Today’s Best Recipe is an inspiration. Five mushroom-based dishes you should try at home. They are easy and fun to make.

Mushrooms are a great source of nutrients, and the range of species you can purchase provides a wealth of different flavors and textures. With more people looking to reduce meat intake than ever before, mushrooms are proving to be a great alternative. Mushrooms are flexible and taste delicious, and there are hundreds of recipes that you could prepare at home using mushrooms that everyone will love. You could even grow your mushrooms for your meals. You could even try grow kits for your home.

Here are just some of the mushroom dishes which you could try preparing in the house.

Portobello Burgers

Portobello mushrooms are a variety that is thick, chunky, meaty, and packed with earthy flavors. This is why these mushrooms are such a perfect option when it comes to a meat-free burger. For this kind of burger, look to use a pan brioche and some smoked cheese, and this combines so well against the strong tones of the portobello mushroom. Once you have tried this, you may never go back to burgers again.

Stuffed Portobellos

Another great option for the portobello mushroom is to stuff and bake them.

In reality, there is no end to the range of options when it comes to stuffing the mushroom.

We like to make a mixture of leafy greens like spinach and kale, slowly sautéed with some creamy cheese like mozzarella or ricotta.

Try using our spinach artichoke dip as the stuffing.

Once finished, add the mixture to the top of the mushroom and then coat with parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.

Bake your mushrooms until they are done, and then dive in.

Mushroom Risotto

This mushroom-based dish was made famous by Chef Gordon Ramsey. 

Mushroom Risotto is a staple in Hell’s Kitchen.

Risotto dishes are made using arborio rice which is cooked slowly in chicken or vegetable stock.

Risottos are very creamy because of the way the rice breaks down, and they can be prepared using seafood or chicken.

This dish perfectly lends itself to mushrooms, and that creaminess helps to offset the meatiness of the mushrooms you have added.

We like to add a couple of different mushroom varieties here, such as shiitake, oyster, and button.

Wild Rice Mushroom Soup

The beauty of making a mushroom soup is that you can play around with a large variety of mushrooms to find the flavor which you love most.

This is a hearty and warming soup that will put a smile on your face when the weather is grim.

The wild rice adds a level of smokey flavor to the soup, and the cream that when the soup is cooked offsets some of the earthiness of the mushrooms.

Our go-to mushroom mixture here is enoki, oyster, shiitake, and porcini, which combine so well in this type of dish.

Garlic Mushrooms

Garlic mushrooms are a great option for a starter, and they are also very easy to prepare.

We do this with some button mushrooms, which we toss in garlic and parsley butter.

Leave the mushrooms in the butter mixture and bake in the oven for 20 minutes for a mouthwatering side dish.

Mushroom-based dishes offer a variety of textures and flavors.

There are so many varieties of mushrooms that you can pair with your entree or appetizer.
