Show Your Heart Some Love with Mushrooms

February 1, 2016

The month of February is all about the heart – as we celebrate Valentine’s Day and American Heart Month. With heart disease listed as the number one cause of death in the United States, February is a good time to assess the foods you consume to help keep your heart healthy. One simple tip for your ticker: trim calories and fat from meat dishes by blending meat with mushrooms. Mushrooms are naturally low in calories, fat free and cholesterol free, and still add delicious flavor.

In celebration of this heart-focused month, we’re sharing dishes to make hearts happy – from romantic appetizers for two to hearty meals for the entire family.

Pepper Burrito “Bowls”

Meaty portabella mushrooms take the place of meat in these vegetarian pepper burrito bowls. Brown rice and beans make a healthy yet satisfying addition to the filling.

Lamb Ragout

This one-pot ragout is an easy family meal or romantic entrée for two. Mushrooms blend seamlessly with ground lamb, extending portion sizes and boosting flavor.

Roasted Mushroom Parsnip Soup

What’s cozier than curling up with a big bowl of soup? This creamy soup by Chez Us is rich, smooth, and believe it or not, doesn’t contain any dairy.

Repost @marthastewart For simmered-all-day richness in a hot minute, pull out the pressure cooker or Instant Pot. 🍜In this warming red-curry stew, butternut squash melts into tender, mouthwatering chunks while mingling with mushrooms, shallots, curry paste, and coconut milk.
