Fun Facts about Mushrooms:
- Blend mushrooms with meat dishes to enhance flavour and boost umami!
- Lighten up family favourites like burgers, spaghetti, pizza and burritos by substituting a portion of the ground meat with mushrooms. You’ll cut the calories and boost the nutritional value of the meal. Blending mushrooms with classic meat dishes also lowers the saturated fat & cholesterol content.
- Finely chopped mushrooms look similar and blend seamlessly with ground meat, so classics can be satisfying without losing taste or sacrificing texture. Great for picky eaters!
