Christmas

7th December

A week of the countdown to Christmas over and we have had a variety of contributions to our vegetable basket. Aren’t we lucky there are so many more options available still?

These come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and we have to be careful we don’t eat the wrong ones. Fortunately someone else has done the hard work for us when we get them from the shops 🙂 Even after accounting for the poisonous ones, there are over 2000 edible varieties.

Today we are having mushrooms…

Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins and selenium (and vitamin D if exposed to UV light). They are also a source of protein and low in fat.

Today I am not going to give you a recipe but simply suggest you saute a cup of mushrooms in a tiny bit of butter (a slice a couple of mm think will do) and enjoy on toast – no need to butter the toast, the juice from the mushrooms and the butter you have sauteed them in will surfice. Yum.
