Add Mushrooms to Your Holiday Menu

November 2, 2017

Bring family and friends together this year with these holiday recipes with mushrooms.

The holidays are right around the corner and that means holiday parties! From Friendsgiving potlucks to sit-down Christmas feasts, there is so much cooking to be done this season. Let mushrooms help! When preparing your holiday spread, add mushrooms to the menu. Mushrooms are flavorful, hearty, versatile and nutritious – making them a fantastic addition to menus of all kind.

Going full-vegetarian this year? Hearty mushrooms are satisfying and packed with umami – making them the perfect replacement for meat. Looking to impress holiday guests? Blend chopped mushrooms into traditional meat dishes (we’re looking at you, stuffing) for a “wow” factor that will have everyone asking for your secret (it’s called ‘The Blend’!).

Whatever you’re making, mushrooms can help make your holiday menu one to remember.

    • Boost flavor minus the heft with button mushrooms! Coming in at just 18.5 cals per serving, these umami bombs are every dieter's BFF. Plus, they offer up 15 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin B3, niacin, which promotes healthy skin and digestion. Not too shabby!

#Repost @very_derlicious My latest lunch go-to 🍄Marinated these in some lemon juice, salt, pepper, dill, and broth that I had leftover. Then I pan roasted them on a cast iron skillet for 2 min on the stem side and 5 with the top side down. Not sure the flavors held on enough to make the waiting time and extra dishes for marinating worth it... So the next time I did just the mushrooms by themselves and they were 🤗😋 For lunch I put them on salads or eat them with a little cheese and some sides
