Delicious Vegan Mushroom Recipes to Enjoy With Your Family
Nothing like starting dinner off with tasty paté smeared onto crunchy bread. Like the traditional recipe, this is still high in protein but a much healthier version. A versatile spread that can be eaten with crackers, chips, or even in sandwiches in place of traditional mayonnaise.
While we’re on the topic of appetizers, we’re going to guess you’d never thought you’d see ceviche on this list? Even at first glance, this mushroom version of the classic Peruvian dish looks like the real deal. If you have trouble digesting raw mushrooms, you can always par-cook the mushrooms before adding them to the mix.
Feel free to add in other ingredients such as avocado, crushed nori, or even tomato juice.

4. Garlic Mushroom Kebabs
Another great vegan mushroom recipe to always have at the ready: mushroom kebabs. Effortless and flavorful, it’s a dish you can serve it as a side or an appetizer as they complement almost any meal perfectly.
The magic is in the marinade. While 15-20 minutes is the suggested time, try preparing this early to really let the flavors soak into the mushrooms. Great on the grill or roasted in the oven.
5. Creamy Coconut & Mushroom Quinoa Soup
Mushroom soup is a classic mushroom dish yet the problem for vegans is that the majority of recipes require either cream or chicken stock. This recipe scratches that itch while still being creamy, flavorful, and loaded with healthy ingredients compared to more traditional alternatives.
It’s very simple to prepare and the creamy texture is certainly on-point with typical mushroom soup recipes. We also like the addition of coconut milk for its creaminess alongside its natural sweetness. Think of it also as an option for your fruit smoothies and breakfast bowls if you’re trying to lower your sugar intake.
6. Warm Balsamic Mushroom Salad With Pine Nut Parmesan
We all know salads are a great way to instill a huge nutritious boost into your everyday diet. This is a salad recipe that serves not just as a side but can be a meal all on its own. One added benefit of using mushrooms in your salads over meat options is the huge health upside.
A cup of mushrooms only contains around 5 milligrams of sodium and is great if you’re monitoring your blood pressure or heart health.
7. Maple Dijon Portobello Burgers
If you’re like us and love burgers, we encourage you to give mushroom burgers a chance. This recipe takes advantage of the meaty, smoky, and chewy characteristics of the portobello variety and does wonders in place of a meat patty.
When choosing your mushrooms for this recipe, make sure to select ones that are firm and bigger than you think you’ll need because they’ll shrink during the cooking process.
8. 5 Ingredient Easy Mushroom Tacos
I’m sure all vegans cry a little bit inside every time the phrase “Taco Tuesday” is celebrated all over social media on a weekly basis. No need to worry though because tacos can be vegan friendly with this painless recipe that only requires 5 ingredients. While a great source of folate and protein, you may even eat less with the high water content. Mushrooms can fill you up quicker and even longer than you think.
9. Vegan Sticky Apricot Mushrooms
Another great recipe to turn to when you’re looking for a vegan friendly of a classic such as orange chicken and rice. The key here is in the amazing 7 ingredient marinade. We like marinating the mushrooms in the morning and having them ready to roast off as soon as we’re ready to eat dinner.
We’re sure this marinade would work wonders for non-vegan variations of this recipe as well.
10. Biscuits And Mushroom Gravy
Biscuits and gravy are one of those classic flavor combinations that just go hand in hand. Just a few changes to the traditional biscuits and gravy recipe give all vegans a chance to taste this amazing pairing. The true star of this dish is the luscious and flavorful gravy which gets its creaminess from a base of almond milk, vegan butter roux, and vegetable stock.
This recipe is great in terms of timing since while the biscuits are baking away, you’ll be finishing the gravy about the same time they’re finished. We think this is comfort food personified.
