Health Benefits of Mushrooms
Mushrooms are packed full of minerals and vitamins - like copper, potassium, magnesium, zinc and a number of B vitamins.
They are delicious too, packed with meaty umami flavours and yet incredibly low in calories, and carbs. When it comes to varieties, there are a plethora of options, each offering their own distinct flavours and textures.
Simple Mushroom Recipes
Cooking mushrooms is super simple and quick. By driving away their natural moisture and caramelising the mushrooms over a high heat, you concentrate and amplify a mushrooms flavour, leaving you with something of a flavour bomb. These flavours are earthy, meaty and deeply savoury, making mushrooms a perfect replacement for meat in many vegetarian dishes. Included in our list below are seven (out of eleven) vegetarian mushroom recipes, perfect for meat free days or those of you who don’t eat meat at all. Similarly, within meat dishes, mushrooms can support and boost the meaty flavours in the dish, while lessening their calorific load.
