Creamy Garlic Mushrooms
Mushrooms are an overlooked fungus, sometimes referred (incorrectly) to as a vegetable. It contains some unique nutritional qualities that make it an excellent dietary choice. Use the highest quality mushrooms you can find. And, not all mushrooms are created equal. The difference in flavor among varieties is quite distinctive. Pretty much all of them are delicious, but a white mushroom does not taste like a cremini, and that mushroom tastes nothing like a shiitake (and so on). So try different kinds of mushrooms, or make a pot pourri with this dish so you can see how different these little fungi are from each other.
Be sure you buy your mushrooms as fresh as possible and cook them as soon as possible. Like other perishable vegetables, these lose nutritional value very fast as well as flavor. So buy them and cook them up right away. Mushrooms provide lots of immune system benefits and protection against inflammation such as arthritis. Mushrooms are curious things to cook with. Watch when you add them to the fat or liquid that you are cooking them in. The mushrooms will initially absorb all or most of the liquid, and you might think you need to add some more. Wait a few moments, though, and the mushroom again releases the liquid or fat back in to the pan. Mushrooms can be cooked to varying degrees, but like a good steak, mushroom snobs may insist that they be only ever so lightly braised for best flavor and texture. Perhaps. Try cooking them to different degrees and taste them as you cook to see what you and your family prefer. Mushrooms are a fantastic food that can take significant seasoning and offer plenty of good nutrients for our diet. Make them a regular part of the foods that you and your family eat.
