Create delicious, healthy meals with one simple ingredient – mushrooms.
Research shows that people who eat mushrooms have better diet quality and increased intake of some nutrients1, making them the go-to ingredient for delicious family meals.
It’s never been easier to use mushrooms to transform meals, starting with those that may already be in the weekly rotation. Simply chop mushrooms to match the texture of ground meat – beef, pork, chicken, turkey (or tofu) – and use in place of some of the meat in recipes such as burgers, tacos, meatloaf, lasagna, pasta sauce, or meatballs to make every day dishes more healthful and delicious. This technique is referred to as The Blend.
This simple blending strategy plays on mushrooms’ compatibility with meat in terms of taste and texture. All you have to do is:
- Chop up your favorite mushroom variety to match the consistency of the ground meat;
- Blend the chopped mushrooms with the ground meat;
- Cook your mushroom-meat blend to complete the recipe.
No extra pans. No complicated techniques. Just great tasting food with a healthy twist.
Optional: Prior to chopping, roast mushrooms for 10-15 minutes to enhance flavor. Cool, then chop and blend.
Watch as Chef Bill Briwa from the Culinary Institute of America demonstrates how easy it is to use The Blend to make your family favorite recipes healthier and tastier.
