Sausage-stuffed mushrooms

This is a list of notable mushroom dishes and foods, comprising foodstuffs prepared using mushrooms as a primary ingredient.

Edible mushrooms have variety of benefits when consumed. They have essential nutrients we need for a healthy life, including protein, vitamins B, C and D, and selenium, which helps prevent cancer.[1] They are a good source of iron, copper, riboflavin, niacin and contain dietary fiber. One portobello mushroom can contain more potassium than a banana.[2]

In many cultures, mushroom picking is an important tradition and can be a substantial source of income. In the Pacific Northwest of the United States, it is estimated that, in some situations, the value of the yearly mushroom harvest in a forest can equal the value of lumber it can produce.[3] According to the “Menus of Change” initiative of The Culinary Institute of America and the Harvard School of Public Health Department of Nutrition, pairing the evidence for health- and sustainability-linked food choices with flavor, other culinary, and demographic trends and plausible business scenarios allows flavor-rich, largely plant-based food and menu choices to emerge. Mushrooms, with their unique sensory and culinary properties, may help Americans move toward healthier, plant-based choices. Of particular interest are the high amounts of both glutamates (not as monosodium glutamate) and ribonucleotides in A. bisporus. Glutamate and certain 5′-ribonucleotides are taste-active chemicals responsible for umami flavours. Calcium diglutamate, in particular, was shown to improve the flavor of low-sodium products.[4]
