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.
