Recipe box: mushrooms

Mushrooms are another food that elicits strong opinions – most people either love them or hate them. The texture is a bit strange, and the less said about what mushrooms actually are (the fruit of a fungus which feeds on decay), the better. On the other hand, mushrooms are good for detoxifying, high in protein, and tasty, so here’s a collection of vegetarian recipes that call for mushrooms.

Alfredo Sauce

A rich and creamy Italian sauce, usually served over fettucine. It’s also delectable in spinach lasagna and with ravioli.

Antipasto

AntipastoAntipasto, which means “before food” in Italian, is a salad-like appetizer consisting of various fresh and pickled vegetables, cheeses, and rolled or sliced meats. For vegetarian antipasto, you can either substitute mock meat products or leave them out altogether.

Asparagus Leek Soup

A lovely, rich soup made with asparagus, leeks, and mushrooms and topped with a corn and bell pepper garnish.

Beef-Style Seitan

An easy recipe for tender seitan that’s perfect for making vegan braciole.

Cascadilla

This dairy-based, traditional Jewish soup is light and refreshing.

Chop Suey

Chop suey, despite its Chinese name, is actually an American recipe, normally made with a mix of meat, vegetables, and bean sprouts. This vegan version uses tofu, bok choy, and spinach, to great effect.

Christmas Salad

This red, white, and green salad will help spread Christmas cheer.

Crudités

Crudités is a French term that refers to raw vegetables, so a platter of crudités typically consists of one or more types of vegetables served with one or more dips.

Curry Burgers

Carrots, chickpeas, mushrooms, onions, and walnuts are mixed with curry for a uniquely spicy veggie burger. Delicious!

Fajitas

Everyone seems to love “build it yourself” meals, and fajitas are a delicous way to do this. Hot fillings and cold toppings are served with tortillas so that you can mix and match your own fajitas.
