Mushrooms in the News: 11-03-17

Coverage this week ranges from school nutrition and foodservice news to healthy, fall-themed recipes.

Produce Retailer Blog touted The Blend as a possible way to reduce food waste, noting that “Sodexo is a proponent of the Blended Burger Project, which blends finely diced mushrooms into burgers and found that kids ate more and threw away less.”

KSBY spotlighted BBP Campus Edition participant, Cal Poly, in a recent broadcast segment. “Our regional chef has asked us to participate and of course we couldn’t resist, it’s a perfect opportunity,” says Ken Kline, Campus Dining Executive Chef.

On the recipe front, Serious Eats provided in-depth instructions on how to perfectly roast mushrooms, while blog My Fitness Pal posted a roundup of “5 Hearty Mushroom Recipes Under 400 Calories.”
