Blend your way into FBC2016: Beef & Mushroom Spring Rolls by Bakersbeans

It’s that time of year again! We’re planning for another fun Food Bloggers of Canada Conference and are once again hosting our Appetizer Spotlight Contest.

FBC Members have the chance to win their way into the SOLD OUT conference, simply by submitting their favourite appetizer, making use of The Blend method. Blending is easy: simply blend finely chopped mushrooms into the ground meat of your choice to add depth of flavour, added texture, and beneficial nutrients to the dish.

We’re excited to share the first entry into this year’s competition, Beef & Mushroom Spring Rolls by Bakersbeans.

Blend & Extend on Breakfast Television

Happy New Year!! I hope you all had a fantastic holiday of over-indulging in everything delicious! I certainly know I did.
Now that we’re back into the usual routine, it’s time to re-focus on healthy mealtimes. One great way to ensure that you and your family are getting all of the nutrients you need, is to bring the Blend & Extend concept into your own home! You can still enjoy the classic dishes that your family craves, while boosting the nutritional profile. It’s really a win-win!!
Chef, mom, and mushroom-lover Charmaine Broughton was up bright and early this morning sharing our mushroom goodness with Breakfast Television viewers. Sampling some of our favourites, Charmaine will help get your menu back on track. Watch the video below!
