Out With The Old, In With the ‘Shrooms: Holiday Recipes

November 1, 2020

Traditions are great, but this year has been anything but traditional. Since 2020 holiday celebrations will likely look much different, why not shake up the typical holiday recipes too? 

Mushrooms add flavor, texture and a certain je ne sais quoi other ingredients just can’t offer. Level up your classics like stuffing, gravy and meatballs by simply adding ‘shrooms.

Why trust your holiday dishes to mushrooms? 

  • They’re versatile. Mushrooms can be used in meaty dishes, vegetarian dishes, hot dishes, cold dishes and more. Plus, they come in many varieties so you can pick the perfect flavor profile and texture to complement your dish. 
  • They’re healthy. The holidays are a time to indulge but mushrooms add a rich, meaty texture while being fat free and low in calories so you can put even more on your plate.
  • They’re tasty. Mushrooms add a rich, umami flavor to enhance your favorite savory dishes. They’re also good at absorbing flavors to enhance the taste of whatever you’re cooking up.
