From succulent portabella steaks to crunchy vegetarian nuggets, our 2014 Recipe Redux contest participants amped up the mushrooms and packed on the flavor in 37 delicious recipes! As part of the Council’s recent partnership with registered dietitians Regan Miller-Jones, Deanna Seagrave Daly and Serena Ball of The Recipe Redux, we tasked their community of 217 registered dietitians and health bloggers with revamping classic dishes by adding meaty mushrooms to the mix.
From blending fresh, diced mushrooms seamlessly with hearty ground meats in classic bruschetta and tender burgers to replacing meat altogether in crisp spring rolls and zesty, loaded nachos, the creativity was endless. The best part is that their efforts produced delicious, healthier alternatives to our favorite meals.
Let’s celebrate our contest winners!
- Rachael of An Avocado A Day turned taste buds with her savory and delicious Seared Portobello Mushroom Steak with Creamy Mashed Beans recipe.
- Lisa & McKenzie of Nourish RD’s put a healthy twist on a classic with their Power Green Lean Lasagna.
- Jeanette of Jeanette’s Healthy Living shared a delicious dinner alternative with her Healthy Mushroom Ground Beef Stroganoff blend recipe.
Congratulations are in order to all participants as we celebrate all the amazing recipes we received featuring the mushrooms we all love. Thanks from the Council for a deliciously successful program!
