/ ,blend-ǝ-‘ter-ē- ǝn / noun /
One who believes that the mighty, meaty mushroom makes meals more delicious, nutritious and sustainable! Scroll down to see how I am taking the challenge.
Tacos are one of them meals that my family could literally “live” on. My kids request them every week and I totally do not mind because they make for a super easy meal. Lately, however, I am trying to add some extra nutrition to my meals. I swapped out iceberg lettuce for organic greens, and added olives to tacos, and now use organic corn shells. My kids have no idea that I am making dinner more nutrtious and that is ok because if those picky buggers knew they probably would not eat.
Little do they know that my best kept secret is that I added ground brown mushrooms to the hamburger meat in a 2 parts hamburger, 1 part ground mushroom mixture. This makes us Blenditarians–scroll down below for more info! This not only stretched the ground beef and provided leftovers, but it also added some nutritional bang for my buck! Mushrooms are fat-free, cholesterol free, low in calories, and provide important nutrients like vitamin D, B vitamins, antioxidants and potassium. By blending mushrooms with meat You also get an easy serving of vegetables to the plate which this Momma loves!
The best part is you cannot even tell when you look at the meat so my picky eater had no idea they were getting an extra does of goodness! Overall, I have to say, this recipe made for some delicious tacos and easy leftovers. To warm the meat mixture for the next day, I simply added it to a skillet and heated on low.
You too can add extra nutrtion to your ground beef based meals! Make the pledge to be a Blenditarian and share what drives you to do better! You can also take the monthly Blenditarian Challenge (you could win $250!)
