When it comes to antioxidant foods, mushrooms are on top of the list. Not this family of mushrooms, indeed all mushrooms contain antioxidants, which help to fight against free radicals in our body.

Free radicals are not good for your health. They keep disturbing your body all the time. They combine with other unstable similar friends and make clusters and start damaging the body.

Proteins provide us with energy, help us in improving the immune system. If you are in good mood always, proteins and amino acids are behind them. Mushrooms are full of amino acids with giving you the taste at the same time. So, do not wait and consume as much as possible.
  • Boosting your fibre intake. Do you know that mushrooms are a good source of fibre? We all know the importance of fibre to our body. Mushroom can give a boost to your fibre intake. Fibres are good for a healthy heart and also prevent the body from diabetes. Either you have a constipation problem or depression, the mushroom can fix all your issues.

Mushroom can be a good source of vitamin D, iron and potassium, especially during pregnancy. Knowing all this, there isn’t any reason not to eat them.

Meat Substitute

If you are looking for food that is free of animal products, mushrooms can be a good choice for you. We have seen how versatile mushrooms are, especially portobellos. Either their size or flavour, they are the kings in the shroom family.

The texture is almost meaty, dense, and perfectly blends with other vegetables when cooked. So, if you are the one who is looking for a meat substitute, now it’s easy for you to choose. These mushrooms are the perfect substitute for meat. In recent years mushrooms have become more valuable as a functional food, which means providing nutrients and lots of health benefits.

If you love the roasted flavour, you can grill them, like steak. They go well with cheese and noodles and can be transformed into a meal. They are big enough. Yeah!

How to store, Prep, Cook Portobello Mushrooms?

Storage is very important. You need to treat them well before converting them into your favourite dish. You might already know that mushrooms are by nature very clinging, once you will treat them well, then you expect to be rewarded well.

How to store mushrooms

Storing mushrooms correctly is very important. Talking about Portobello mushrooms, they are good to use for a week if kept in the fridge. If you smell or found the mushrooms, turning muddy they have to go in the bin.

If you wanna keep your mushrooms for a long time you can do it. How? The answer would depend upon the packaging of the mushrooms. Plastic-packed mushrooms are all you need to look for, but if you are purchasing them on your own you have to keep them in a paper bag or towel.

In this way, you will have your mushrooms for a longer run.😊

Now let’s move towards the next step; Preparation…..

Storing the mushrooms was the first step in the line the next one is to cut them and eat a lot…

Don’t worry about the flavour, washing doesn’t affect the taste of mushrooms it keeps them clean and good for eating. Just dry them with a paper towel and then eat.

You can also choose whether or not to scrape the gills out (the brown frilly bits underneath the cap). The reason to cut them out is that they discolour the other ingredients, otherwise, there is no additional purpose to cut the gills.

Remember, it’s entirely up to you…
