Mushroom Recipes ♥ Alphabet of Vegetables

Including Portobella (also Portabello) Mushrooms

[A Note from your "Veggie Evangelist": So yes, I know the mushrooms aren't actually vegetables. But fungi / mushrooms are so central to a healthy, plant-based diet that I choose to be expansive in my definition of vegetables for A Veggie Venture. After all, nobody questions calling tomatoes vegetables, even though they're really fruit. That's how I feel about mushrooms!]

Early Greeks and Romans are thought to be among the first to cultivate mushrooms. There are literally thousands of varieties of this fungus. Mushroom size, shape and texture vary tremendously and colors can range from white to black with a full gamut of colors in between. The cap's texture can be smooth, pitted, honeycombed or ruffled and flavors range from bland to rich, nutty and earthy. The cultivated mushroom is what's commonly found in most U.S. supermarkets today. However, many people – including close friends of ours who belong to the Missouri Mycological Society! – school themselves in identifying and foraging edible wild mushrooms.
