Fall recipe round up: 25 mushroom recipes

So this isn’t usually a place where I talk about serious things, but it feels wrong to jump into my usual cheery banter without acknowledging last week’s hideous events. Even if there are no words.
My heart and thoughts are with the victims and their loved ones, and also with all of the innocents who are already facing backlash for these horrible events.

A couple weeks ago I posted a round up of savoury pumpkin recipes for fall, and today I’m back with another one of my favourite ingredients: mushrooms. I tend to stick to a few winning combinations (think garlic + thyme + parmesan + truffle oil), but there are so many mushroom recipes out there that transform this humble ingredient into all manner of deliciousness. If you’re not sure about mushrooms – perhaps if you’ve only ever had them quite soft and nondescript as one of many elements in a pasta sauce, for example, or thinly sliced and raw at a salad bar – give them another chance. They are so wonderfully hearty, and with so many varieties to choose from you’re bound to find at least one kind that you like.

So without further ado, here are 25 mushroom recipes that I’ve assembled from around the web! (Okay, and I snuck a few of mine in there too…)

I hope these recipes inspire you in some way to experiment with the humble mushroom. (No matter what I write here, I feel like it sounds like I’m referring to drugs!)

Sending love on this stormy Monday <3 xx Sophie

    What a great round-up, Sophie! I love mushrooms and think they are the perfect substitute when you’re looking for something with a meaty texture. They’re a great way to make non-vegetarians happy! I’ll definitely be referencing this list when I need inspiration.

    Sophie, it was such a sad week and I’ve been thinking positive, healing thoughts for all involved. It makes me want to spend more precious time with my loved ones. All the recipes on this roundup look absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to start making some of them.

      I feel the same way – I don’t usually feel too far disconnected from my fan & friends in Canada because the internet is such a great thing, but I wish I could just give them all giant hugs. On the plus side, it’s so heartwarming to see so much positivity being spread around on social media, instead of so many hateful messages.
