Mushroom Swiss Sandwich Melts with Arugula

Mushroom Swiss Sandwich Melts with Arugula by Alison's AllspiceIs any body else on a total mushroom kick right now?  I am just realizing that my last two recipe posts also had mushrooms in them, Two Potato Hash with Mushrooms, and Mushroom Lentil Bolognase.  Mushrooms are the kind of food that you either love or hate, and I love them.  In my opinion, they are best when sauted, like in today’s Mushroom Swiss Sandwich Melts with Arugula recipe!

Small Batch Veggie Lasagna

Small Batch Veggie Lasagna - Alison's AllspiceBack when I posted my Lentil Loaf recipe I told you all that meatloaf was a favorite food of mine as a child.  Well, my other favorite food was lasagna.  Mom would always ask us what meal we wanted to have for our birthdays, and I always chose lasagna.  Now I make a veggie version, and I love this small batch veggie lasagna because it only makes 4 servings.  With only two of us in the house, we don’t have to eat lasagna until we are tired of it!

Bean Barley and Mushroom Stew

Bean Barley and Mushroom StewBarley is one of my favorite grains to cook with during the winter.  For a grain, it has comfort food written all over it.  I especially love it in a warm bowl of soup or stew.  When it cooks in a dish like this bean barley and mushroom stew, the starches released make a creamy, silky texture that helps to thicken the stew and make it more luxurious without adding cream.

Mushroom Pecan Empanadas

Mushroom Pecan Empanadas 2Making food from scratch is often times more time consuming.  There are plenty of reasons to do it, however.  The first, and my personal favorite, is that making your own food allows you to control the ingredients used.  You can also make it exactly how you like it, and personalize it for others that you cook for.  This mushroom pecan empanadas recipe is time consuming, but totally worth the effort!

Clam and Millet Stuffed Mushrooms

Clam and millet stuffed mushroomsMushrooms are a great ingredient to work with as a cook.    They are rich and full of umami.  Umami is the flavor of savoriness.   When mushrooms cook, something magical happens.  Their dense spongy material softens and releases so much flavor!  Mushrooms are good so many ways, sauted for pasta like this Ravioli Bake with Spinach and Mushrooms, or in veggie burgers like this Black Bean and Mushroom Burger.  In this clam and millet stuffed mushrooms recipe, I stuff a large mushroom cap with diced clams and cooked millet. So rich and flavorful! Continue reading
