Vegetarian recipes and info
by Laura K. Lawless
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.
A rich and creamy Italian sauce, usually served over fettucine. It’s also delectable in spinach lasagna and with ravioli.
Antipasto, 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.
A lovely, rich soup made with asparagus, leeks, and mushrooms and topped with a corn and bell pepper garnish.
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.
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.
Carrots, chickpeas, mushrooms, onions, and walnuts are mixed with curry for a uniquely spicy veggie burger. Delicious!
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.
