There is an Asian grocery store on Refugee Road, not far from our favorite farmer’s market in Canal Winchester. This small store has a great selection of mushrooms in varieties not found in the larger chains and at a fraction of the cost. Like most of our adventures, we make the trip an all-day affair, stopping at the farmer’s market (if it is summer) and one of our favorite restaurants.
If you are seeking to include more plants in your diet, mushrooms are a great alternative to meat. Mushrooms are rich in fiber, protein, and antioxidants, low in calories and sodium. Nutritionally, mushrooms are known sources of zinc, copper, potassium, and certain B vitamins. If they are raised with ultraviolet light exposure, they also can be a good source of Vitamin D.
After each trip, I can always count on mushroom soup. Each time, the results are a bit different. This time, John tried a new recipe. Of course, he always gives his creations, his special magic touch. The results are delicious, healthy, and nutritious.
