Mushroom Mania

Mushrooms are delights offering us more than just the white button variety. Try these portobello and shiitake mushroom recipes and see what the fuss is about.

Mushrooms are magical delights offering us much more than just the common white button variety. While I enjoy cooking with the button variety, there are other mushrooms that are wonderfully flavourful and extremely good for our health.

All mushrooms are an excellent source of potassium; they also add fibre to the diet and provide a rich source of selenium, which helps protect cells of the body from free radical damage. Shiitake mushrooms in particular have been reported to boost immunity, fight infection, and inhibit tumour growth. Now, how to make them taste terrific? These recipes, featuring shiitake and portobello mushrooms, will show you it’s really quite easy!
