1. Grilled Garlic Butter Mushrooms

As far as super easy, classic, and delicious dishes go, garlic mushrooms have to be in the top 10.

Since they’re cooked on the grill, you’ll get that undeniable smoky flavor that makes everything taste better. 

After a quick 30-minute marinade, they need 5 minutes per side to cook up to perfection.

I don’t know about you, but my slow cooker has been out since that first chilly day a month ago. 

Soups and stews are my favorite thing about the colder months, and this mushroom soup is warm and delicious. 

Use vegetable stock instead of chicken for a great vegetarian meal.

4. 15-Minute Mushroom Teriyaki

Sometimes, I’ll spend hours roasting a chicken to perfection, only to find I forgot a side dish!

This 15-minute mushroom dish is a lifesaver and pairs perfectly with poultry. I like to add a dash of sweet chili before serving it.

5. Crab-Stuffed Mushrooms

Meatless Mondays are so much easier when you incorporate stuffed mushrooms. 

Not only are they delicious, but they’re so filling and go with almost anything. 

Just be careful not to overcook them, as they can become soft and watery.

This one-pot wonder cooks your chicken until juicy and adds a creamy mushroom sauce. Mop it up with some bread to ensure you get it all!

7. Mushroom Omelette

Great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this mushroom dish is packed with protein for a filling and delicious meal. 

It will be more than enough by itself or works well with fries, salad, or crunchy toast.

8. Wild Mushroom Pasta

Between the garlic, sherry, Parmigiano Reggiano, and a variety of mushrooms, you won’t miss the meat here. 

Unlike some other pasta dishes, this isn’t dripping with sauce.

Rather, the mushrooms are coated in the cream, and the pasta is coated in cheese for a more authentic Italian meal.

9. Creamy Porcini Mushroom Risotto

This mushroom recipe tastes like something you’d get at a fancy restaurant. 

The good news is it’s super easy to make at home.

It’s flavored with shallots, garlic, and a porcini-infused broth. The creaminess comes from the rice itself, and there’s no dairy added.

You’ll love this tempting dish!

10. Sauteed Mushrooms

You can’t go wrong with sauteed mushrooms.

Here’s a pro tip for making this dish: don’t forget that mushrooms will shrink as they cook when cooking mushrooms. Don’t cut them too small. Always use more than you think you’ll need. 

For this recipe, add the butter right at the end so it can melt and coat the mushrooms without burning.

11. Portobello Mushroom Burgers

I try to eat vegetarian as much as possible, but it’s so tough to give up burgers!

These might not be quite the same, but Portobello burgers are super satisfying. 

Visually, they look remarkably like a real burger. And with enough added extras, you might not even miss the beef.

12. Mushroom Pot Pie

This mushroom recipe combines a warm and filling mushroom stew with a soft and tasty batch of vegan cornbread. It’s an unbelievable meal. 

If cornbread isn’t your thing, try these amazing biscuits! Swap the butter and milk for vegan products, and you’re good to go.

13. Mushroom Stroganoff with Mashed Cauliflower

If you’re a fan of beef stroganoff, wait until you try this vegetarian version. It’s heart, delicious, and satisfying.

Serving it over mashed cauliflower instead of noodles keeps it low-carb. This is a dish that feels indulgent without any of the guilt!

14. Mushroom Quesadillas

These quesadillas couldn’t be easier! The ingredients list is short: mushrooms, pico de Gallo, tortillas, and cheese.

They’re hearty, tasty, and the best part is, you can have them on the table in about 15 minutes.

15. Polenta with Mushroom Ragu

This red wine mushroom ragu is as indulgent as it gets. Its rich, savory flavor pairs perfectly with creamy polenta.

While ragu is typically served with pasta, the polenta is a better base for soaking up the delicious sauce.

If you’re looking for a show-stopping dinner, this is it!

16. White Mushroom Pizza

I always forget how much I love white pizza until I order a slice. Cheesy, garlicky, and full of carbs, pizza really is perfect in all shapes and sizes. 

The mushrooms have a great meaty texture that pairs well with the cheesy ricotta. 

The only thing missing is a drizzle of BBQ aioli.

17. Easy Mushroom Gravy Recipe

Biscuits and gravy is about as comforting as it gets. I’d take it any time of the day, followed by a sweet tea and a good nap. 

Adding mushrooms to the gravy might seem controversial, but I promise, it’s amazing. 

Once your mushrooms are sauteed, make a roux with the butter and flour before slowly whisking in the stock and milk.

18. Mushroom Toast

This might sound crazy, but as much as I love avocado toast, I like to branch out.

This recipe uses whatever mushrooms you prefer (or have on hand) and cooks them with garlic, chili, and some herbs. They’re then coated in a lemon and butter sauce.

Smear a thick piece of sourdough with some cream cheese and pour the hot mushrooms over the top.

19. Creamy Mushroom and Spinach Orzo

Another fabulous one-pot-wonder, this recipe can be ready to eat in 30 minutes.

It’s a hearty weeknight dinner the entire family will love.

Although it’s an awesome vegetarian option, I think this would be perfect for some thick pork chops.

20. Mushroom Meatballs

Sometimes, you have to try and sneak veggies into a dish. I get it, and I have you covered.

These meatballs are made with finely chopped mushrooms, breadcrumbs, egg, and parmesan. 

You can serve them with your favorite marinara sauce and spaghetti. Nobody has to know they’re meat-free.

21. Mushroom Tacos

Vegetarian tacos often lack the texture you get from chicken or beef. You don’t get a decent bite out of cheese and beans. 

But these tacos are meaty and satisfying. 

Although they use an Asian-inspired sauce, I think they would work with a good taco seasoning and guacamole.

22. Mushroom Pulled Pork

It’s amazing how realistic this “pork” is.

Use king oyster mushrooms in order to get the right shred. I would suggest baking until they start to crisp, for extra texture. 

When smothered with BBQ sauce and served in a bun with a good slaw, nobody will know the difference.

23. Creamy Spinach and Mushroom Gnocchi

This might seem like a fancy dinner, but using store-bought gnocchi means it comes together in 20 minutes!

The creamy garlic sauce is the perfect coating to the soft, pillowy gnocchi.

And since this dish is made in one pan, cleanup is a breeze as well. It’s a total win-win!

24. Wild Rice and Mushroom Soup

Warm your belly and soul with a hearty bowl of this wild rice and mushroom soup.

It’s thick, creamy, and full of savory flavors. I suggest making a double batch so you can enjoy it for lunch throughout the week.

Serve it with crusty bread on the side to soak up all the delicious goodness.
