  1. In the summer, grilled portobellos all the way — and in the winter, I love a good wild mushroom risotto!

    • sofia fly on said:

      I love Portobello burgers as well, but I really love a wild mushroom bruschetta. I love mushrooms raw, cooked, whatever!

  2. Amy B. on said:

    I’ll eat mushrooms any way, but I love mushroom soup particularly.

  3. Katie on said:

    I love to grill portobellos and make portobello steaks!

  4. Molly on said:

    My favorite way to eat mushrooms is mixed with quinoa and feta for a great side dish!

  5. elizabeth from LocalSavour.com on said:

    I adore every type of mushroom and prefer them simply in an olive oil, garlic, and salt & pepper saute.

  6. Nancy on said:

    I love a creamy mushroom soup!

  7. Vinci on said:

    I love chinese mushrooms in a broth based soup!!! So good : )

  8. Jennifer from jenniferobrochta.blogspot.com on said:

  9. Julie on said:

    Mushroom stroganoff is our favorite

  10. K Smith on said:

    I am a fan of chopped up mushrooms cooked into a creamy sauce for pasta!

    Sauteed with garlic in butter. Simple & delicious!

  12. Kendell on said:

    I love putting mushrooms on pizza! So many yummy topping combinations that include different types of mushrooms.

  13. I used to hate mushrooms until I tried a mushroom ravioli at a local restaurant and was completely mindblown! It didn’t have the funky texture I’d gotten to know from previous dishes. Love the flavor, learning to like the texture. It’s a process.

  14. RebeccaF on said:

    Anything made with mushroom stock is delicious to me, but my favorite use is in French onion soup. While beef broth is the traditional base, homemade mushroom stock makes it vegetarian and just as rich and tasty (if not more so!!)

  15. Shannon on said:

    Put them on/in anything and I’m golden, but I’m a real sucker for spinach and mushroom pizza!

  16. Joanna on said:

    There is a mushroom ragout recipe in Plenty that is ridiculous. Especially so because it’s basically just mushrooms and broth poured over garlic croutons and topped with a poached egg. It’s insanely simple and delicious.

  17. Annemarie from brunchatsaks.blogspot.com on said:

    I love to add them to risotto, although after seeing your polenta recipe yesterday I might have new fave way!

  22. Emily on said:

    Simply. Sautéed with a bit of butter, salt, and pepper

  23. Jamie on said:

    I actually never liked mushrooms, unitl my mother in law gave me her recipe for vegan “chopped liver”. So simples – onions garlic mushrooms and walnuts! 🙂

  24. Meg on said:

    Now that winter is here, I can’t wait to make some beef stroganoff with tons of mushrooms.

  25. chelsy from mangiablog.com on said:

  26. Lauren on said:

    I love making a Russian mushroom “caviar.” So tasty!

  27. sarah.a from sarahlikesgreen.com on said:

  35. RH on said:

    Heidi Swanson has a great recipe for Mushroom Soup w/ Wild Rice that’s become a favorite of mine.

  36. carey from accordingtocarey.com on said:

    I really only know one way, saute them in butter for a looooong time.

  37. Caitlin H. on said:

    Sadly…I’m not a big fan of fungus 😉

    Mushroom risotto is my favorite!! And sauteing them with a little coconut for a meaty lettuce wrap. YUM.

  44. Melissa on said:

    My favorite is in risotto – in particular with asparagus!

  45. My favorite way to have mushrooms is sautéed in butter with onions and thyme and spread over baguette. But my favorite ‘dietitian’ way to have them (job requirement!) is stir fried with sesame oil and mixed veggies over brown rice.

  46. olivia on said:

    first saute whole garlics until they are soft and browned as if they are roasted, then add a little butter and a splash of sweet vermouth, then add mushrooms. serve alone as a side or with pasta with arugula wilted in!

  47. Megan from thelifeofmegananne.blogspot.com on said:

    how the heck do you get your mushrooms so clean and speck free?

  48. Amber on said:

    I will eat mushrooms in just about everything, but one of my favorite fall recipes is for mushroom, butternut squash, and sage pasties. Yum.

