Guest Post: Vellutata di Funghi al Marsala, Creamy Mushroom Marsala Soup

By Loreto and Nicoletta of SugarLoveSpices

Vellutata di Funghi al Marsala, Creamy Mushroom Marsala Soup, is the most luxurious mushroom soup you will ever have, hosting creamy earthy mushroom flavour accompanied by the sweetness of the Marsala wine and sautéed shallots. The garnish offers nice textural notes of sautéed mushrooms and pepperiness from the parsley. More so, the paprika adds just enough of that sweet smokiness to keep us very happy! A perfect soup for the beginning of the fall season!

Guest Post: Creamy Mushroom and Gouda Crepes

Recipe by Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean.

Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog that I’ve been writing for eleven 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 cookbook author, I’m lucky to have turned my passion for all things food into a career I love. This past year I started my own jumbo gourmet cookie business, and if you’re ever in Saskatoon stop by the Farmers’ Market on the weekend and grab a cookie! Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and three cats.

Guest Post: One Pot Mushroom Biryani

Recipe by Suganya of Relish The Bite.

Rich and flavourful biryani made with mushrooms. It is an easy dish to cook in 30-40 minutes with minimum ingredients. This is perfect to cook when you have guests over or make it for dinner parties quickly You are going to love this flavourful rice.

An authentic mushroom biryani is always slow cooked on “dum” in one pot. It is an ancient technique of cooking on “dum” as they believe it brings out its uniqueness and originality. This is done by cooking the rice and veggies under steam by not allowing the steam to pass. The food gets cooked in its own steam and juices on slow fire, and it infuses the flavours and aroma of the herbs and spices in the food. You can enjoy this with thick yogurt.

Guest Post: Lazy Summer Mushrooms

Recipe by The Messy Baker

This quick, no-cook side dish is perfect for lazy summer days when turning on the stove takes too much effort. The recipe — raw baby mushrooms marinated in a vinaigrette — is incredibly simple but delivers a worthy-of-seconds side dish. Designed to be made a day in advance, it will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge, so you can always have some on hand.

Marinated mushrooms are also incredibly versatile. Want them spicy? Add a pinch of dried crushed chilies. Want them sweeter? Use white balsamic instead of sherry vinegar. Guests are arriving now? Cook the mushroom caps in boiling water until tender, then drain, and you’re ready to go.

Recipe by Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean.

Hi everyone! My name is Renée Kohlman and Sweetsugarbean is my food blog I’ve been writing for eleven 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. My second cookbook: Vegetables: A Love Story, was released in the fall of 2021. The last couple of years have been very busy, and I’m so proud of the work I’ve done so far. In case you’re wondering, yes, there is a chapter devoted to Mushrooms! Free time (remind me what that is again) includes Netflix, reading, and spending time with my guy Dixon and three cats.

I’m always excited when Mushrooms Canada asks me to write a guest post for their blog. Mushrooms are a staple in my kitchen and it’s always a thrill to put them into new recipes. Mushrooms always make their way into my shopping cart and into my kitchen. They are great to use year-round as they are the only vegetable that contains vitamin D. Bursting with antioxidants and cancer-fighting compounds, not to mention being low in calories, mushrooms play an important and delicious part of my culinary adventures in the kitchen.
