I'm allergic to mushrooms and have always had a difficult time trying to find a substitute in recipes where mushrooms aren't the star player, but figure prominently in the dish. Is there anything with a similar earthy flavor or meaty texture? I've heard that mushrooms have no equal. Please tell me it isn't true!
