Leo loves mushrooms, but I am not a fan, so I had no idea how to cook them. He has so few favorite foods and I don’t want to turn him off of anything by cooking it badly, so I had to learn. According to Fine Cooking, sautéing mushrooms over high heat evaporates their moisture quickly so they brown nicely and are flavorful. These mushrooms are easy to make alongside dinner and have, so far, been a hit.
If you like dim sum, you’ve probably had Lo Mai Gai, which is glutenous rice, chicken, mushrooms, and Chinese sausage wrapped in a lotus leaf and steamed. This recipe for the filling is easily accomplished in a few minutes if you have a pressure cooker and can find Chinese sausage at an Asian market.
This was another of Guy’s solo-parenting sheet pan suppers. Combine Italian turkey sausage, sliced packaged polenta, cubed butternut squash, and sliced mushrooms on one sheet pan, and bake.
Guy did some solo parenting while I was on a recent business trip, and he had zero problems getting dinner on the table. For this dish, he made four mini meat loaves seasoned with barbecue sauce and surrounded by broccoli, halved cherry tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, and green beans.
