  • Wide pot
  • Small pot with lid


  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1 yellow onion peeled and thinly sliced
  • pounds mixed mushrooms
  • cup mole poblano
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Quick-pickled onions:

  • 1 small red onion sliced paper-thin
  • 1 jalapeño sliced thin
  • ¾ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt

For serving:

  • Microgreens or cilantro or minced scallions
  • Cooked white rice


Cook the onion and mushrooms:

  • Heat the oil in a wide pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often, for 8–10 minutes until both the mushrooms and the onion are deep golden brown—season with salt and pepper.

Add the mole:

  • Add the mole, water, and maple syrup if using. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 25–30 minutes until thickened—taste and season with salt and pepper.

Cook the rice:

  • While the mushrooms simmer, prepare the rice according to package instructions. Keep warm until needed.

Prepare the quick pickled onions:

  • Combine the onion and jalapeño in a mason jar. Bring the apple cider vinegar to a boil on the stovetop and add the sugar and a pinch of salt. Boil for 5 minutes. Pour into the mason jar. Transfer to the refrigerator until needed.

To serve:

  • Divide the cooked rice between plates and pile the mushrooms on top. Garnish with microgreens, cilantro, or scallions. Spoon the quick-pickled onion and jalapeño on top. Enjoy!
