Mushrooms in the News: 10-31-2022

Prominent registered dietitians recently called out mushroom nutrition and versatility in high profile national articles. Beth Stark in Eating Well’s “10 Vegetables You Should Be Eating Every Week“ article noted “Mushrooms contain fiber, potassium and multiple B vitamins including niacin (vitamin B3), riboflavin (vitamin B2) and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5). Additionally, mushrooms are a source of ergothioneine, an amino acid that acts as an antioxidant and is associated with multiple health-promoting benefits including lower risk of cancer.” In the Washington Post, Ellie Kreiger in her “This Creamy Mushroom Soup is Lush, Smooth and Dairy Free” recipe article said, “Besides the wealth of B vitamins, potassium and health-protective compounds in the mushrooms, the soup gets its creaminess not from cream, but from being pureed with cannellini beans, which — in addition to essential minerals, fiber and more — deliver enough protein to make it a meal in a bowl.”

Better Homes & Gardens shared multiple mentions of mushrooms this week: Designer Barry Dixon included mushrooms in multiple dishes for his classic Christmas dinner, which paired well with another article that included a recipe to turn leftover stuffing into a nice mushroom strata. They also offered up a recipe for a Mushroom & Goat Cheese flatbread as an appetizer in a separate article.
