I love eating mushrooms year round, but there is no denying their place the fall food roster. These great mushroom recipes to make in Autumn are perfect for those leaf color changing, sweater weather days.
Mushrooms are some of the most diverse ingredients. They are earthy, meaty, and packed with umami! If you are the type of person always on the lookout for new and delicious mushroom recipes than this list is perfect for you.
1. Mushroom Risotto
One of the best comfort foods around is risotto. My mushroom risotto recipe uses a 6:1 ratio for one of the most decadent dishes you’ll ever have. While this version uses cremini mushrooms, you can use chanterelles for a more upscale dish.
2. Wild Oyster Mushroom Quiche
Perfect for those fall mornings, this savory wild oyster mushroom quiche is sure to impress at your next brunch party. With meaty oyster mushrooms and a perfect pate brisee crust, this French dish will have your friends asking for seconds!
3. Carpathian Mushroom Soup
This savory soup from Eastern Europe is one of this site’s most popular Ukrainian recipes, as well as being THE most popular mushroom recipe overall. Carpathian mushroom soup is a perfect meal after a day spent foraging in the forest, or just watching the leaves change color.
4. Crab Stuffed Mushrooms
If you are into entertaining as much as I am then you’ll know crab stuffed mushrooms are an hors d’oeuvre staple. These delectable one bite finger foods are great year round, but especially around the fall/winter holidays when you have family coming over you want to impress.
5. Chanterelle Toast
This easy chanterelle toast snack needs only a few ingredients. The trick is to confit the chanterelles so they are so, so rich that they balance the homemade boursin cheese perfectly. This dish is also great on crackers as a canape for cocktail parties!
6. Verpa Bohemica In Shallot Sauce
This delicious dish of verpa bohemica mushrooms in shallot sauce is a great appetizer that goes great with warm, crusty bread. These mushrooms are actually very similar to morels so feel free to substitute morel mushrooms here instead if you wish.
7. Vol-au-Vent Of Whitefish In Shiitake Sauce
This Vol-au-vent of whitefish in shiitake sauce is an absolutely wonderful appetizer that is guaranteed to impress your friends and family around the holidays. With flaky, buttery puff pastry, and savory, umami packed shiitake mushrooms, this seafood starter is a hit. Don’t eat fish? No problem, just fill the ‘vents’ with the shiitake sauce!
8. Pork And Chanterelle Stuffed Zucchini
Stuffed squash recipes are quite iconic Autumn recipes and this pork and chanterelle stuffed zucchini is a great choice. Zucchini always seem to be in abundance, and the easy filling makes it a great weeknight dinner, or a dinner party appetizer.
9. Baked Trout Under Sour Cream And Mushrooms
This is another Carpathian recipe I love to make. The simplicity of dinner from a freshly caught trout is hard to beat, so this baked trout under sour cream and mushrooms is basically an easy one tray meal! The best part is you can use any edible mushroom you want and they all seem to complement the sour cream so deliciously.
10. Wild Mushroom And Goat Cheese Galette
A galette is basically a rustic pie and it can be filled with both sweet or savory ingredients. In this case I use both sweet AND savory! This wild mushroom and goat cheese galette is a super simple recipe that packs a punch of flavor. It also works great as a vegetarian dish with tons of Autumn ingredients like foraged mushrooms, apples, and herbs.
11. Caramelized Onion Meatballs In Mushroom Sauce
Even if mushrooms aren’t the star of the recipe, they still add tons of fall flavor. In the case of these caramelized onion meatballs in mushroom sauce the simple porcini sauce is a great flavor enhancer. The best part about this recipe is people will ask you how you made such amazing and tasty meatballs!
12. Sausage And Mushroom Rotini
Mushrooms and pasta is always a good combination, and this sausage and mushroom rotini is super easy to make. Because you are using flavorful sausage meat you can even get away with using basic button mushrooms. That makes this recipe perfect for those weeknight meals!
13. Mini Mushroom And Onion Tarts
These little mushroom and onion tarts are kind of a scaled down version of the quiche up above. They are perfect as canapes or hors d’oeuvres at cocktail parties, or even just as an amuse-bouche at dinner parties. The best part? They use store-bought tartlet shells so anyone can make these with little effort!
14. Spinach And Mushroom Turnovers
I love making turnovers in Autumn, and these spinach and mushroom turnovers are a great option for a cold weather comfort food. You can use store-bought puff pastry and eat these hot or cold.
15. Sweet Potato Gnocchi In Oyster Mushroom Sauce
Another mushroom and pasta recipe, this sweet potato gnocchi is so good in a made from scratch wild oyster mushroom cream sauce. Fresh pasta is always a treat, and when the dish is this rich and delectable you’ll want to make it again and again. A perfect fall meal!
