Five Tasty, Terrific, and Totally Easy Mushroom Recipes!

16 Apr

According to Organic Gardening magazine, today is National Mushroom Day (although according to every other source it is not!). Dramatic and sustaining, mushrooms are a quick way to jazz up your basic burger, make a delicious appetizer or add some sexiness to a tapas night. So in honor of the day that may or may not be, here are my top five mushroom posts.

They can all be made with the basic white button mushroom, which tends to be the most economical. Look for unblemished crowns and on the underside, try to get mushrooms which are closed around the stem, not fanning out. Wipe them clean with a damp paper towel (the woman I worked for in France had me peel them one by one, but I don’t recommend that for every day cooking. Too much work!)

    Mushrooms add so much flavor when added to recipes or served on their own like your garlic mushrooms.

      I agree! Next stop will be stuffed mushrooms or somesuch….Have you ever grown them? I have been considering it and would love some ideas!

    You’d think that mushroom day should be the day that wild Autumn mushrooms go on sale in food markets. The food days seem to be quite arbitrary – there’s a pancake day completely separate to Shrove Tuesday. Anyway, great recipes as always 😉

      Maybe it is Organic Gardening’s biodynamic calendar that is different? Lately I am questioning the sense of having New Year in January when Spring makes so much more sense!
