Dinner Dilemmas Solved with ‘Shrooms

August 1, 2017

Mushrooms make dinner easy in these family-friendly recipes.

School is back in session and fall schedules are hectic! From carpool to homework, soccer practice to ballet, who has time to enjoy family dinner when you are being pulled in so many different directions? Solve your dinner dilemmas with mushrooms.

The Blend, or the act of combining mushrooms with meat, is one guaranteed way to get nutritious vegetables on the dinner table in a quick, easy and tasty way. If you only have minutes to get dinner on the table, prep the blended mushroom and meat mixture ahead of time and store it in the fridge (up to 1-2 days*) until ready to use. This is one simple way to incorporate low-calorie, low-sodium mushrooms into all of your dinner favorites – from burgers and tacos, to spaghetti and sloppy joes.
