If you’re looking to add some umph to your weeknight suppers, or pizzazz to your holiday entertaining menu – look no further than fungi. Yup, mushrooms. Mushrooms are loaded with vitamins, minerals and fiber. Mushrooms.ca has a plethora of recipes that will satisfy everyone’s tastebuds and bellies. My fam’s favourite is: Cheeseburger Pizza from BlendAndExtend.ca By blending chopped mushrooms with Ontario ground beef, you add an additional serving of vegetables to your dish; lighten up classic dishes such as: spaghetti, tacos and burgers (just to name a few); and extend the volume of your dish = extend portions. As the mom of two active and very hungry boys, wife of the rep soccer coach, and avid runner myself, extended portions are a must in our home. We are one hungry bunch. I was delighted to share a few of our family favourite recipes from Mushrooms.ca & BlendandExtend.ca on CHCH Morning Live (click here to watch the live segment). I encourage you to visit both sites and explore all the amazing, flavourful and good-for-you recipes.
