Yes, pizza sauce is indeed a real product. Some may scream "Sellout!" while others may exclaim "Genius!" — the former perhaps a passionate home cook who insists on doing everything from scratch, no matter how long it takes, and the other a casual cook with more of a laissez-faire approach to the kitchen.While it's probably an exaggeration to say that any home cook fits either one of these archetypes 100 percent of the time, it's safe to say that for most people, the answer is "It depends." What are you in the mood for?I was in the mood for the cheater's way out the night I made this, I confess. And having never evaluated this particular product before, I was curious to see just how it would taste. To be honest, it really wasn't that bad. Perhaps a bit salty, but nothing heinous. And if you don't want to use ready-made pizza sauce, go ahead and use your favorite homemade recipe.See all mushroom recipes.Click here to see Bake Me a Pizza as Fast as You Can.

Prepared medium rare, ahi tuna is a real delicacy, so make sure you buy sushi-grade fish from a quality purveyor. You might think “fresh” tuna is the best option, but when fish is flash-frozen after it’s caught and remains that way until you thaw it for cooking, it will retain quality and be safer to consume at rare or medium-rare temperatures. Excerpted from Sheet Pan Paleo (Ulysses Press, 2016) by Pamela Ellgen.

Entrées include meat-free dishes like Mushroom-Eggplant Lasagna and meaty meals like portobello mushrooms stuffed with sweet sausage because truly, mushrooms play well with so many ingredients. We consider them culinary chameleons.
Almost all mushrooms available at supermarkets are cultivated, not wild, and are available year-round. The most common varieties of cultivated mushroom are mild-tasting white button, flavorful cremini, earthy portobello, savory shiitake, and delicate oyster. These are the mushrooms that the recipes you'll find in the slides ahead are built on, but there are a few dishes that star the more expensive and harder to find chanterelles and porcini.
When you're buying mushrooms, look for firm, smooth, and dry caps. Avoid damp, pitted, or dried-out mushrooms. And when you get home from the market, refrigerate loose mushrooms (unrinsed) in a paper bag. If you purchased containers of mushrooms, store them in the refrigerator in their original packaging. Use mushrooms within a few days of purchase.
Also, it's important to know that it's a myth that you shouldn't wash mushrooms when prepping them. Because they are absorbent, they shouldn't be soaked, but quickly submerging them whole in a bowl of cold water cleans them more effectively than wiping them with a vegetable brush or damp paper towel. Swish the mushrooms their grit will drop to the bottom of the bowl. Lift them out, lay them on a clean kitchen towel, and blot to remove excess moisture. Then you're ready to get cooking with our best mushroom recipes!

