8 ways to cook with mushrooms
Mushrooms are not only delicious, but they also have many health benefits. Here are eight easy ways to include more mushrooms in your diet
Versatile sauce for pasta
Sauté some chopped onion and garlic with sliced cremini, oyster and portobello mushrooms. Cover and simmer over low heat for about 15 minutes. Toss in chopped parsley.
Simple veggie burger
Grill or broil a large portobello. Place on whole-grain bun and top with your favourite fixings.
Hearty main-dish salad idea
In a baking dish, combine a few types of mushrooms with minced garlic and a drizzle of olive oil; roast until browned. Place warm mushrooms overtop salad greens, and sprinkle with Parmesan shavings and pine nuts. Drizzle with a red wine vinegar/ olive oil dressing.
Feel like a comforting soup?
Sauté chopped onion, garlic, celery, green pepper, carrot and button or cremini mushrooms until soft. Add enough broth to generously cover, and toss in a handful of pearl barley. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and then simmer, partly covered, until barley is cooked, about ?40 minutes.
Combine some chopped parsley and tomato with crumbled feta cheese, bread crumbs and a little olive oil. Stuff mixture into stemmed large button, cremini or portobello mushrooms, and place in casserole dish. Bake until softened and nicely browned, about 15 minutes.
