6 Varieties, Recipes and Fungi Facts to Celebrate Mushroom Month

It’s our favorite month of the year: Mushroom Month! To celebrate, here are a few fungi facts to remember why we have “mushroom” in our hearts for nature’s hidden treasure:

  • Mushrooms are full of umami – the fifth basic taste after sweet, salty, bitter and sour. Umami is derived from the Japanese word meaning “delicious.”
  • From crunchy enoki to meaty portobellos, mushroom varieties offer a range of flavors and textures.
  • Mushrooms are the only source of vitamin D in the produce aisle. One serving of UV-exposed crimini mushrooms can provide you with 1086 IU of vitamin D.
  • All mushrooms deliver beneficial nutrients such as copper, selenium and B vitamins, but did you know that different mushroom varieties offer different health benefits?
  • Mushrooms are gentle on the planet: Up to one million pounds of mushrooms can be grown on just one acre of land.
  • Mushrooms + Meat = The Blend – one of the easiest ways you can make your favorite meals more delicious, nutritious and sustainable.

What’s your favorite mushroom variety and recipe? The six recipes below each feature a different variety – try them all this Mushroom Month!
