Add some variety to your lunches and dinners and boost their nutritional value with the blend-and-extend method that uses mushrooms to transform meals. The technique is easy: blend finely chopped, umami-rich mushrooms with a portion of ground meat in classic family meals.

Including fresh mushrooms is a great way to add tasty nutrients to any meal. 100 grams of fresh mushrooms counts as one serving of vegetables. Mushrooms are low in calories, carbs and fat. They provide vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and are the only vegetable with vitamin D. Not to mention they also have no cholesterol or sodium.

By blending beef and mushrooms together, you help to bring another serving of vegetables to the plate, add volume to meals and extend portions. Blending also decreases calories, lowers saturated fat and cholesterol content, adds flavour and boosts umami. With one simple ingredient you can elevate your dishes to a whole new level of tasty.
