The Health Benefits of Mushrooms
Want to learn about some of the health benefits of mushrooms? Of all the superfoods, I think mushrooms have got to be my favourite. Cooked properly, they have a tremendous substantial, meaty texture and, aside from their great taste, mushrooms have many health benefits. Mushrooms reduce cholesterol, stimulate your immune system, prevent cancer, and provide an excellent source of vitamin D. The potent compounds in mushrooms act as prebiotics, promoting optimal gut health. They are also high in potassium which supports the body in regulating blood pressure.
I love to sautée mushrooms with avocado oil, on high heat with a pinch of salt and black pepper, adding garlic powder just before serving on whole-grain toast, with rice or on a veggie burger. They are also excellent roasted or marinated. They taste great in stews or soups like this Easy Creamy Vegan Mushroom Soup Recipe below. Give it a save and try it. You’ll like it!

Chop the mushrooms and add to a medium stock pot with two tablespoons of water. Sautée mushrooms until they release and evaporate all of their liquid. Continue adding water to prevent it from sticking.
Add the stock powder and flour and stir until combined.
Add the water and plant milk along with the salt and vegan cream.
Bring to a simmer on a medium heat, then lower and cook for 5 minutes.
Using a stick blender or a blender, blend the soup until creamy with no lumps remaining.
