Hey pixels, we’ve been collecting wild mushrooms!!! It’s fun and relaxing to do… You can enjoy nature and do some exercise. Also, wild mushrooms are great to eat. They can be cooked in a lot of different ways, this is only one of them, I really hope you like it 😉
You can substitute this mushrooms for store-bought ones if you don’t have the chance to pick them up from the forest, so don’t worry about that. But, if you’re pleased with the idea and you’ve started looking for your mountain boots and a basket, please, remember:
- Not all the wild mushrooms are edible. If you’re not sure about one, it’s better not to pick it up, just in case. There are a lot of guides to help you: books, apps….
- Clean them well with a paper towel before cooking them. Hygiene is really important.
But don’t worry, the most important part is having fun in the nature 😉 If you don’t find any mushroom, you always can go to the supermarket (lol)
Ingredients (serves 1):
- wild mushrooms (all you can eat). If you don’t have at home, you can use whatever kind of mushroom you like, don’t worry about that)

- 1 small carrot (you need carrot noodles, I made them with a peeler)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves
- olive oil
Cook the rice together with the garlic cloves for 12-15′
At the same time, cook the onion in olive oil for 5′. Add the carrot and cook 5′ more
Drain the rice and fry it a bit with the vegetables. Add the parsley and stirr
While, grill the mushrooms with a bit of olive oil (please, remember to clean them well first)
Serve together (if you want, you can cook the mushrooms 1-2′ with the rice and vegetables).
Variations: you can use brown rice. Also, you can add more vegetables, like red pepper, broccoli, leeks, kale…. Why not?
