ARE MUSHROOMS GOOD FOR A LOW CARB DIETS?

Absolutely. One cup of sliced white mushrooms only has 2.3 grams of carbohydrates. They are also high in fiber, so the net amount of carbs in that cup of mushrooms is only 1.5 grams. With almost no fat and only 15 calories per cup, mushrooms are low carb, low fat and low calorie. The’re a smart food choice for anyone on a low carb or low calorie diet.

If you’re like many people, you’re fighting inflammation from any number of causes. Mushroom are an anti-inflammatory food you should absolutely add to your diet. They’re full of antioxidants, Selenium for your liver and Vitamin D, which a lot of adults are deficient in. Eat cooked as well as raw mushrooms to get the most benefit from them.

HOW TO FREEZE CREAM OF MUSHROOM SOUP

While there is nothing as comforting as the thought of a stash of creamy soup in the freezer, soups with cream in them just don’t freeze well. The cream will take on a grainy texture and only an intense amount of beating may, and I emphasize may, bring them around.

There is an easy solution: Make the soup per the instructions, but hold back the cream. Add the cream to the soup when you are re-heating it from the freezer.

To Freeze: Make the soup (without the cream) and allow to cool completely. Transfer into freezer-safe containers, leaving at least an inch of empty space at the top to allow for expansion. Seal and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator, and add the cream before re-heating.
