The best vegan mushroom recipes! These are super easy 4 hearty mushroom recipes that are perfect for dinner
Mushrooms are simply irresistible!
They are perfect for breakfast, lunch, dinner, appetizer….
….and even desserts
Tips for working with mushrooms
- I always wash them in advance. More often than not, I wash them a day before. They way, they are completely dry when I cook them
- Let the mushrooms cook by themselves before adding any liquids (like water or broth). This will make sure they cook evenly and not be a soggy mess
- Do not salt the mushrooms until you have cooked them. Salting them will release moisture and make the dish soggy
- When using portobello mushrooms, be sure to remove the gills. They ruin the taste of any meal you put them in and they prevent the rest of the mushrooms from cooking evenly
- I try to use the stems in compost or broth recipes because I hate wasting any part of them
- I put mushrooms in (affiliate link) this mesh bag and place the bag in the bottom vegetable tray
- Mushrooms don’t go bad easily, if stored properly. For me, they last a good two weeks after purchase
- Mushrooms will go bad quickly if left out in the open. If you can’t refrigerate it, keep it in a cool dry, place

Pasta and mushrooms! That always sounds delicious to me, so, I had to make a recipe using them.

Are mushrooms vegan?
Yes, mushrooms are very much vegan. They are part of the fungi family which is vegan and vegetarian friendly.
Mushrooms “not” being vegan is an urban myth that has been taken as the truth by so many people. Yet, It couldn’t be further from the truth.
Bottom line is that all mushrooms are part of the plant kingdom and not the animal kingdom. So, feel free to eat all the mushrooms you can!
