Do you love mushrooms? We do too! Here’s a delicious and easy and interesting way to enjoy mushrooms – no matter what kind you find in the market. Perfect as a salad tonight – and leftovers make a super pita stuffer for tomorrow.

Mushrooms are little sponges of flavor – and nutrition too! They are one of the few foods that produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight and therefore contain Vitamin D for your body. Oyster mushrooms are a good source of iron, whereas shitake and maitake have the most medicinal properties. All mushrooms are low in calories and a great substitute for meat.

We are featuring thyme in this recipe – a delicious partner to mushrooms. Did you know that thyme can help lower blood pressure, stop coughs, and also help build your immune system because of its anti-inflammatory properties?
