February 1, 2020

It’s February, which means love is in the air and it’s the season for pairing up! While we all know mushrooms are delicious on their own (whether sliced and sautéed, marinated or microwaved, grilled or roasted), they’re even better when they’ve got a buddy.

Since the versatile mushroom pairs well with so many foods, it was hard to narrow down our list to just six pairings. Did your favorite pairing make the cut? If not, let us know which ingredients you love to couple up with mushrooms.

Happy February and happy pairing!
