Four pink mushroom recipes for a good cause!3

Posted on October 27, 2011 by ChristieFood News

Earlier this month I created a pasta recipe to support the Mushrooms Go Pink campaign whereby Australian mushroom growers aim to donate $50,000 to breast cancer research from proceeds of mushrooms sold in pink containers. Have you seen them at your local supermarket or green grocer?

I’m not the only one though. Other bloggers have helped to inspire you in the kitchen with some truly mouth-watering mushroom recipes. Their brief was to create a ‘pink’ mushroom dish and they could interpret that by using pink ingredients such as beetroot, bacon, salmon etc or simply by styling the photograph with pink props.

I’m pleased to say that all four (including me!) rose to the challenge of using pink ingredients – and with some great results. Simply see the collage of photos above for some rock-solid evidence.

Let’s work clockwise around the collage and be sure to click through to their blogs to view the full recipes and their individual stories about how breast cancer has affected them and/or their loved ones.

There’s still time (until 31st October) to go and grab yourself some mushrooms in pink containers and support this great cause for a cure for breast cancer. Do your part and enjoy cooking with mushrooms!
