Meatless Monday

 Mushrooms has always been one of my favorite dishes. Especially a mushroom blend with shiitake, cremini and  white button sauteed with Garlic Grape seed oil and shallots or onions.
Served on Garlic toast or with sauteed spinach. 

Today at the Summer Fancy Food Show I once again came across a grow your own oyster mushrooms in a box kit For about $20 I could purchase a kit add water to the box and store out of direct sunlight and in 10  days cultivate fresh mushrooms. The Back to Roots kit are available at some healthy food stores and online. 
If you are looking for variety try this science project site Enasco.
Mushroom are very low in calories. One cup of button mushrooms has just 15 calories, while 1 cup of Portobello mushrooms has 22 calories. Mushrooms are also a fat free food, have no cholesterol , less than 1% of your daily value of sodium and small amounts of protein, carbohydrates and fiber.
Mushrooms may be small but nutrition facts prove that they have plenty of vitamins and minerals. One cup of mushrooms includes vitamins C, D, B6 and B12, plus large doses of riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid. The vitamins C, B6 and B12 found in mushrooms are responsible for boosting your immune system. This helps flush toxins out of your body that could compromise your immune system.
