Mushroom Sandwich Ideas

Mushroom Sandwich Ideas
Mushrooms have jumped out of their cans and gotten fresh with the world of cooking. No longer relegated to canned, semi-tasteless, little rubber-like pieces, this versatile fungus family can star in a fabulous sandwich. Mushrooms have the ability to simulate a meaty texture, when you taste a thick and tempting Portobello. They also absorb the tastes of the ingredients that they are cooked with. Grilled, sautéed, or fried, mushrooms are mouthwatering in sandwiches.

One cup of mushrooms that has been boiled without salt contains a lot of nutrition for the calorie count. Mushrooms only have 44 calories, but 7% of the Daily Values for protein. Packed into that are several vitamins and minerals that are essential for good nutrition. Mushrooms can contribute a significant amount, at least 10%, of these dietary essentials: fiber, Vitamin C, Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5), Iron, Copper, Riboflavin, Niacin, Phosphorus, Potassium, and Selenium. Look below for some nutritious sandwich ideas that can be made with mushrooms. We have vegetarian selections, as well as sandwiches made with meat.