10 of the most common mushroom types
1. White button mushroom
Also known as: able mushroom, cultivated mushroom, button, table mushroom, and champignon mushroom.
Agaricus bisporus is an edible mushroom which has two color states while immature – white and brown – both of which have various names. When mature, it is known as portobello mushroom.
White button mushroom is the immature and white variety. It’s the most common and mildest-tasting from all the mushroom types.
90 percent of the mushrooms we eat are of this variety. Its flavor is mild, and that makes it more versatile. It can be eaten either raw or cooked and works well in soups, stews, salads, and on pizzas.
2. Crimini mushroom
Also known as: when immature and brown, Agaricus bisporus may be known as Cremino mushroom, Swiss brown mushroom, Roman brown mushroom, Italian brown mushroom, classic brown mushroom, or chestnut mushroom.
Criminis are young portobello mushrooms, also sold as baby portobellos, and they’re just more mature white button mushrooms. Crimini and white button mushrooms are interchangeable. They are similar in shape, but may be slightly bigger in size and darker in color: crimini have a light shade of brown.
3. Portobello mushroom
Also known as: field mushroom, or open cap mushroom.
Mushrooms of this variety are as wide as the palm of your hand. Portobello mushrooms are dense in texture and have a rich taste. In Italy, they’re used in sauces and pasta and make a great meat substitute. Also, if you want a bread bun-substitute, you can even use the mushroom's flat cap. They’re perfect for grilling and stuffing.
4. Shiitake mushroom
Also known as: Shitake, black forest, black winter, brown oak, Chinese black, black mushroom, oriental black, forest mushroom, golden oak, Donko.
Shiitake are mushrooms that grow mainly in Japan, China, and Korea, which is one of the reasons they are so predominant in Asian cuisine. In Japanese, shiitake means ‘oak fungus,’ but these days most shiitakes are cultivated. They have a light woodsy flavor and aroma, while their dried counterparts are more intense. They are savory and meaty and can be used to top meat dishes and to enhance soups and sauces. Shiitake can be found both fresh and dried.
5. Oyster mushroom
Also known as: Pleurotus, tree oyster, angel's wings, pleurotte en huître, abalone mushroom.
Oyster mushrooms are a species of Pleurotus and they can be found in the wild, growing on the sides of trees. Nowadays they’re some of the most commonly cultivated edible mushrooms in the world. The king trumpet mushroom is the largest species in the oyster mushroom genus.
They are simple to cook and offer a delicate and sweet flavor. They’re used especially in a stir-fry or sauté because they are consistently thin, and so will cook more evenly than other mushrooms.
6. Enoki mushroom
Also known as: Enokitake, enokidake, futu mushroom, winter mushrooms, winter fungus, golden needle mushroom, or lily mushroom.
Enoki mushrooms are available fresh or canned. Experts recommend consuming fresh enoki specimens with firm, white, shiny caps, rather than those with slimy or brownish stalks that are best avoided. They’re good raw and they're common in Asian cooking. Because they're crisp, they hold up well in soups and go well in salads, but you can also use them in other dishes.
7. Chanterelle mushroom
Also known as: Golden, yellow, chanterelle, egg mushroom, girolle, pfifferling
Chanterelles are among the most popular species of wild mushrooms. They are orange, yellow or white, meaty and trumpet-shaped. Because they're difficult to cultivate, chanterelles are usually foraged in the wild. They're common in many European cuisines, including French and Austrian, and are also native to the United States.
Some species have a fruity odor, others a more woody, earthy fragrance, and still others can even be considered spicy. They are delicate in flavor and texture, work well fried or sautéed in butter, oil or cream. You can use them as a starter topping, on bruschetta or you can combine them with eggs. They also go well in soufflés, cream sauces, soups, or pasta.
There also are black trumpet mushrooms, also known as black chanterelle, horn of plenty, or trumpet of the dead. Black trumpets have a rich, smoky flavor and notes of a black truffle mushroom when dried.
8. Porcini mushroom
Also known as: Porcino mushroom, Cèpe, bolete, king bolete, borowik, Polish mushroom, Steinpilz, stensopp, or penny bun.
A meaty mushroom similar to the portobello, the porcini are mushroom types often used in Italian cuisine. Its flavor has been described as nutty and slightly meaty, with a smooth, creamy texture, and a distinctive aroma reminiscent of sourdough. Fresh porcinis aren't as easy to find in the United States, but dried ones are easily reconstituted by soaking in hot water for at least 15 minutes before cooking with them. They’re good sautéed with butter, ground into pasta, in soups, risottos, and in many other dishes. They are also one of the few mushroom species pickled and sold commercially.
9. Shimeji Mushroom
Also known as: Several species are sold as shimeji mushrooms, including buna-shimeji, and bunapi-shimeji.
Shimeji should always be cooked: it is not a good mushroom to serve raw due to a somewhat bitter taste. Its bitterness disappears completely when cooked, and the mushrooms turn slightly nutty in flavor. This is one of those mushroom types that works well in stir-fried dishes, in soups, stews, and sauces.
10. Morel Mushroom
Also known as: morchella.
Out of all the mushroom types, these distinctive fungi have a honeycomb appearance on their cap. Morels are prized by gourmet cooks, particularly in French cuisine, because they are super savory and delicious. Due to difficulties in cultivation, commercial harvesting of wild morels has become a multimillion-dollar industry in the temperate Northern Hemisphere, in particular in North America, Turkey, China, the Himalayas, India, and Pakistan, where these highly prized fungi are found in abundance.
One of the best and simplest ways to enjoy morels is by gently sautéeing them in butter, then season them with salt and pepper. They are a little chewy and taste great. Serve them with meat and poultry, or add them to soups, or in pasta fillings.
Spinach and Ham Quiche
Mitch Mandel and Thomas MacDonald
Quiche is one of those rare dishes that's acceptable to eat at any time of day. Enjoy it at breakfast, lunch, dinner, brinner, brunch. Or just cut a wedge and enjoy it as a savory snack. Ham gives a nice salty punch to this quiche recipe that's made with spinach and your choice of Swiss or gruyère cheese—or both because really quiche isn't one to subscribe to rules.

