Wild Mushroom Pizza with Arugula & Pecorino

Wild Mushroom Pizza with Arugula & Pecorino Recipe
Make no mistake, this healthy pizza recipe is all about the mushrooms; lemon oil and arugula add just enough citrus and spiciness to accent without overwhelming.

Wild Mushroom & Polenta Casserole

Wild Mushroom & Polenta Casserole Recipe
In this vegetarian polenta casserole recipe, the choice of cheese is as important as which wild mushroom you use. Morel or hen of the woods (maitake) mushrooms give a more “meaty” experience, while chanterelle or cremini mushrooms will have a milder flavor. The polenta recipe calls for rich, nutty Taleggio or fontina cheese, but you can also use a good-quality washed rind cheese like Brie or Gouda.
