How to cook Mushrooms

Dry-fry them in a pan before adding to pasta, or slow roast and season with garlic and parsley for a tasty starter. Mushrooms are also delicious in risottos, stir-fries, sauces, casseroles and pies; or fried and served on toast for breakfast.

READ: 10 reasons we love mushrooms



Mushrooms are a fungus and there are thousands of (known!) varieties. Due to their meaty texture and super-umami flavour, they’re often used in veggie and vegan dishes as a tasty alternative to meat. Some farmers grow certain species of mushroom in caves because they’re dark and always cool – the ideal conditions for many mushroom varieties.



Mushrooms are in season over the autumn, mainly from September to November.



Mushrooms are often covered in soil. Use kitchen paper or a brush to get it off, but don’t wash them under the tap, as they will absorb the water and become soggy.

What are the health benefits?

Mushrooms are a great source of essential B vitamins, which help our metabolism function so we can utilise the energy and nutrients from the food we eat. Just 14 button mushrooms or 3-4 heaped tablespoons of mushrooms count as one of your 5-a-day (one portion of veg or fruit is 80g raw weight).