  49. Adrianne from ReallyRecipes.com on said:

    I love marinated wild mushrooms on toasted brioche. Yummy!

  50. I love mushrooms on most things, but especially pizza! My fiance’s greatest flaw is that he doesn’t like mushrooms. 🙁

  51. My husband and I go chanterelle picking every year. We love to put it on homemade pizza in place of meat!

  52. Nikki on said:

    M not a fan of mushrooms, but have taken to chopping them up fine to bulk up ground beef in recipes. Very budget friendly and I don’t even know they’re there…it’s the texture that usually gets to me when they’re prepared whole.

  53. Sally from sallycooks.com on said:

    I love mushroom risotto (and Whole Foods :)! )

  69. Ree on said:

    Slice and then sauté onion, garlic and mushrooms until they are cooked. Season with sea salt and pepper. Spoon this mixture over lightly toasted bread. Top it off with grated cheese and broil for a couple of minutes. And voilà, that’s sizzling, mushroom bruschetta!

  70. Melinda on said:

    I don’t love mushrooms, but I did put them in a fresh green bean casserole last Thanksgiving and it was delicious!

  71. Cali on said:

    Sauté! Put on toast. Enjoy.

  93. Sarah Stites from sarahstites.com on said:

    My mother and I make an excellent “mushroom melt” sandwich. Any mushrooms work but baby portabellas are best. Saute them with onions, artichokes and garlic. That mixture tops some toasted artisan bread. Add some tomato, mustard, hummus and sharp cheddar cheese. Bake till the bread is golden and the cheese is bubbly and add more veggies like pickle, avocado, sprouts, lettuce…you name it. It makes quite a Dagwood, but it’s so fabulous! I love mushrooms 🙂

  94. Jenny on said:

    Mushroom risotto FTW!!

  95. Ellen on said:

    Grilled portobello burgers – so yummy!

  96. Eileen from hampiesandwiches.blogspot.com on said:

    The best way to cook mushrooms is in a saute with butter and lots of garlic! Then you put it all on a piece of crispy sourdough toast and eat it with a fork (due to melty butter overload). Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  97. MS on said:

    I love mushrooms, especially in risotto.

  98. Inge from soupandsuch.wordpress.com on said:

  104. Susan on said:

    Sautéed in red wine over a grass fed steak.

  105. jackie on said:

    I’ve never been much of a mushroom person, but after recently conquering olives, it’s next on my list. This would be the perfect way to try a wide variety!

  110. mushrooms in everything! in stuffing, in omelettes, on pizza, in pasta…

  111. Heather on said:

    It just so happens that I am sauteeing some mushrooms tonight to put on polenta. Mushroom tacos are probably my favorite though.

  115. Annie on said:


  116. Lydia W. on said:

    I love to saute mushrooms with olive oil, rosemary, and pepper until golden and then sprinkle them with flaky salt. I like to eat those plain or put them on top of white pizza!

    Roasted! In a beef stroganoff! With steak! (Seriously, I can’t get enough of mushrooms…)

  118. Tess on said:

    I love mushrooms in a frittata or in soups!

  120. Tara Henderson on said:


  121. DV on said:

    I LOVE mushrooms! I could probably use it in almost anything. Lately, I’ve been loving Japanese Enoki mushrooms in a hot pot or even a simple miso soup.

  122. MGG on said:

    In my eggs, in my stir-fry, and in a tomato/avocado/sprout sandwich the other day. Sometimes when there’s pizza with mushrooms, I eat the mushrooms, but not the pizza! Is that crazy?

  123. Elizabeth from vegfedfam.blogspot.com on said:

    mmm, roasted mushrooms and polenta 🙂

    Roasted portabellas with peach salsa in the summer! Divine!

  134. Beth on said:

  135. Allie from allisonspurlockphotography.com on said:

    When I go out camping I take a big bag of wild mushrooms, wrap them up in tin foil and let them roast over the fire with onions. Then eat them over toasty bread.

    Mushroom risotto!

