For many, meat is an important source of protein in a well-balanced diet. It’s also a source of the cravable umami flavor we rely on to anchor our meals and satisfy our stomachs. But the reality is, you may not always have it on hand. Whether you’re running low between grocery runs or cutting back to stretch your grocery budget, The Blend™can help you maximize your meat supply.
The Blend = blending finely chopped mushrooms with ground meat to make meals more nutritious and delicious while extending portion sizes.
With the addition of chopped mushrooms, your meal gets a nutritious upgrade, including a serving of vitamin D without any added fat or cholesterol. Plus, The Blend is super flexible, so no matter how much meat you have, you can still enjoy your favorite recipes. It’s a culinary superhero that will save the day when a dish could use an extra volume boost or you need to make a little go a long way.
For A Little Volume Boost
When you just want some added flavor, texture and nutrition in your meal, use a blend of 25% mushrooms and 75% meat. This combination makes the perfect consistency for burgers, meatballs and meatloaf.
For Double the Volume
For Making A Little Go A Long Way
Just because you have limited meat to work with doesn’t mean you have limited possibilities. Using just 25% meat and 75% mushrooms can get you a delicious meaty base for flavorful chilis, sauces and other one-pot meals.
For A Meat Alternative
If you need a full-on meat substitute, chopped mushrooms make a great alternative for ground meat in pasta sauces, tacos and burritos. Or, grill savory marinated portabellas for tasty all-mushroom burgers.
