Do you need to wash mushrooms before cooking them?

Before you start making your stuffed mushrooms, you need to clean your mushrooms, right?  But, how do you clean mushrooms?  Mushrooms absorb water, so rinse them right before slicing them. Be careful not to wash them until you really need them or they will turn slimy.  
 
Cooking with mushrooms really boosts the nutrition of your meals.  Check out my post about healthy meals with mushrooms for more information.

I have worked very hard over the last 10 years to make sure that my kids are open to new foods and flavors. One of my hugest pet peeves is seeing kids that will only eat chicken fingers and French Fries! Getting kids started young with bold flavors helps ensure that your child will grow  up to be an adventurous eater!  

Do you have to peel button mushrooms?

Those little white mushrooms up there are called button mushrooms.  They are great for making homemade stuffed mushrooms!  You may not even have to wash them before you use them since cultivated mushrooms are usually very clean. If they aren’t overly dirty,  just wipe them with a kitchen towel or rinse briefly and dry before use. Do not peel them. Then, you can leave the mushrooms whole or slice as necessary.

 

So, my husband wanted to try a vegetarian  stuffed mushroom recipe. We do a fair amount of vegetarian and vegan cooking, although we do eat meat as well. I just like to try and limit our dependence on animal products.

Since we put a fair amount of work into our appetizer, we chose to go with something simple for the main course. I marinated salmon fillets in Lawry’s Santa Fe Chili Marinade…or I should say my son did. Just 30 minutes of marinating a then we threw it on the grill. The combination of the smoke from the fire and the bold flavor of the marinade gave our meal a wonderful twist! Check out Epicurious for more vegetarian appetizer recipes.
