30+ of Our Best Mushroom Recipes to Try ASAP
Mushrooms are a severely underrated vegetable. They’re often hiding in the background, playing the supporting role instead of having their time in the limelight. But mushrooms are a powerhouse, adding serious meatiness and deep, rich flavor everywhere they’re added. You can count on this regardless of variety. Shiitakes, oysters, trumpet, and morel mushrooms always get high marks, but even basic button mushrooms have a lot to offer up.
The first step in cooking up a totally irresistible mushroom recipe is picking up good-quality mushrooms at the grocery store or farmers market. That means choosing mushrooms that are smooth and plump with no gooey or mushy spots, and avoiding mushrooms with excessive browning on the caps. While they’ll keep for about a week at home (keep them in the original packaging in the fridge, or a paper bag for wild mushrooms), it’s worth cooking them up sooner than later.
It’s time we pay homage to the meaty, mighty mushroom! From savory soup to a creamy sauce, we’ve compiled more than 30 totally irresistible mushroom recipes put mushrooms front and center, where they belong.
