Mushrooms

Calzone

Dinner, Pizza, Vegetarian

Uh-oh…this calzone shouldn’t be a calzone.

Nope. It totally should be a picture of a pizza…topped with layers of ricotta, melted mozzarella, cubes of roasted butternut squash and broccoli rabe. That was the plan.

This pizza was supposed to convince me that broccoli rabe isn’t this gross, bitter leaf situation…well that failed. I tried. It was blanched, sautéed with garlic, seasoned it…even paired it with something like the butternut squash to offset its disgustingness. Didn’t work. It’s just gross.

I was gonna post it anyway, thinking some of you lunatics actually might like it…but I dunno…looking at the pictures of the pizza bummed me out, so I decided to turn the leftover ingredients (from the pizza) into something more awesome!!

Meet this calzone…

Mushroom Tacos w/Roasted Tomatillo Salsa (and other stuff)

Dinner

Welcome to my experiment!! Wait, don’t leave; it’s not a food experiment, like, on you or anything. I wouldn’t do that. Let me explain…

I have food allergies. You’re allergic to a food thing or two, right? Please say I’m not the only one who feels like Macaulay Culkin in My Girl.

My current allergy list kinda sucks–sure it could be worse, but there’s a few bummers. My body turns on me when I eat things like truffles (sad!), all bleu vein cheeses like, gorgonzola, roquefort, stilton, etc. AND…sometimes mushrooms.

My body sometimes hates mushrooms…and sometimes it’s cool with them.

Usually I don’t take chances because I don’t really feel like dealing with some embarrassing twenty-minute sneezing situation. But yesterday…I was feeling brave.

And guess what?! My body totally loved these tacos. Which means your non-allergenic, normal body will too!

Mushroom Bruschetta

Appetizers, Snacks

You know that meditation part in a yoga class when you’re only supposed to concentrate on your breathing?

Yeah, I’m really bad at that part. I always get distracted and think about the randomest of things. Like really random stuff. A few days ago I thought about the following:

#1. Step-by-Step! Do you remember that show? All I can remember is that weird intro with the beach next to the roller coaster. Who thought that was a good idea?!

#2. How grateful I am that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back on! I love how Nene pronounces the word “expensive.” It’s amazing.

#3. Umm…Sweet Potato Tater Tots! Yeah, I made ’em and failed. But don’t worry because I’m gonna make them work. Any tips? I’m open.

#4. And bruschetta…but with mushrooms instead of tomatoes. Tomatoes are SO last season. Literally.

Umm…do you wanna make Mushroom Bruschetta with me? Of course you do!

You’ll need mushrooms. I used a mix of cremini and white button mushrooms. You can use just white buttons ones if you want. It’ll still taste awesome.
