Summer Comfort with Mushrooms

I don’t think the summer is supposed to be dark and chilly. Today before leaving the house, I made sure to grab a sweater. I’m not impressed Mother Nature. The one nice thing about this weather is that it’s okay to use the oven. Turning on the oven won’t have me melting beside it, meaning it’s time to enjoy some baked mushroom comfort on this cool summer day.

Start off with a deliciously warm breakfast of Baked Eggs with Mushrooms in under 25 minutes. Add in your favourite summer veggies, the cheese you forgot about in the fridge, and make this a morning to remember. Even without the summer sunshine, mushrooms pack Vitamin D into your meals. Mushrooms are the only item in your grocer’s produce department that contain Vitamin D, naturally.

When lunchtime rolls around, stuff some delicious spaghetti flavour into a meaty Portabella mushroom. This Baked Mushroom Parmesan has the same Italian appeal, without the carbs. Your favourite pasta sauce is topped with cheese and paired with a side salad for some afternoon comfort. This recipe is especially great if you’re dealing with muscle pain or joint inflammation since it’s a Good Source of Selenium.

Dinnertime can be tricky. Finding that perfect dish that the family will love, paired with a mouthwatering side. Isabelle of Crumb: A Food Blog, has you covered for the ultimate summer side. Her Baked Potatoes with Creamy Mushroom Ragout are a hearty vegetarian side that pair perfectly with beef, chicken, veal or pork. Be generous with the mouthwatering, Creamy Mushroom Ragout- it will be a hit!

There’s no time to worry about the weather. Embrace the cooler temperatures, turn on the oven and get comfortable. These meals are going to make you smile.
