5 ways to cook mushrooms
Are you someone who loves mushrooms but is quite uninspired when it comes to cooking with them in the kitchen? Here are 5 different but delicious dishes you can make with your magical mushrooms and relish with your friends and family.
Creamy mushroom soup: Feel warm and comforted with a bowl of hot, mushroom soup. In a pan, heat some oil and saute finely chopped onion, garlic and celery. Once soft and brown, add button or cremini mushrooms and cook till they’re soft (keep some mushrooms aside after they are softened). Add some water/vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Once it comes to boil, whiz with a stick blender until it is smooth or of the consistency you need. Add some cream and bring to boil. Serve with hot buttered toast topped with the remaining softened mushrooms.
Stuffed mushrooms: If you’ve got a packet full of portobello mushrooms, get ready to indulge yourself! Scoop out the stem of the mushrooms and let the round hollow remain. In a bowl, mix some cheese with salt, pepper, green chili, herbs and mix it all together with a dash of olive oil. Stuff the mushroom hollow with the herbed cheese and bake them for about 15 minutes till you see the cheese melt and the sides of the mushroom brown.
Mushroom rice: If you are feeling super hungry and want a quick meal to take care of your hunger, make mushroom rice. Cook some rice. Quickly saute some finely chopped ginger and garlic in a pan with oil, add mushrooms (and any other veggies that you’d like). Season with salt and pepper. Add the rice and a dash of soy sauce (optional). Enjoy!
Mushroom toast: Mushrooms work just perfectly by themselves as a healthy side dish and even go great with a toast. Saute some chopped garlic and green chili in oil and add button or shiitake mushrooms (you can make this with any type of mushrooms). Add some chopped tomato (optional) and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Eat it with some salad greens or put this on top of a toast with some butter and your favorite cheese and enjoy.
Spinach mushroom omelette: Mushrooms go very well with spinach and eggs. You can make an omelette, fritatta, pie or any dish combining these three ingredients. For an omelette, beat eggs in a bowl and add salt, pepper, cheese (optional, or you can shred some cheese on the cooked omelette), chili flakes and whisk well. In a pan, heat some oil and cook mushrooms till softened. Add the spinach (and tomato, again, optional) and then add the egg mixture.
