Mushrooms are one of those vegetables with a more “meaty” texture. For people looking to cut-back on meat while still keep the taste or texture, try using mushrooms! Sautéing or grilling mushrooms and spices like you would to meat can help give them a similar appeal. This mushroom onion sauté is very savory and tastes great on top of brown rice or quinoa. You could even add in some chickpeas, leafy green vegetables, and avocado for additional nutrient boosts.



  • 1 large onion (cut into moons)
  • 2-3 cups baby portobello mushrooms (sliced)
  • 1 tsp of dried thyme
  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil or vegetable broth
  • Pepper (to taste)
