Celebrate Summer with Grilled ‘Shrooms!

July 1, 2018

Rising temperatures + summer holidays = the perfect time to grill out with friends and family. It’s no wonder that July is National Grilling Month! Need a fresh recipe to share with your guests at your next backyard get together? We’ve got you covered. Up your grilling game with savory mushrooms. Whether served up as a fresh and filling side or chopped finely and blended with ground meat, mushrooms are sure to add an umami boost to any party menu.

The grill is a mushroom’s best friend when it comes to both flavor and nutrition. Grilling adds a smokiness that enhances the mushroom’s natural meaty flavor, and it can make this already-healthy vegetable even more beneficial. Research shows that, compared with other cooking methods, grilling boosts mushroom’s antioxidant activity and helps our favorite fungi retain more of its nutrients*. That’s what we call a win-win! So fire up the grill, and get cooking.
