Mushrooms are fleshy fungi with a stem, cap and gills beneath the cap. There are many different edible varieties that can be eaten raw or cooked.
Portobello and Brown mushrooms are mature Creminis, with a larger, open cap, thick juicy texture and distinct flavour. They are popular as a meat substitute due to their larger size and “meaty” texture.
Health Benefits: Mushrooms are a good source of B Vitamins, Selenium, Copper and Potassium. Shiitake Mushrooms have been used in Eastern Medicine for a very long time, and are currently thought by some to help stimulate and improve the human immune system.
