Use these date night mushroom recipes to show your partner, family – or just yourself – some love!

Valentine’s Day is almost here and love is in the air! What better way to spend the evening with the one you love than at home? The stress of making last-minute reservations, finding the perfect outfit, and long-waiting lines doesn’t leave ‘mushroom’ for romance. Besides, there’s truly something special about cooking together in the comfort of your own home.

When designing your date night menu, make sure to add mushrooms! Their warm umami flavor will only add to an already cozy evening. Use our selection of recipes below to get your sweetheart swooning this Valentine’s Day.

#BlenditarianChallenge

Five lucky winners received $250 for participating in January’s blenditarian challenge! Want a piece of the blenditarian pie? It’s as easy as 1) chop, 2) blend, 3) cook.

This month we’re planning the perfect date night – and it involves mushrooms, meat, and a whole lotta love. Show us what you cook for date night – but your challenge is to include The Blend (mushrooms + meat) in the recipe. Create your own dish (or use one of ours) for a chance to win!
