Garlic Butter Mushrooms
Mushrooms are full of nutritional benefits and can make a great stand-in for meat in vegetarian dishes because of their complex, savory flavor and firm texture. Additionally, mushrooms are the only plant source of vitamin D (a nutrient many of us are deficient in) and one of the only types of widely available produce that contain significant amounts of selenium. The latter, according to WebMD, helps prevent cell damage. Many varieties are also thought to have immune-boosting and anti-cancer properties.
These are INSANELY addictive! If you can't find cremini mushrooms, look for baby bella's or button mushrooms—they're essentially the same thing!
If you love these, you gotta try our stuffed mushrooms. They're dangerously good.
