How To Make Quinoa with Mushrooms

Using mushrooms to substitute meat in a recipe isn’t new. In fact, these edible fungi are among the best alternatives to pork, beef, or chicken, since they’re packed with similar nutrients. On top of that, this superfood’s umami flavor could really make for a mouthwatering dish, without the guilt of course. So, discover different dishes to try with these vegetarian mushroom recipes and start your meat-free journey at your own pace. Starting with hearty vegetarian lasagna to whipping up meatless meatballs, there are a handful of options to choose from.
