a little extra this time of the year. Check out the following ways you can get more mushrooms into your life!
Marinate large Portobello caps the way you would a steak, and grill.
Chop mushrooms finely, cook down, and use in recipes calling for ground meat.
Sauté mushrooms in olive oil, garlic, lemon, salt, and parsley and use in your favorite pasta.
Marinate mushrooms in cumin, chipotle, lime, salt, and olive oil and use as the base for a delicious taco.
Add large pieces of shiitake mushrooms to your favorite clear-broth soup for succulent, chewy bites.
Add dried mushrooms to your next vegetable stock for that “je ne sais quoi” depth of flavor.
Roast them whole with olive oil, garlic and rosemary for an easy side dish.
