Mushroom Love Goes Pink

Mushrooms Go PINK in October

October is a beautiful month for several reasons. Leaves are beginning to change color, the weather turns cool and crisp and comfort food finds its place at the table. As we embrace the beauty that surrounds us, we also take note of a very important message for October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the month of October the mighty mushroom becomes more than an ingredient at your table, it becomes part of a message for hope.

Through an annual $50,000 donation to City of Hope, a leading cancer research center, the Mushroom Council supports their research on breast cancer and mushrooms. In total, the council has donated more than $800,000 through the years. You will also notice a new color in the produce aisle this fall as mushroom tills “go pink” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Our featured recipe tab is filled with six recipes to put those fresh new mushrooms in your kitchen to good use. You can find even more inspiration on our collaborative “Mushrooms for Hope” Pinterest board with City of Hope and by following along with the #Fall4Mushrooms hashtag.

Mushroom Cheesesteak Stir Fry

Dine and Dish turned a sandwich staple into a stir fry meal perfect for a transition into fall comfort.

Mushroom Cheese Steak Stir-Fry by Dine and Dish

One of my all-time favorite restaurants in Kansas City is a casual dining place that features a sandwich called the Zephyr. The Zephyr is a version of a cheesesteak sandwich, with tender bell peppers, flavorful onions, strips of sirloin steak and a provolone cheese “sauce” that pulls the sandwich all together. In addition to the traditional cheesesteak ingredients, the Zephyr has sautéed sliced mushrooms on it that makes it divine. This sandwich contains several of my favorite ingredients, all cooked together in one amazing sandwich.

School is back in session and as I do every August, I am craving simple dinnertime solutions. I decided to turn my favorite sandwich into a simple stir fry for school nights. It’s all the goodness of The Zephyr sandwich, with the simplicity of a plate of stir fry. Topped with a creamy cheese sauce, this is one favorite you’ll be coming back to time and again!
