18 Unique Mushroom Recipes, Because Portobello Burgers Aren't Their Only Use

Updated:2016-04-07 09:43:25.0


It’s time to reconsider the mushroom. While many people may stay away from this ingredient, disliking its taste or texture, there are plenty of unique mushroom recipes that prove that fungi are actually pretty versatile. They’re not just placed on hamburger buns as a vegetarian alternative at cookouts — they can make their way into pasta, lasagna, egg dishes, and more. So if you’re a stuffed mushroom loyalist or if you want to give this ingredient another chance, now is the time.

Mushrooms have many benefits that will make you want to incorporate them some more into your cooking. For one, they’re rich in B vitamins and potassium. Their anti-aging properties, since they’re filled with anti-aging properties, are also a major plus. Seriously, the pros outweigh the cons of this food, so it’s time to pick up a package of crimini, oyster, button, or portobello mushrooms to try something new.

For a healthy dinner recipe, you can make homemade falafel using ‘shrooms instead of chickpeas. Or, for something a little more indulgent, mushroom risotto is always a hit. Feel free to get creative and use mushrooms to make taco night a little more magical too. The possibilities are truly endless.

1. Meaty Mushroom Lasagna

Filled with hearty textured vegetable protein (a tasty meat substitute!), A Beautiful Mess' mushroom lasagna is vegetarian friendly, but even meat eaters will love it. A mix of mozzarella, parmesan, and cream cheese hits the spot.

2. Mushroom Bolognese

Mushrooms may not be a traditional addition to bolognese sauce, but A Cozy Kitchen shows that they do wonders when paired with ground beef in this tomato sauce. Plenty of Italian seasoning kicks it up a notch.

3. Teriyaki Mushroom Sauce With Grilled Salmon

Salmon and mushrooms may be an unexpected combination, but Steamy Kitchen shows that these two ingredients bring out the best in one another. A homemade teriyaki sauce ties everything in together.
