About recipe

Mushrooms have been used medicinally in Eastern medicine for thousands of years and, more recently, Western cultures are becoming aware of their nutritional properties. Most people appreciate mushrooms simply for their ability to add flavor to a diverse array of recipes. They come in many different colors, shapes, sizes, and flavors – in fact, over 10,000 varieties are known!