  142. Teddi on said:

  143. Allison on said:

    I love to make grilled portabello mushroom “burgers” with roasted red pepper and balsamic. I also love to use shiitake mushrooms in miso soup.

  144. Kelsee on said:

    Sautéed with peppers and onions!

  145. Taylor on said:

  150. hannah on said:

    It is has been a mushroom explosion ’round here (although I have been leery of wild mushroom since a fateful Thanksgiving weekend when I was about 10).

    I use them in Tom Yum or otherwise spicy/sour soups. And I love to pick the extra-crispy mushroom schnibbles off a slice of pizza.

  151. Dionisia on said:

    I love to grill them and dress them with balsalmic and lettuce, useing them in place of a hamburger for a piece of summer during the winter!

    I love cooking mushrooms with burgers or chicken!

  166. geena from thefancybear.etsy.com on said:

    i love mushrooms all ways but my recent favorite is in Vegetarian Stuffed Peppers! when you dice them small and sautee with onions, celery, and garlic they get sort of a meaty texture and taste very savory and delicious!

  167. andie on said:

    For Shitakes, simmer slices with melted butter, a pinch of salt, and a splash of water. Let liquid cook off and stir occasionally until the mushrooms crisp around the edges. Top with pepper and parsley, or not. Tastes better than bacon.

  168. Mikki from missfats.wordpress.com on said:

    love love love mushrooms! I tend to favor an earthy shitake: they can really transform an entire dish.

  169. Lacey on said:

  172. stella on said:

    my favorite is enoki! …actually i love all kinds of mushrooms!! >.<

  173. My fave way to cook mushrooms is to sauté them in a little butter, garlic and salt for a simple side dish!

  174. Joyce on said:

    All the ways! Particularly, on the grill, on pizza, or Spanish style with lots of garlic and olive oil.

  175. Zoe from zo-oui.tumblr.com on said:

    I use enoki mushrooms as a noodle substitute in asian broth! Yum.

  176. Tutti on said:

    Saute in butter with a little lemon juice, or in Boeuf Bourguignon, or in an omelette, oh yum.

  177. Chelsea from thefunnycurrent.wordpress.com on said:

    Enoki and Oyster mushrooms in some hot ramen with a soft-boiled egg. Chewy and satisfying texture. Warms you up for the winter.

  178. Meghan on said:

    When I’m not eating them straight from the package, my baby bellas usually end stem-side up, drizzled with olive oil, on top a roasting pan. Throw on some garlic and maybe some onion so that all of the flavors cook together. A healthy pinch of salt for absorption, a splash of wine for adventure, a good grind of pepper for kick, and 20 minutes under the heat, leaves you with svelte melt-on-your-tongue shrooms, to be eaten on thick toast, eggs, polenta, you name it. Perfection in the button-hole of a vegetable.

  179. Steph on said:

    Sauteed in butter with a bit of salt and pepper on it. My grandpa would bring chanterelles from his hikes and prepare them like that, I’ve never tasted more delicious mushrooms.

  180. Steph on said:

    portobello burgers! however, that creamy polenta recipe might be the new favorite.

  181. olivia from thishandknitlife.blogspot.com on said:

    sauteed.. definitely.. a little butter & garlic. YUM!

  182. Mariah from mariahthompsonblog.com on said:

    A recreation of one of my favorite dishes from a local italian restaurant – mushroom ragu tagliolini with truffle oil and pecorino romano. YUM!!

  183. Anna on said:

    Being a Minnesotan, I believe the best way to consume mushrooms is with wild rice, especially in the form of a creamy mushroom wild rice soup.

  184. cory from endlesslyenraptured.com on said:

    I’m a hug fan of sauteing chanterelle mushrooms freshly picked from the woods. Living in the Northwest part of Oregon is the ideal place to do so

  185. Lizzie on said:

    That is a tough question but I have to say – thinly sliced and sautéed with a pat of butter, then eaten straight out of the pan. So good!

  186. Millie from foodopia.tumblr.com on said:

    Portobellos stuffed with butternut squash, couscous, and butterbeans, with some lemon juice on top – SO DELICIOUS!