These simple sauteed mushrooms are a mouthwatering side dish! I use a mix of mushroom varieties to make this recipe extra-flavorful and fun to eat.
Sauteed mushrooms are so simple, yet so flavorful at the same time. They’re the perfect example of how when you use good-quality, plant-based ingredients, you don’t need to add much to make something delicious.
Mushrooms have an intense umami flavor on their own, so I highlight it with a splash of tamari and tangy rice wine vinegar. I’ve always liked mushrooms, but only when I started cooking them with tamari and vinegar did I completely fall in love. Now, I use these ingredients almost anytime I have mushrooms in my kitchen (see here, here, or here). They really punch up the rich, savory flavor of the mushrooms, and they take these simple sauteed mushrooms to a new level.
Once the sauteed mushrooms are deeply golden brown, I toss them with minced fresh tarragon as a final finishing touch. If you ask me, tarragon + mushrooms are a match made in heaven, but feel free to use this sauteed mushroom recipe as a blank canvas. Nix the tarragon and cook the mushrooms with minced rosemary, thyme, or sage, or garnish them with fresh parsley. Instead of vinegar, deglaze the pan with white wine, or add butter for extra richness. You really can’t go wrong here. Enjoy!
Sauteed Mushrooms Recipe Tips
- Don’t wash them, wipe them! If you wash the mushrooms under running water, they’ll become water-logged, and they won’t brown as they cook. Instead, wipe them clean with a damp paper towel.
- Use a variety of mushrooms. While this recipe will work with just cremini mushrooms, I highly recommend seeking out a mix of mushroom varieties. Each one has a slightly different shape, texture, and flavor, which adds complexity to these simple sauteed mushrooms and makes them fun to eat.
- Don’t move the mushrooms for the first 2-3 minutes. When the mushrooms first go in the hot pan, don’t move them for the first couple of minutes. This way, they’ll get a nice golden brown sear, which adds rich flavor to the final dish.
- And after that, move them only occasionally. Sauteed mushrooms are best when their edges are nicely browned, which results from consistent contact with the hot cast iron. If you move them too much, they’ll soften before they have a chance to brown in the pan.

There are so many ways to serve these mushrooms! Here are just a few of my favorites:
6 recipes for mixing and matching mushrooms
After my boyfriend and I do our bi-monthly grocery store run, our fridge is full of mushrooms. Usually, we have button or cremini mushrooms, but this last time, we got silvery-gray oyster mushrooms (my favorite), shiitakes, trumpet mushrooms, enoki mushrooms and a singular maitake.
We love 'em: crisped up and covered in spices, chopped and cooked down into a delicious sauce, or gently floating in soup. The best part is mixing and matching them for different recipes. For the below links, feel free to use whichever mushrooms you want to vary the flavors and textures. Looking for more mushrooms? Head to our Recipe Finder.
