Guest Post: Sautéed Mushrooms with Rapini

It’s important to have a variety of side dishes in your arsenal for whipping up on a weeknight. This side is one of my favourites to whip up to go alongside a weeknight barbecue. I always have mushrooms in my fridge and I’ve always loved this combination of mushrooms and rapini, whether stirred into a pasta, a soup or on their own. Call me crazy, but this could even work as a burger topping!

I love the play between the umami of the mushrooms and the bitter bite of the rapini and it works perfectly as a quick side dish. I finish mine off with a drizzle of sesame oil, but this can be optional!

Guest Post: Tofu Mushroom Soup

Recipe by Carole Nelson Brown of The Yum Yum Factor

Trust me, it will be worth finding the ingredients for this quick, nutritious dish. It is cooked halfway between a soup and a stew. If you want to make it vegan, leave out the egg and the fish sauce without sacrificing a ton of flavour. Because mushrooms are a huge source of umami, they are natural bff’s with with all of these delicious flavours.

I used sliced button mushrooms, but you can use any mushrooms you have on hand like shiitake, king oyster, portobello or cremini – just cook the mushrooms a bit longer if you use king oyster. Serve with a side bowl of sticky purple rice or a bowl of warm sushi rice.
