My Greengrocer gives me stuff they'd have to throw out otherwise (I know, awesome right?!). Today it's a big bag of button mushrooms (maybe 2lb) that I have to use tomorrow at the latest. They're completely fine but not spanking fresh, so something cooked...

I also got a pineapple, grapes, a perfect avocado and a few peppers, extra points for including any of those too!

I made a mushroom curry yesterday using a pound and a half of mushrooms. It's nothing spectacular but it's nice comforting food :D

Ing:
1 onion,
2 cloves garlic,
1 can chopped tomatoes,
1.5lb mushrooms, sliced.
1 tbsp tomato puree/paste
1 can chickpeas (garbanzo), drained (you could really use any beans here I guess)
1 chopped pepper
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
vegetable oil

Method:
Fry onion until translucent, then add garlic and fry for 1 minute. Add chopped tomatoes and spices and a bit of salt, and cook for 2-3 mins. Next, add the rest of the ingredients and 2 tbsp water. Put the lid on and simmer for 10-15 minutes until it's all reduced. Serve in bowls with pittas/naans/etc, or with rice.

That mushroom curry sounds tasty!

This clam-free chowder recipe is amazing. It calls for oyster mushrooms, but I've made it with regular mushrooms (white and crimini), and it's still delicious. I've even used more mushrooms than the 1/4 pound the recipe calls for (gasp!).

i just made mushroom bean burgers from 1000 vegetarian recipes that were pretty good. the recipe makes between four and six burgers, but i'm sure you could make a bunch and freeze them if you wanted to use up all the mushrooms. you just cook a diced onion and whatever spices you like with about 5 ounces of chopped mushrooms, and then mix that with about a cup and a half of cooked beans (mashed up). i added rice flour until the mix was stiff enough to form into patties, and then i broiled them for five minutes on each side, but you could pan-fry them or whatever. they stay soft like a gardenburger, but they hold their shape, and they're tasty. put grilled peppers and avocados on them! have fruit for dessert! all items consumed!

Not a recipe, but dehydrated mushroom chips are delicious to munch on.

Isa's mushroom stroganoff recipe is awesome: http://www.theppk.com/2008/10/1010/

I'm sure you could use all button mushrooms instead of the creminis and portabellos.

I'd make a mushroom stir fry to serve over grilled and herbed polenta. Just sautee the mushrooms in EB and/or EVOO with some garlic, onion, salt & peppa and add some fresh chopped parsley at the end and spoon over polenta.

When I have too many mushrooms to use up before they go bad, I freeze them and use them later in vegetable stock.
You could use the mushrooms and peppers in a fajita filling and serve with slices of the avocado, or make guacamole out of it to top them with. Serve with a side of refried beans, or add seitan strips or soy curls to the fajitas.
You could use the mushrooms, peppers, and pineapple in a sweet and sour type dish. I'd add tofu to that and serve over rice.
Mushroom risotto is the best thing ever, especially when cooked with some white wine.
Mushrooms really shrink a lot when cooked, so you probably don't have as much as you think you do.

You could always just dry them in the oven and rehudrate later or pulverize and use as super flavourful instant mushroom seasoning.

Mushrooms cook down. It's no problem for me to eat half a kilo (more than 1 pound) of mushrooms at once if they are sautéed.

the mushroom soup from the "fields of greens" cookbook is amazing. I couldn't find the recipe online, but on the off chance you have the cookbook, I'd recommend it.

I saw this recipe that VegNews sent out in an email yesterday for Mushroom Bourguignon. I'd like to make it in my week off over the holidays:

You are so lucky. I would make mushroom barley soup. I don't know why, but I tend to always make that when I buy to many mushrooms during a shopping trip. Bittman's HTCEV has a great recipe.

It is! I got it off the website of a Japanese company that produces mushrooms in Japan.

I thought it was cute and also, maitake are just incredibly delicious. I wish they were sold here as well.

In the end I was having a busy day so I roasted them with onion and thyme while I got on with other things. Then I put them on top of pizza dough and baked it. Yummy.

I agree. I often make it Superbowl Sunday, even though I don't care about football.

I'm in Germany and we do not have much variety with mushrooms. There's only button mushrooms, oyster and lately also shiitake. And rarely king oyster.

But no maitake, shimeji, enoki or portobellos :(
