After a month of indulging with cookies, eggnog and all of the fixings, there is no better time to take control of 2014, than with a healthy and delicious meal plan!
Mushrooms are well-known as a hearty replacement for meat, but they can also serve as the perfect partner by replacing a portion of meat in a dish with finely chopped mushrooms. Whether you’re preparing pasta, tacos or a stir-fry you can easily makeover your meal with mushrooms with our simple tips below.
- Leverage mushrooms as a topping or side in your favorite dishes. Pan Roasted Mushrooms pair perfectly with eggs in the morning and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.
- Combine mushrooms and meat for the best of both worlds. Mushroom Risotto with Bacon and Peas provides a decadent flavor combo in every bite.
- Create a true mushroom and meat blend with finely chopped mushrooms that seamlessly combine with the flavor and texture of ground meat, such as in our Baked Spaghetti recipe below.
