How to Cook With Canned Mushrooms

- Mar 02, 2018 -

Canned foods are a convenient and inexpensive way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet, and their rich texture makes them a good meat substitute in vegetarian recipes. Using canned mushrooms can add a small amount of fiber and other nutrients -- including iron, magnesium and B-complex vitamins -- to your favorite recipes. If your recipe calls for a pound of mushrooms and you would prefer to used the canned version, substitute one 6-oz. can for a similar amount. The options for adding canned mushrooms to your cooking are only limited by your imagination. Pick up a can or two next time you head to the supermarket, and get creative.
