Mushrooms are incredibly nutritious. Rich in B vitamins, bursting with antioxidants, and packed with fiber and probiotics, mushrooms are the only plant-based source of vitamin D. They’re also the key to incredible satisfying dinners. Simply put, mushrooms are umami bombs. They make any dish deeper, bolder, and more savory — that’s one of the reasons why portobellos, shiitakes, and creminis are so often used meat-free meals.
