A delicious and way healthier alternative to the canned 'cream of mushroom' soup that would emerge in a gelatinous blob, often with a questionable-sounding plop? Cauliflower is often considered one of the healthiest foods on earth- and there is good reason why. With its rich supply of health-promoting phyto-chemicals, high level of anti-inflammatory compounds, and ability to ward off cancer, heart disease, brain disease, and even weight gain- it seems there isn’t much cauliflower can’t do. Roasting the mushrooms and cauliflower brings out the best of the vegetables from some time in the oven, deepening the flavors for this quick and hearty soup. Substitute the creme fresh for unsweetened cashew or canned coconut milk.
A super quick, delicious, easy, healthy and filling salad. Edamame beans are high in fiber, ultimately beneficial for your digestion, protein and antioxidants intake. Kale is rich in iron which is essential for the formation of hemoglobin, to help transport oxygen around in the blood, and is also high in fiber. Mushrooms are the only fruit or vegetable which as vitamin D, which we usually only obtain from the sun or correct form of D3 supplements – great now when it is winter and we don’t get enough sunlight. Mushrooms also boost the immune system and have been researched for cancer prevention and treatments.
With its rich, mushroom-studded filling tucked under a layer of soft mashed sweet potato, it has all the hallmarks of a good shepherd's pie, but it's completely vegan — and includes a secret ingredient that adds body and creaminess to the filling, without any cream. Authentic shepherd's pie is a comfort food classic, but there's no room in my diet or grocery budget for a heavy dish of ground lamb or beef and buttery potatoes, except as an occasional treat. Lentils, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes, roasted until creamy-soft, need just a little salt and pepper to be a flavorful topping. This recipe uses one unusual ingredient: steel cut oats! The dry oats — cooked and drained with the lentils — release just enough starch to bind the filling into a creamy, mushroomy mass, rather than a loose scattering of lentils and vegetables. The oats also add a texture somewhat like ground meat, but they aren't noticeable unless you know to look for them, so your guests will have no idea their dinner includes a nutritious breakfast staple. Note: STEAMING the sweet potatoes saves you an HOUR off this recipe plus retains vital nutrients!
The easiest, healthiest, and best veggie dish with bok choy, mushroom and garlic. 3 ingredients + 8 minutes prep time+ 2 minutes cook time. Done! No sweat, and only one pan to clean. Bok choy is crisp, refreshing, nutritious, and the leafy green leaves are loaded with vitamin C. Mushroom is always good, a great protein source so you don’t have to eat meat. Plus, mushroom makes everything better because it contains glutamic acid, a natural, non-chemical version of MSG that makes everything “umami-licious.” You can use any kinds of mushrooms—white, cremini, oyster, enoki, buna, shitake, baby bellas, portobellas, king trumpet mushrooms, etc. All you need for the seasoning is a pinch of salt and you will have a wonderfully tasty veggie dish that goes well with just about anything. If you want to amp it up a notch with additional savory umami flavor, splash in a dash of liquid Coconut Aminos or wheat/gluten free Tamari - both are an excellent substitution for Soy Sauce (which I don't recommend). Feel free to top this off with
Nutritious, high-protein, low-carb, gluten-free breakfast or snack made in a muffin pan with only 6 wholesome ingredients. Baby Bellas (Cremini) mushrooms are ideal for this recipe. You can substitute any high-fat nut milk of your choice or goat's milk (my personal preference for these little delights) instead of using the heavy cream. Feel free to add other "quiche-friendly" sautéed veggies including bell peppers, asparagus, and leeks. Nitrate-free canadian bacon from a reputable brand (Applegate Farms of Niman Ranch) is a great addition meat lovers.
The ultimate "one-pot wonder", this creamy, hearty pasta dish is the ideal answer to "What's for Dinner" when you don't have much time to cook. All you need is 20 min. There is absolute no pre-cooking or sautéing of any kind here. Simply throw everything into the pot, including the uncooked traditional pasta and that is it. Substitute heavy cream for goats's milk or full-fat coconut milk (the canned cooking type, not the beverage). Amp up the superfood elements by adding more veggies! NOTE: For a gluten-free option, cook rice pasta separately and rinse prior to topping with vegetable medley. Adjust the vegetable cooking liquid accordingly.
A complete meal packed with savory flavor and essential nutrients. The flavor combination of green beans and mushrooms pair well together. Roasting vegetables seems to concentrate their flavors and make them even tastier. Farro is a really nice whole grain due to its earthy nuttiness and the chewy texture. For folks who are eating gluten-free, you can use brown rice instead or substitute for quinoa, amaranth or buckwheat. The balsamic vinaigrette and feta brighten this dish with the perfect acidity. An excellent vegetable side dish everyone is sure to love!
Edible mushroom varieties contain a number of valuable nutrients, including protein, enzymes, B vitamins (especially niacin), and vitamin D2. About 100 species of mushrooms are being studied for their health-promoting benefits, and about a half dozen really stand out for their ability to deliver a tremendous boost to your immune system. They've even been studied for their ability to prevent cancer. Adding this "Roasted Mushroom Base" to your recipes increases flavor and heartiness. Its an excellent method to boost the umami flavor factor in dishes. The flavor "umami," which means "delicious" in Japanese, is valued for making foods taste meatier and more satisfying. Umami is the natural flavor of glutamic acid, which, in your body is often found as glutamate; eating umami-rich foods may increase post-meal satiety, helping you eat less throughout the day. You can crumble this into soups, stews, burgers, meat sauce, or pretty much anything you want taste "meaty". The mix will keep for about 4 days in the refrigerator.
