I love mushrooms and used to think that even though they were delicious, they did not offer much nutritional value. I am happy to say that I was wrong.

Many varieties of mushrooms are a great source of Selenium and all varieties provide a host of essential nutrients. Mushrooms are the only plant source that makes bone-loving Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight.

I used Cremini mushrooms in this recipe, which is an adult version of White Button mushrooms that help improve immune function.

In addition, mushrooms contain antioxidants and assist in metabolic processes.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbl. olive oil
  • 8 oz. cremini mushrooms Sliced
  • 2 large Leeks, Sliced, white part only
  • 1 cup risotto dry
  • 4 to 6 cups water
  • 1/2 cup white wine, (optional)
  • 1/2 cup Kelly's Croutons Vegan Parmesan
  • 1 Tbl. Reduced Sodium, Better Than Bouillon

Directions

  1. In a high-sided saute pan, heat oil and cook mushrooms and leeks for 4 minutes, or until leeks are slightly translucent and mushrooms lightly browned.
  2. Stir in Risotto and toss until coated with oil.
  3. Add Better Than Bouillon to hot water and stir. Add 1 cup at a time to pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  4. Cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until risotto is tender.
  5. Stir in White Wine (optional) and vegan parmesan. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Optional: Top with sliced fresh tomatoes.
