Guest Post: Mushroom Fried Rice

We have a guest in our kitchen today! Louisa from Living Lou is here and she has a tasty dinner recipe you will want to bookmark for safe keeping!

In the last year I’ve focused on two things in my kitchen; reducing food waste and cooking more vegetarian meals. And developing recipes that serve both of these goals; this mushroom fried rice definitely fits the bill. Fried rice is one of the best recipes for reducing waste in the kitchen and it’s easily made vegetarian.

As a cook and writer, I love pushing myself to be more creative in the kitchen and work with a variety of vegetables. I’ve found myself reaching for mushrooms often this year as they lend a “meatier” texture to dishes. That’s how they landed in this mushroom fried rice. I would often add chicken or ground pork here but found that mushrooms do the trick.

I’ve used white button mushrooms here, but you could easily use cremini, portabella or a mixture of them all.

The best way to make fried rice is with day old rice, but the truth is, I never really plan ahead so that I have leftover rice in the fridge. But if you have day old rice, by all means, use that!

Guest Post: Beef and Mushroom Tostadas

Hi everyone!  My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog I’ve been writing for eight years. I live in beautiful Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where I happily whip up delicious creations in my little green kitchen. Being a chef as well as a food writer and recipe developer, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. I’m especially proud of my award-winning debut cookbook All the Sweet Things which was released in the spring of 2017 and won GOLD at the Taste Canada Awards for Best Single Subject Cookbook of 2017. I’m so proud of that accomplishment! Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and four cats.
