We are mushroom lovers in this family. Stuffing, sauteing, baking or raw with a dip. Any which way they come are fabulous. They are so healthy for you. The only thing I do not recommend is eating them from your yard unless you are a mycologist.

I like portabellas - those are high in selenium.

mushrooms are very good for you. I was following the Dr. Fuhrman Eat to Live program for a bit and that was one of the things you should eat every day. even if it is just one. Guess they have many cancer fighting properties and pretty much a great food all around! Keep eating mushrooms!!!

Oh My those recipes sound yummy! I have never tried the portabello mushrooms, but I am going to try the stuffed one and also the grilled mushroom pizza.

Per calorie they're quite nutritious; per volume cooked, they're not much ... so eat a lot!

I like to give them a quick scrubbing and then coat lightly in salt, pepper, perhaps a few other spices, just a hint of olive oil, and put on a baking pan about 375F for about an hour. They shrivel a lot and get chewy. Turn occasionally so they don't stick or burn. Quite meaty, for those who want that texture or flavor.

I grill the large portobello shrooms instead of burgers

I googled "mushroom nutrition facts."

They are: low in Saturated Fat and Sodium, and very low in Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin C, Folate, Iron, Zinc and Manganese, and a very good source of Vitamin D, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Pantothenic Acid, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Selenium.

I use baby bella mushrooms whenever a recipe calls for mushrooms, and they do have some protein. 3oz has 3g of protein, and also some potassium and smaller amounts of calcium and iron. The white buttons have similar stats, I just like baby bellas because they have tons more flavor.

I LOVE mushrooms! They do have protein and fiber, some more than others. I like portobello mushroom pizzas. I make them on the grill during the summer months, but you can mkae them in the oven too. just clean out the under side of the mushroom and add pizza sauce and any other "pizza" items you like. Sprinkle with low fat cheese and grill on med heat or bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
I add mushrooms to almost everything I eat.

I am wondering if mushrooms have much nuitritional value. I use white one often sliced in salads,in pasta sauce, stir-fries, grilled with steak or burgers, but aI just like them.I know they are low cal but do they actually have any nuitritional value?
