On the recipe front, Good Housekeeping posted a Roasted Mushroom Parmesan Sandwich and Crispy Mushroom and Muenster Sliders.
The New York Times article “What is the Health and Nutritional Value of Mushrooms?” (which cites the Council) appeared in print this week.
We wrapped up our first Blenditarian Challenge this week. The five winning posts included their blenditarian twist on a classic recipe, while also sharing why they’ve taken the pledge:
