Mushrooms-based dishes are a show-stealer at every vegetarian spread. Spongy and delectable, mushrooms are a treat in preparations both mellow and spicy. They blend and absorb the flavours very well. Mushrooms are also very popular with kids; they may run away from their bowl full of veggies and greens, but they are most likely to tuck into a dish made with mushrooms. They are fairly easy to cook with too, provided you clean them well in advance.
