3. Mushroom Fettuccine with Truffled Pecorino

This fettuccine is filled with mushroom flavors thanks to the use of both shiitake and chanterelle mushrooms as well as Cacio di Bosco cheese, a Tuscan pecorino made with truffles. Garlic, shallot, and fresh parsley round out this dish, which only gets better when you use fresh fettuccine.

6. Mushroom Risotto

Mushroom risotto is one of our favorite mushroom recipes, and this version is one of the best. Fresh portobello and crimini mushrooms as well as dried porcinis give this risotto a true punch of woodsy flavors, and truffle oil and fresh herbs add even more depth to the aromas of this dish. Use a good white wine in the base, and serve the risotto with glasses from the same bottle.

7. Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms with Crispy Goat Cheese

These portobello mushroom caps are stuffed first with a homemade tomato sauce made with lots of garlic and a touch of oregano. Next is sautéed spinach mixed with shallots. Finally, they’re topped with blend of buttery panko and creamy goat cheese before being baked in the oven. This recipe is a delicious vegetarian main or a perfect side for grilled steaks.

8. Gluten-Free Vegan Quiche with Mushrooms, Kale, and Sweet Potato

A quiche without gluten or eggs seems impossible, but you’ll soon see how good it is with this recipe. A quinoa flour crust forms the base in which mushrooms, kale, and a sweet potato and tofu batter are baked. It’s a quiche unlike any you’ve likely tried before, and it’s well worth the venture into uncharted territory.

9. Cream of Mushroom Soup

This homemade cream of mushroom soup is miles away from anything you’d find in a can. Crimini and shiitake mushrooms unite with shallots, garlic, and a touch of tarragon — the secret ingredient that brings out the earthy notes in the star of this soup. Be sure to cook the mushrooms well before puréeing to ensure that you get a silky addition, made even smoother with the addition of heavy cream.

10. Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

Mushroom caps were just made to be stuffed, and this vegan sausage stuffing is the perfect tool. Made with Tofurky Italian sausage, a nice splash of white wine, and some select herbs and spices, these vegan stuffed mushrooms are deceptively easy and super delicious as an appetizer, passed hors d’oeuvre, or just as a simple dinner.

We love going out for ramen, but it’s just as delicious when you make it at home. This relatively simple ramen made with enoki mushrooms and baby bok choy is perfect for cold weather, and you can easily change it up and add your favorite ramen ingredients to the base.
