Meatless Monday Made Easy with Mushrooms
We’re big fans of Meatless Monday, or what we like to call “Mushroom Monday.” So, what’s all the hype around Meatless Mondays? It’s a global movement urging consumers to go vegetarian one day per week. Many meatless meals feature mushrooms as the main ingredient, and for a good reason. Mushrooms are rich in umami, an ultra-savory quality (found in many meats) that make meatless meals just as satisfying and full of flavor. Ready to try Mushroom Monday for yourself? We’ve taken the guesswork out of the planning process and rounded up a day’s worth of meals to get you started.
