Mmmm – mushrooms! I’m excited to be a guest in the Mushrooms Canada kitchen today sharing a “Blend & Extend” recipe featuring mushrooms and Ontario Beef. I’ve actually been mixing mushrooms with my ground beef for a while now – it’s a great way to add an extra serving of vegetables to dishes that tend to be meat-heavy (think meatloaf, tacos, burritos, meatballs etc…).
Finely chopped mushrooms look similar to ground beef so they blend in seamlessly – it’s easy to make classic ground beef dishes healthier (and tastier!) by adding mushrooms. Mushrooms and beef are also a powerful combination, providing important nutrients and antioxidants. One of my favourite “make ahead” meals is a layered tortilla pie – kind of like Mexican lasagna with corn tortillas in place of pasta. I’ve come up with a version using mushrooms and beef for the Mushrooms Canada blog today.