  187. Susanna on said:

    I love any type of mushroom all the time. But my favorite is probably the little tiny mushrooms that are all bunched together used in Chinese broth-based soups with a bunch of other veggies 🙂

  188. Jasmine on said:

    LOVE mushrooms with fettucine Alfredo and in breakfast scrambles.

  189. Amity on said:

    I love to sauté them in sesame oil until a little crispy on the edges, then douse them in a soysauce and brown sugar mixture until caramelized. Incredible for an extra dash of umami on top of any dish! (Well, the ones that make it onto the table– I’m always guilty of eating half straight out of the pan!)

    I’m obsessed with king trumpet mushrooms. I slice them thin with my mandoline and crisp the slices with olive oil. They’re great for garnish, snacking, or as a bacon substitute.

    Quinoa Pilaf! I sautéed a mess of mushrooms, throw in what ever veggies I have kicking around. Asparagus in spring, fennel in fall, roasted squash in the winter frozen peas kale or whatever greens I have and cooked quinoa. Add hard boiled egg, or sunny side egg makes a great meal 🙂

    I like to take mushrooms and cook them in a combination of butter and olive oil in a pan, then add some vegetable stock (or chicken stock) and cook some more, then add some cream and then some sherry.

    There is no better mushroom memory for me than walking out my front door in the woods of Indiana and harvesting wild morels. We had a reliable patch in a little gully and it was heaven on earth to harvest those beauties, give them a little swish in water and sauté them in nothing but good Irish butter. Add a glass of champagne and It’s mushroom romance as it should be.

    I’ve gone morel mushroom hunting with my family each spring since childhood. We eat nothing but mushrooms for days and they are delicious. Throughout the rest of the year, I glean what I can from the asian market and buy all sorts of varieties. Right now, I’m into making brothy soups and thick curries with them.

  408. Kristin Jones on said:

    My very favorite way to eat chantrelle mushrooms is to sauté them in butter with shallots then deglaze the pan with white white – cook back down and add heavy cream – let it reduce. Pour over a 3 egg omelette – divine!

  414. Jo on said:

    As an avid (and trained) wild mushroom forager, my favorite way to eat mushrooms is to find some wild ones (my favorites are hedgehogs, porcini, and black trumpets) and just saute them in a little bit of oil with garlic, salt, and pepper. For good quality mushrooms, that’s all they need! Then I’ll serve over pasta or with some veggies.

    Make califlower mash. Add a little white miso, garlic and butter/vegan butter.

    Now you have the most delicous vegan Steak and Potatoes!!!!!!

  497. Meg on said:

    My favorite are oyster mushrooms and I like to use them in a “stir fry soup”. Stir fry the mushrooms with scallions, napa cabbage, chili garlic sauce, tamari and a little bit of maple syrup. Then add water and miso paste. Simmer for a few minutes until the miso paste turns into broth, then pour the soup over cooked udon or soba noodles. Finish it with a little chopped cilantro, bean sprouts and toasted sesame oil. So good and super fast!

    2. In Hungarian paprikash, with mushrooms instead of chicken. When I decided I wanted to become a vegetarian when I was a teenager, my dad worked tirelessly to adapt all of my favorite recipes (his "famous" recipes, which all contained meat!) into vegetarian versions. For the paprikashroom (as we now call it) he uses a variety of mushroom types, and cooks them with butter, onions, red peppers, pimentos, and bay, adding lots of paprika and sour cream and a good hoppy beer along the way. We serve it with homemade drop kluski noodles. It's my favorite comfort food in the world, full of family history and love, that has now become a holiday tradition when we're all back together and in the kitchen again 🙂 Just writing this.. I can't wait!

    I love to make mushroom meat-balls, using a variety of wild and dried. The secret to getting a meaty flavor is utilizing umami-rich dried shitakes, which I grind into a powder and add along with tomato paste, a splash of coconut aminos, and ground toasted walnuts. I’ll interchange the complimenting ingredient as well, such as eggplant or lentils!

