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.
