Cooking with Mushrooms

Cooking with Mushrooms

With a home full of vegetarians, I always challenge myself to develop new meals that fit our family's diet. Mushrooms are a great flavor and texture substitute for meat. If, like me and little Aria, you're not a vegetarian, cooking with mushrooms will help you creaete new vegetarian dishes that are as satisfying as meat.  

Morels, chanterelles (girolles in French), beech, maitake, Hegehogs, porcini, wood ear (also known as black fungus mushrooms or nấm mèo in Vietnamese), brown crimini , shiitake and Portobello mushrooms are all varieties  I've used often in the kitchen. They're rich in umami, which is the savory flavor quality that sort of mimics what we get from meat. Happy cooking!
