These beets and mushrooms are a great side dish – or one of your twelve dishes for Sviata Vecheria. It works for summer as well as it does for Christmas. Bright and colourful. Make-ahead and served cold or at room temperature. It’s easy and no-fuss.
With morel mushrooms in season, it’s time for this simple recipe – easier to make in a pan than in the Instant Pot because I’m using fresh mushrooms. For a dried mushroom recipe for winter, check out Instant Pot Pidpenky – Dried mushrooms with gravy. This side dish has cream with dill and green onions. Serve it with roasted meats, perohe or egg noodles.
This traditional recipe works with any kind of dried mushrooms – morels, cepes, or shiitake. And, using the Instant Pot saves more than an entire day of soaking time. If you want to forgo even that hydration time, use fresh mushrooms like cremini.
These beautiful little boiled dumplings (also known as tiny varenyky and ooshka) are filled with tasty mushrooms and dill. The first recipe I’m adding that doesn’t use the Instant Pot! Boiling isn’t recommended in there. But, we’ll save time by using pre-made dumpling wrappers.
