About: Mushrooms are classified as Fungi, which is a different category of organisms. They lack the green matter (chrolophyll) found in plants and must rely on dead and decaying organic debris to survive. The mushroom fruiting body might be umbrella-shaped or any other form, size, or colour.
Health benefits: Mushrooms are high in fibre, protein, and antioxidants while being low in calories. They may also reduce the risk of acquiring significant health problems like Alzheimer's, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
How to use: Button mushrooms can be consumed either raw or cooked. Look for mushrooms with smooth tops and no soft places at the market. While many cooks argue that rinsing mushrooms leads them to absorb too much water, a brief rinse is OK as long as you pat them dry immediately and don't leave them soaking in water.
