Who loves Mushrooms?

Thoroughly heating them releases the nutrients they contain, including protein, B vitamins, and minerals, as well as a wide range of novel compounds not found in other foods

When mushrooms are cooked, the content of polyphenol and antioxidant activity increases significantly, and there are no significant losses in nutritional value like some other cooked vegetables.

Mushrooms have very tough cell walls and are essentially indigestible if you don’t cook them.

Raw mushrooms and raw mycelium may pose health hazards from harmful pathogens— potentially causing red blood cell damage gastrointestinal irritation and allergic reactions, such as skin rashes.

Recipe:

  • 1 lb of Button Mushrooms Cleaned
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic peeled
  • 3 T veggie broth
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • Chopped thyme or parsley

Instructions:

  • Preheat over 400 degrees f
  • Stir mushrooms with garlic and broth. You may mince a few and leave the rest whole.
  • Spread them out on a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Roast about 20 minutes mix half way.
  • Garnish with more fresh thyme.

Enjoy!
