The best way to bulk up any meal is to add mushrooms to the mix. #JoinTheBlendTrend by replacing part of the meat in any dish with mushrooms. You could try this with my recipe for cottage pie or simply make these amazing mushroom rolls. Mushrooms are an umami-rich, healthy vegetable. They are nutrient dense adding potassium, B-vitamins and antioxidants to your dish.

Head straight on to the recipe for Mushroom Rolls ♥

When tasked by the South African Mushroom Farmer’s Association to come up with a recipe to #JoinTheBlendTrend I knew immediately I would make mushroom rolls. The aim here is to replace 50% of the meat in a traditional recipe with mushrooms. This blendability results in a variety of benefits including adding taste to a dish. For my alternative to sausage rolls I went with the lighter option of phyllo pastry instead of butter rich puff pastry. You could make these mushroom rolls completely vegetarian by just doubling up on the mushrooms and omitting the meat.

  1. I love mushrooms but I do wish there were more varieties available in Australia. We basically have the button and large field mushroom available. Occasionally in the southern states they may see a wider variety because the temperature is more conducive. I suppose I can’t have it all.

  2. I forget about mushrooms as a meat substitute but I shouldn’t. There is a nearby vegan restaurant that makes “chicken wings” from mushrooms and a delicious mushroom “burger” sold in our grocery. You inspired me to saute an entire pan for use this week.

  3. I love mushrooms and this looks like a great way to enjoy them! And just in time too for when all the fall mushrooms will be available at markets here in Europe.

  4. OMG! Great pictures. I could eat these rolls right off the screen. I love mushrooms, but have never thought about adding them to rolls. The health benefits are incredible. Is there a particular type of mushroom you use? or would recommend? Love this recipe…yeah!!

  7. Nice recipe, Tandy. Suits carnivores like me and vegetarians like my youngest. 🙂
    Can I point out the typo on number 10? (Can’t help myself, I do some editing.)

  8. Agreed on the mushrooms! And they are so good for you. I used to not be a fan but as like you say they “bulk up a meal” I feel I must add they to my diet. And my husband loves them so I will have to give this yummy recipe a whirl!
