Vegan MoFo - Mushrooms 3 ways!

Halfway through the alphabet today!  So, in celebration here are three meals that I have made with mushrooms recently - yes, we are do like a mushroom in this house.

Mushroom Tart
I loved the idea of making a mushroom tart & topping it with asparagus but this was disappointing.  You know when you start making a recipe & you know immediately that it is not going to work but you have already committed to it so you decide to keep going anyway?  Well that is what happened here.  I used this recipe & as soon as I started making I realised that the quantities were no way near going to fill a normal size tart so I just added more of all the ingredients in & it just wasn't quite right & the filling was really dry.  The people that I made it for said that they liked it but they were possibly just being polite...

Mushroom Schnitzel
It never occurred to me before to make a mushroom schnitzel but when I read about it on Of the Kitten Kind I thought it was such a brilliant idea.  I used this recipe but mine obviously did not turn out as beautiful & golden as in that picture.  I did like these but I found them a bit boring, I think adding a gravy or turning them into a parma would be a better option.

Mushroom Sandwich
This is something that we eat quite a bit as they are easy & delicious.  This sandwich features tomato chuntney, marinated mushrooms, caramelised onion, tofutti cheese, tomato, baby spinach & avocado.
The mushrooms were enormous so I only needed half in each sandwich & I marinated the mushrooms in a mix of garlic, soy sauce & veg oyster sauce.
These sandwiches were the goods, but normally I prefer to use rolls as the mushrooms make the bread soggy in no time at all.

  1. I love mushrooms too and all three meals appeal to me, especially the tart (I wonder if they didn't really measure in the orig. recipe?)
