Our best healthy mushroom recipes

In one portobello mushroom, at only 18 calories, you get four percent of your daily fibre and two grams of protein – a combination that helps keep you full without making a caloric dent.

Research has praised mushrooms for their possible role in helping to manage cholesterol, control blood sugar and even help reduce the risk of breast cancer. Plus, mushroom recipes are becoming popular as a source of vitamin D. Mushrooms synthesize vitamin D2 from the sun, similar (albeit a bit less potent) to the D3 version that our skin manufactures in UV light.
