“The Blend”
Have you heard of The Blend? If you’re looking to add a new twist of flavor to your favorite recipes you can accomplish that with mushrooms! Known as “The Blend” you replace ¼ to ½ of the ground meat that a recipe calls for and instead add chopped mushrooms. Along with adding amazing flavor, The Blend also reduces the intake of fat and calories as well.
Any mushrooms would work, but Shiitake would really add a lot more of the umami flavor to a meaty dish like meatloaf, meatballs, burgers or anything you are using ground meat for. It also adds a nice flavor to ground turkey or any other ground meat in a dish, even breakfast sausage. Mixing up the type of mushrooms can add different flavors as well.
