Since I dropped a life-news-bomb on you this week, I thought it’d be nice to feed you, too. You know, give you some nutrients and help you plan those weekly menus.
If you don’t like mushrooms, these recipes might just change your mind. Or you could just leave them out and enjoy the tastiness of each meal without them.
My blog, your choice! We work collaboratively here.
We’ll start with what we do best around here – pizza.
Chris-the-houseguest was in charge of this one, and I might have just mind-bookmarked a new favorite homemade pie! This was a flavor explosion.
Bbq Tempeh & Green Chile* Pizza
*yes, the green chile returns. It was the last of the bunch!
Tempeh Slices (amount up to you!)
Fresh mozzarella cheese (sliced) **
Whole Wheat pizza dough
Red onion, sliced
Tomatoes (canned or fresh)
Roasted green chile (sliced or diced)
Asiago cheese (garnish)
Heat the oven to 400*; roll out your dough & top with Bbq sauce. Add tomatoes, veggies, green chiles, tempeh & mozzarella. Garnish with a sprinkle of asiago & bake for ~12 minutes (until crust browns & cheese is melted).
**On a side note: smoked mozzarella has been a shining star in the last two pizzas we’ve made. To say its flavorful does it no justice! If you like a smokey flavor on anything, BUY THIS.
Creamy Soy Ginger Mushroom Pasta
With a few mushrooms left, and a lot of broccoli to use up, I chose pasta and cream for the the night’s inspirations.
~1 cup mushrooms, sliced (button mushrooms)
2 cups broccoli, steamed
1/2 c Plain Greek Yogurt
3 Tbsp Soy Ginger sauce (See above)
2 svgs Whole wheat pasta
Salt n’ Pepper
Heat oil over medium; boil water & add pasta, cook for 10-12 minutes.
Add sliced mushrooms to the oil, saute until soft; add broccoli.
Drain pasta, stir together yogurt + soy ginger sauce.
Combine it all together. Easy!
Serve yourself a portion & garnish with Asiago (another cheese obsession of the week).
And there you go! Two dinners, both of which will take less than half an hour of your time, and both of which will fill your veggie + carb + protein quota for the evening.
What’s your favorite mushroom dish? Are you a fan of the fungus?
I admit I can’t stand them raw, but love them cooked. Hence the recipes above; DOTR kitchen-approved!
