Mushrooms with Mediterranean Tuna Dip

Contributed by: News Canada

Marvelous Mushroom Pairings

Lean white fish. Mushrooms and fish may not be the first thing you think of but once you taste this fabulous flavour pairing you'll be happy you discovered it. Poached in a little white wine or fish stock, lemon juice and herbs, sliced mushrooms add oomph to nutritious lean white fish such as sole, haddock and tilapia.

Mushrooms with Mediterranean Tuna Dip
Polenta. Top grilled polenta with a generous spoonful of fresh sliced or chopped mushrooms, sauteed in some olive oil or butter and tossed with fresh herbs such as thyme, salt, pepper and a smidgen of sherry or balsamic vinegar. Divine.

Rice. There is nothing so elegant yet so comforting than a steaming hot bowl of creamy fresh mushroom risotto.

Whole wheat pasta. What could be easier than cooking up a bowl of hearty whole wheat pasta? Tossing some cooked, sliced mushrooms into the pasta or even the tomato sauce adds a bonus of satisfying meaty texture and appealing taste.

Sandwiches and Wraps. Sliced fresh mushrooms give lovely crunch and a flavour boost to sandwiches and wraps. In fact, a grilled Portabella mushroom makes a great sandwich "filler" itself! Just layer the mushroom between two slices of whole grain bread and top with some cheese, herbed mayonnaise or some more fresh vegetables.

Soup. Make canned soups more interesting and more nutritious by adding sliced fresh mushrooms. Simmer for a few minutes to soften the mushrooms if you wish.
