The weekdays call for a variety of quick, delicious meals that the whole family can enjoy and Tuesdays are dedicated to tacos!
Using the blendability technique, Culinary Institute of America chef, Bill Briwa, and Mushroom Council president, Bart Minor, provide a closer look into how the taste and texture of mushrooms can spice up your Taco Tuesday menu:
Enjoyed crunchy and mild or soft and zesty, tacos bring a personal touch to family dinners with their variety of toppings and serving styles. The assortment of ground meats and fresh veggies that can be used to stuff your shells creates serious flavor combinations and makes tacos a great dish to experiment with using mushrooms. With the ability to chop and blend seamlessly into ground meat, mushrooms are a delicious addition to your taco night. The added flavor of minced mushrooms also allows you to decrease salt and seasonings making blend-tacos a healthier yet desirable option for the family.
