A mushroom is the fleshy, spore-bearing fruiting body of a fungus, typically produced above ground on soil or on its food source.
Many varieties of mushrooms contain good-for-your-bladder selenium and, like us, they produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Oyster mushrooms are a good source or iron. Plus, they’re low in calories.
How to use…
Edible mushrooms come in all shapes and sizes and there is a great deal you can do with them in cooking, from simple dishes using just mushrooms to using them in a range of sauces and meals.
