15 Must-Try Mushroom Recipes

Let’s put a cap on the mushroom jokes (last one, we promise!) and get to why these fungi are actually health food all-stars. The umbrella-shaped veggies are a great source of potassium, which is vital for muscle health and recovery while also lowering blood pressure and decreasing the effects of a high-sodium meal. Plus, noshing on ‘shrooms may also help protect you from breast cancer. According to a study published in the International Journal of Cancer, consuming 10 grams or more decreased breast cancer risk by almost two-thirds! Now that’s impressive.

Still not sure how to incorporate more of these low-cal, fat-free fungi into your diet? Well, you can start by choosing Portobello from the grocery store when you can’t decide. This particular variety contains the highest vegetable source of inflammation-fighting vitamin D. And researchers at the University of Florida discovered that people who munched on just four ounces of cooked mushrooms every day for four weeks showed increased immunity. Is it any wonder why ancient Egyptians believed snacking on the stuff is the key to a long life? So, go ahead and take a peek at our list of mouthwatering mushroom recipes to help you turn back the clock—and for more ways to eat your way to a better you, check out these 18 Health Foods with Big Beauty Benefits!
