DSCN0903 thumb Back to the Roots: Mushroom Bruschetta and a Giveaway!

Back in the day when I was this tall, my parents and I would take off into the beautiful forests in Macedonia and hunt for mushrooms all day long. There was no escape, I was on my way to becoming a mushroom-ivore, like the rest of the fam.

At one point in my life my main meal consisted of a bowl of mushrooms with some honey-mustard dressing. :/

I grew out of that. I learned how to cook.

Now I serve them as a side dish, an appetizer, or a topping of some sorts.

But while I know how to hunt for these babies, I really had no clue that one, I could grow them in my kitchen, and two, I can grow them in my kitchen?!

I’ve never grown mushrooms before! But I have been hearing about mushroom kits for some time now, and when the box arrived, I could not wait to tear it open and see what happens!

Mushroom Kit 2 thumb Back to the Roots: Mushroom Bruschetta and a Giveaway!

    I’m going to keep an eye out for those kits. I have bought large amounts of mushrooms at the farmers market a few times and they seem to go bad before I can use them all. The kit id a great idea. I love the bruschetta too, great work.

    I just read about the mushroom boxes and their use of coffee grinds to grow mushrooms on the WF blog this morning! Great concept. I have never met a mushroom that I didn’t enjoy-great, simple recipe-the best kind!

    Love mushrooms…This is an awesome giveaway!

  131. Oh my gosh. I’m not sure which I want more. My own mushroom grower thingy or that bruschetta. I adore mushrooms, and am the only one in my family that does. Let’s just sit out on the deck with these between us and a nice icy beer and talk about life, ok?

    Beautiful Bruschetta! My husband wants to grow mushrooms, but he hasn’t gotten very far. I need to win this for him.

    I love that idea! So smart! And I have a mushroom obsession as well. There is a stand at the farmers market I go to that just sells mushrooms, so many types of mushrooms! I just seasoned salt them and pan fry them like you did, and devour!
