We all know that mushrooms are good for health. They are rich in vitamins, antioxidants as well as minerals like selenium. But their benefits cannot always make up for their suspicious appearance. Let’s be honest: some of us cannot believe that something that looks like that can be eaten! When cooked right, mushrooms can be so delightful that you will forget all about how they originally looked. Nowadays, it is common to add a bit of mushroom to your pasta or pizza in limited quantities. In other dishes, components like chicken and potato may be substituted by mushrooms. Perhaps you have already tried these options but are dreading tasting any dish that contains a lot of mushrooms. But don’t worry! You can still incorporate them into your diet in unique ways. For instance, why not eat them as tacos?
