Who doesn’t love a hearty bowl of chicken wild rice soup?! That’s what inspired me to make this simple, healthier wild rice and mushroom recipe — it makes for a hearty main or fulfilling side. Thankfully R&R Cultivation grows, cultivates, and sells their local mushrooms at a variety of indoor markets and online during the cruel Minnesota winter season. I’m lucky to have a great partnership with them!
This recipe is a perfect side dish for the fall - winter season, or over some rice or soba noodles as a meal. The creamy, garlic-y sauce makes this dish a winner. I actually used nut pods dairy free cream in this dish, but you are welcome to use regular cream, full-fat coconut milk, vegetable stock, you name it!
These oyster mushroom tacos will make you rethink Meatless Mondays! Golden, crisp oysters are nestled on top of a simple, homemade chipotle mayo and warmed corn tortilla. Grilled poblano peppers and corn are transformed into a smoky salsa and give these handheld treats a beautiful pop of color on top — a perfect summer recipe using seasonal, bright ingredients.
Cooking with mushrooms is a healthy, economical, and delicious option if you’re wanting to eat vegetarian, vegan, or simply reduce your meat intake! This article includes some facts about mushrooms, different varieties that are on the market, and some scrumptious recipes for Mushroom “Crab” Cakes, Savory Crepes, and simple sautéed Lion’s Mane.
The beauty of mushrooms is that there are countless ways to enjoy them. If you’re a purist, a quick sauté in some butter or olive oil and a sprinkle of salt may be all you need to whole heartedly enjoy an entire plate to yourself (no judgement). I did just that to a beautiful Lion’s Mane Mushroom, which I might as well just start calling “Lobster Bites.”
Savory Crepes with Oyster Mushrooms, Arugula, & Goat Cheese are bound to be your new favorite brekky! Delicious fresh oyster mushrooms are sautéed and combined with lightly dressed arugula, perfectly scrambled eggs, and creamy goat cheese, all wrapped up in a tender homemade crepe.

R&R Cultivation is excited to share that as of March 2019, we have officially moved out of Nick’s basement and into a warehouse! We needed to seriously scale up our production to meet the demand of our upcoming summer markets. This season, we’re already registered at 20 different Twin Cities farmers markets.
Since launching R&R Cultivation in the late summer of 2018, we have encountered tremendous success selling at farmers markets across the Twin Cities. We started our journey at the St. Paul Farmer’s Market, which was an amazing experience. My entire family surprised me at one of our first markets, which was a total blast.
These will be en exciting next few weeks! I am slated to start selling my gourmet mushrooms at the St. Paul Farmer's Market starting in the middle of September and extending into multiple winter markets. I also have the capacity to take online orders and offer free shipping locally inside of the Twin Cities.
