Karl’s Teriyaki Shitaki Mushrooms

Miriam and Chris love any kind of mushroom. I saw some fresh shitaki mushrooms while I was buying my Chrysanthemum greens. I decided that they would be perfect for barbecuing with my teriyaki sauce.

Karl’s Tofu and Oyster Mushrooms

I am making a pepper and salt roast chicken and I wanted a side dish. The kids really like mushrooms so I chose oyster mushroom. The mushrooms are fairly pricey so I am stretching the dish by adding tofu.

Karl’s Tarragon Mixed Mushrooms with Meyer Lemon

Everybody in my family, except Eilene, loves mushrooms. She doesn’t like the texture. This leaves me with three options when I use them in cooking.

Karl’s Yankee Come Home Pot Roast

“There’s no place like home.” Click-click
Dorothy

Nothing will bring an ex-pat back home faster than a desire for the cooking of home. Miriam and Chris have been doing a lot of traveling recently, so I have not done a Sunday dinner in several weeks. This is my variation on a Yankee pot roast.

Karl’s Persian Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms

This is a side dish that I made to go with my Persian feast. I do not know if any Persian would come up with this dish. I am simply using Persian ingredients in a way that pleases me.

Karl’s 40 Clove Garlic Chicken with Mushrooms

It is a constant challenge to make my meals meet all of my family’s food preferences: low fat, keto, soft food, yes mushrooms/no mushrooms, not to mention various allergies. Most of the dishes that I am planning for this Sunday are a bit bland, so I thought that I should make at least one with some kick to it.

Karl’s Sautéed Leek Greens with Mushrooms

I decided to use the tops of the leeks I was using for my Fishyssoise in a separate dish that Chris, my son-in-law, would eat. He also really likes mushrooms and bacon as well.  Making a dish out of these three things fits his keto diet and I wouldn’t mind eating it as well.

Karl’s Vegetarian Lasagna

Adapted from a Cook’s Illustrated recipe

A friend of ours had a reoccurrence of her cancer, an all too familiar event in our lives. She is so sick that it is hard for her to cook, so I am making one of my mitzvah lasagnas. When a person is on chemo they tend not to be concerned with eating. I unfortunately know this from personal experience.  This dish is designed to tempt you into eating at least a bite or two to keep body and soul together.

Karl’s Beef with Chive Stem and Oyster Mushrooms

The challenge this weekend is reconciling Jan’s diets and a guest’s Ketogenic diet. Jan has to eat low fat because she is missing her gall bladder. A keto diet eliminates most carbohydrates and emphasizes protean, oils and roughage to force your metabolism into ketosis. These diets are polar opposites.
