Mushrooms are culinary vegetables that can add flavor and texture to your meals. Numerous recipes require mushrooms, but these edible fungi are either loved or hated, and substitutes can come in handy.
Mushrooms can be substituted with a variety of plants and non-meat-based options. Some options may change your recipe and others, may have little impact on your meal. Mushrooms can be substituted with zucchini, sun-dried tomatoes, eggplant, garbanzo beans, potatoes, tofu, onions, cilantro, tempeh, or vegan meat.