  560. Kristen on said:

    It is hard to pick just one! Current favorites include in a pasta sauce, frittata, or on pizza.

    Risotto! Or filled portobello’s in the oven. Or sautéed with a steak. Yumm…..

  566. Alaina from tobeshelved.com on said:

    I think a better question would be what don’t I cook mushrooms with? The combination of mushrooms and spinach seem to show up in my meals on a daily basis. A breakfast scramble. A pasta addition. Or just with some sliced potatoes and rosemary.

    A Whole Food gift cards would be the perfect way to offset my holiday shopping… and get more mushrooms in my kitchen!

  591. emily on said:

    lately, my absolute favorite dish is a mushroom “bourguignon.” since I’ve been eating much less meat this year, it seemed like the perfect fall-winter dish — and while it took me a couple of tries, I’ve finally gotten the hang of browning mushrooms versus steaming them! I’ve been experimenting with different mushrooms just to see how it changes the texture and flavor of the dish, also adding a bit of fish sauce for some umami 🙂 Honestly, buying new & exciting mushrooms is kind of a pricey endeavor, so I would LOVE, love, LOVE this gift card!

    My favorite recipe for mushrooms is a mushroom galette that I made the first time we invited my in-laws over for dinner. I was so nervous, as my father in law was particular about his food. He loved the galette and always asked me to make it for future holidays. He passed 8 years ago — but very fall and holiday — I make this recipe to remember him.

  617. Caroline on said:

    I love to saute mushrooms on the stove top – love when they are caramelized and flavorful! They go great with goat cheese. Delish!

  618. crittergarden on said:

    The key to a good mushroom recipe, for me, is LOTS of onions. I am still, after 34 years since I first made it, in love with the Mushroom Barley Soup from Molly Katzen’s original Mossewood Cookbook. I don’t always put the barley in it. And following that inspiration to my Southern Girl roots, I started making my chicken livers in bacon fat (I know, I know) with a ton of mushrooms and onions and some soy sauce. I only make that once a year now – for New Years – and I put a generous amount of blackeyed peas in it.

  619. Mary H on said:

    I love mushrooms, especially chanterelle. I simply sautéed them with some butter and olive oil. Yum yum!

  622. Anna B. on said:

    One of my favorite recipes is for Hungarian Mushroom Soup – so delish! 🙂

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter or EVOO
    2 cups chopped onions
    1 pound fresh button mushrooms, sliced
    1 pound fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced
    2 teaspoons dried dill weed
    1 tablespoon paprika
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    2 cups Veggie broth
    1 cup milk
    3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    ground black pepper to taste
    2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    1/2 cup sour cream

    Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté the onions in the butter/EVOO for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 5 more minutes. Stir in the dill, paprika, soy sauce and broth. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.

    In a separate small bowl, whisk the milk and flour together. Pour this into the soup and stir well to blend. Cover and simmer for 15 more minutes, stirring occasionally.

    Finally, stir in the salt, ground black pepper, lemon juice, parsley
    CAUTION: BE VERY CAREFUL when adding the sour cream so it doesn’t curdle. I usually will take the soup off the heat and let it chill out for about 5 minutes while taking small spoonfuls of the warm soup into the sour cream to help it warm up. COLD SOUR CREAM WILL CURDLE if just tossed into the soup. So baby steps in warming the sour cream before adding it in.
    Mix together and allow to heat through over low heat, about 3 to 5 minutes. Do not let this boil – trust me!

    I absolutely love anything mushrooms. I recently discovered oyster mushrooms this past summer and what a wonderful discovery!!! I sautee them with tons and tons of garlic and add a bit of vegetable broth and top with lots of dills and served over home fries. Let me tell you it was so delicious i have been dreaming oyster mushrooms ever since but it seems they are a rare birds at most super market.

  624. kelly on said:

    I love to saute shitake mushrooms in olive oil for awhile until they get nice & browned. Then, I usually mix them into a pesto pasta with tomatos, spinach, and some parmesan cheese. They really bulk up the pasta!
