Let’s talk about mushrooms. Not only are mushrooms a completely underrated vegetable, but they’re usually playing the supporting role in every dish rather than front and center, where they belong.
This goes without saying, but mushrooms and tahini are a magical combo. The earthy, nutty notes of tahini pair so beautifully with mushrooms’ meaty and rich flavors. We believe it’s time we pay homage to the fungi. So, we’re serving up 6 irresistible mushroom recipes that put mushrooms (and tahini!) in the limelight.
This Tahini Miso Ramen with Crispy Tofu is not your average ramen. Soom Tahini gets added into the broth, which adds a slight viscosity and wonderful depth that elevates this traditional dish.

To take this meal even further, double the amount of mushrooms used to give the dish extra depth.

You’d be surprised it takes less than 10 ingredients to reach this degree of effortless sophistication.
