So, if you are looking to shake up your pasta sauce or add a little bit of excitement to your morning omelet, mushrooms may be a great way to add some great “out of the box” flavors to your favorite dishes


S


urprisingly versatile, mushrooms can make their way into almost any dish at any time of day. They can be grilled, stuffed, fried,


breaded, braised, sautéed and even roasted. While many of us have yet to move beyond the button mushroom, there are a myriad of mushroom varieties that are just waiting for you. So, if you are looking to shake up your pasta sauce or add a little bit of excite- ment to your morning omelet, mushrooms may be a great way to add some great “out of the box” flavors


to your favorite dishes. The unassuming mushroom on your grocery store shelf


actually holds the award for attaining a depth of flavor that is not easily achieved by other ingredients. Mushrooms contain a wide variety of flavors that can give your dish a hint of earthiness or add a mellow undertone to almost any recipe. From the meaty shiitake to the floral chanterelle, there is so much to be discovered if you are willing to step outside of your white button comfort zone and dive into the wonderful world of mushrooms.


The House & Home Magazine


There are over 10,000 known types of mushrooms in


the world, and science suspects that we have only found one-third to one-half of the mushroom species on the planet. Out of known species, we are aware of 300 edible mushroom species. However, because growing mushrooms can be difficult, just over 20 are commercially cultivated for culinary inclusion. Edible mushrooms are the fleshy, edible fruit bodies of several species of macro-fungi. They can either grow above the ground and look similar to what you see on your grocery store shelf, or they can grow below the surface and must be dug out by hand. This edible fungus may look strange, and it may seem


odd that an edible food could grow out of some unsavory ground conditions, but mushrooms actually contain many health benefits. For instance, white button mushrooms, such as cremini, help to remove excess estrogen in the human body, and they are now being credited with helping to prevent (or suppress) breast cancer. All types of mushrooms are a great source of the fibers chitin and beta-glucan. These fibers are credited with lowering cholesterol and improving cardiovascular health. The beta-glucan they contain also helps to protect against cold and flu viruses.
