How about some fungi with your dinner tonight!
One cup of crimini mushrooms provides a good, very good, or excellent source of 18 different vitamins, minerals, and antioxidant phytonutrients. To maximize their flavor and the retention of their nutrients it is important to not to overcook them. That's why (WHFoods) recommends healthy sauteing crimini mushrooms for just 7 minutes to bring out their best flavor while maximizing their nutrient retention.
Health benefits: immune system support, anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, aid in cardiovascular health and the list goes on.
I recommend getting at least one serving of fungi in each week. They are easy to throw in salads, eggs, or on top of a burger. I love these tasty and easy appetizers.
Crab & Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms
from the kitchen of Mike Brown, brother-in-law & Crossfit Des Moines owner
8 oz low fat or fat free cream cheese (I used half of each as I like the creaminess of low fat)
1 package of crab meat
1/4 C parmesean cheese
1 tsp minced garlic
Take the stems out of the mushrooms and chop up. Saute stems with olive oil and a teaspoon of minced garlic. On the side mix up crab meat, 8oz of cream cheese, 1/4 cup parm cheese, black pepper.
Once the sauteed mushrooms have cooled,add to mixture. Take mixture and fill the mushroom caps and cook 350 for 20 mins.
I wonder how these would fair at a tailgate :) GO CYCLONES!!!
Until next time...
look good, feel good, do good
