Did you know mushrooms are a delicious way to keep your heart healthy? They can be a perfect ingredient to “beef” up almost any recipe.
Clinical dietitian Jamie Walker, RDN, LD, shares some of the reasons she loves using mushrooms in her cooking:
- Mushrooms contain a taste sense called umami, which is savory, hearty and “meat-like”. This makes them a heart-healthy and budget friendly way to enhance meals.
- Mushrooms are a good source of potassium and B vitamins.
- They are a great addition to stir fries, rice dishes, pasta dishes, sauces and omelets.
- Mushrooms are readily available in most grocery store produce sections. When buying, choose firm mushrooms with even color and rinse right before using.
