Alright, blenditarians. It’s time. Grab your white buttons, criminis, portabellas or whatever your variety of choice happens to be and get to blending because September is Mushroom Month!
If you’re anything like us, mushrooms are on your menu year-round, but this month, they deserve a little extra love. Mushrooms not only add flavor and volume when blended with meat in your favorite recipes, they also come loaded with nutritional benefits.
So, embrace Mushroom Month and blend every day. Where there’s a meal, there’s a way:
- Breakfast: From delicious hashes to protein-packed egg bakes, The Blend makes breakfast time even brighter.
- Lunch: Tackle the midday hump by making a quick cheeseburger quesadilla or enjoying flavorful blended sausage patties atop a bed of fresh greens.
- Dinner: Have a household full of pasta lovers? Burger buffs? Taco fans? With The Blend, you can sneak a serving of veggies into all these classic dinner foods and more.
- Snack: Munching between meals? Grab a bag of tortilla chips and dig into this blended queso. Or, bake a batch of these muffin tin meatloaves to have a pre-made serving of vegetables and protein on hand whenever your tummy rumbles.

“It’s so simple, and you might even turn a mushroom hater in your family into a mushroom lover! Blending adds an extra serving of healthy vegetables to the meal and, when cooked properly, mushrooms can easily mimic meat. Just chop to match the consistency of the meat they’re paired with and no one will be the wiser.”
