The wonderful thing about mushrooms is that their hearty bite and texture make them perfect meat substitutes for plant-based diets, whether you’re using them for burgers or spaghetti sauce. And you don’t need to settle for portobello every time. There are plenty of varieties that will give you that sought-after umami flavor while being a solid source of plant-based vitamin D. What’s not to love?
