Nutritious Mushroom Recipes
by Prabhjot Mundhir
'Foods can make or break you' is an established fact. That is why it is important to include the mushroom-one of nature's greatest wonder foods - in one's diet. Some varieties have anti-cholesterol and antibiotic properties. The common variety is full of high quality protein as well as B vitamins. With its irresistible taste, exotic flavour and rich aroma, the mushroom's delicious dishes are a healthy alternative to meat dishes. Keeping Indian tastes in mind, the author has innovated some easy-to-follow recipes.
The book contains recipes on starters, soups, salads and dishes for the main course. Some of the starters and quick stir-fried vegetable dishes of mushrooms are just ideal for tiffin boxes of children, working women and other office-goers. Most ingredients used are easily available. To retain natural taste and flavour, spices are used sparingly. Unlike some cookery books that are merely compilations, all the recipes presented here are tried, tested or innovated by the author and would be just ideal for daily meals. Besides, these dishes can easily be a part of any Indian or Continental menu set for special occasions too. In short, mushrooms used in everyday cooking will help maintain the good health of your loved ones.
