❤️ Why You’ll Love These Recipes

  • All of my recipes are super straightforward and easy to follow. Some of these meals will take longer to prepare than others, ranging from quick 15 minute meals, all the way up to slow cooker recipes that need a few hours. But they’re all very simple, and whatever your cooking skill, you’ll be sure to end up with a delicious meal.
  • I never cook with any weird or hard-to-find ingredients. Everything here can be found easily in most supermarkets.
  • Mushrooms are so easy to cook with, and they don’t take much prep. Just rinse or brush them off lightly, then slice or dice as needed. They cook quickly too!
  • Mushrooms are particularly great to use in vegetarian cooking, because they can bring a slight ‘meaty’ chewiness to a meal, which can otherwise be missing.
  • They also contain a decent amount of protein, compared to most other vegetables, so they can help to make your meals more filling.
  • There are all sorts of mushrooms available, and in most cases, they’re interchangeable – so you can just use whatever mushrooms you have on hand.

🧾 Top Tips for Cooking with Mushrooms

  • Mushrooms reduce in size a fair bit as they cook, so always start with a larger volume of mushrooms than you think you’ll need in the end product!
  • They release quite a lot of liquid as they cook (hence reducing in size!), so if cooking them in a frying pan, make sure to spend an extra minute or two cooking away the liquid, if needed. If you’re adding mushrooms to a slow cooker recipe, for example, where the liquid will be retained, you may need to slightly reduce the other liquids in the recipe.
  • Frozen mushrooms are great to keep on hand – especially for recipes where they’re just an additional vegetable, rather than the star of the show. Be aware that frozen mushrooms release even more liquid than fresh, so some recipes may need to be adjusted slightly if you want to use frozen ones.
  • For recipes where mushrooms are the main focus, such as mushroom stroganoff or mushroom bourguignon, I like to use a few different types of mushroom (e.g. portobellos, chestnut mushrooms, and button mushrooms), as they all bring slightly different flavours and textures to the dish.
  • Mushrooms pair really well with a variety of herbs. My favourites are dried thyme, for rich mushroom stews, or fresh parsley for a lighter, fresher flavour, such as in a creamy mushroom pasta.
