Holy mushrooms! Mushrooms on mushrooms topped with more mushrooms. Oh yeah, there is some cauliflower in there somewhere too. If you love mushrooms, you’ll like this.
The original recipe calls for seared king mushrooms, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. I opted for a portabella instead. It seemedÂ like it gotÂ the job done. I do plan on making this again when I can find some king mushrooms though.
I served this on a bed of arugula mainly just to add some color. But the slight crunch seemed to compliment the cauliflower puree pretty well. The shiitake “bacon” topping is a must for this too. It obviously doesn’t taste like bacon, but it gives a similar texture andÂ salty punch that bacon has. I’m not a huge bacon lover anyway so this was a great alternative.
So not only is this super tasty, butÂ see how awesome this looks (if you like mushrooms)!
The recipe link has great instructions and photos that help in putting this epic fungi-liciousness together.
