Mushrooms are incredibly nutritious. They’re rich in B vitamins, bursting with antioxidants, packed with fiber, and the only plant-based source of vitamin D. They are also packed with prebiotics, championed in scientific studies as part of a gut-healthy diet. And yes, they’re the key to incredible satisfying dinners. Simply put, mushrooms are umami bombs. They make any dish deeper, bolder, and more savory. It’s why portobellos, shiitakes, and creminis are so often used in hearty dishes — like these satisfyingly-filling mushroom dinners.

1. Healthy Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff from Bowl of Delicious

Greek yogurt provides the creaminess and just a touch of tartness, but when it comes to overall taste, this recipe is all about the intense meatiness of mushrooms. Pasta never had it so good.

3. One Pan Chicken and Mushroom Farro from Well-Fed Soul

An ancient grain with a terrific chewy texture and plenty of nutrients, farro adds comforting heft to the chicken and mushrooms. Since mushrooms love their green veggies, pair this dish with some simple roasted broccoli, broccolini, or Brussels sprouts.
