Whole Grain Linguine with Mushrooms, Brussels Sprouts & Thyme

If you’re interested in trying your hand at making vegan dishes but aren’t sure how to start — try experimenting with oyster mushrooms. Their meaty texture and earthy flavor makes them an ideal substitute for meat. Plus, they perfectly complement to the nuttiness of whole grain linguine.
