Mushrooms are one of nature’s most versatile vegetables and thanks to their savory, umami (meaty) flavors, they are commonly known as the vegan’s meat.
There are also an abundance of varieties, textures, sizes, flavors and uses for mushrooms, from the large portobello mushrooms to the smaller Asian varieties like shiitake and shimeji. Hit up your local farmer’s market and see what you can find.
Mushrooms are commonly featured in recipes from all over the world and have even been used for medicinal purposes in folk medicine because of all the great nutrients they contain.
I was first introduced to mushrooms in soups and casseroles. Much later I discovered they are more versatile than even meats because they can be stuffed with almost any kind of filling you can cook up. And their textures are great and give my meals an earthy flavor.
