BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“Tasted like Herb Cream Cheese, which surprised me cause sometimes you can tell that it is fake cheese, not the real stuff.
But this one, it tasted like cream cheese spiked with herbs and spices.
Perfect texture of cream chesse as well! Really good for Vegan Cheese.” and “I made this again for a party, I added 2 cloves of roasted garlic and it tasted more of Herb and Garlic Cheese type, really amazing!” and “When I made it for a second time, I had some leftovers and I used it as spread on my crackers, mmmm!” and “You have to love mushrooms to appreciate the aroma as they cook.
Yum-my! These smelled awesome and tasted great. Reminded me of a big dinner being cooked.
Don’t forget to scrape the jar and eat the remaining filling!”
HEALTH BENEFITS OF EATING MUSHROOMS
Mushrooms are the only vegan source of Vitamin D.
Did you know that most Americans have a Vitamin D deficiency? Especially in the winter, many people do not get enough of vitamin D, which comes from the sun.
Mushrooms are exposed to sun during the farming process and then contain up to 20% of your daily value of Vitamin D!
The benefits of normal vitamin D levels include a decreased risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension and colorectal cancer.
You can boost the vitamin D in your mushrooms by putting them in the sun for 20 minutes before eating, but not for too long, or they will become wrinkled and not nearly as delicious.
Save your skin and get your Vitamin D through your diet with mushrooms!
