  1. Just curious…what nutrition am I actually adding by adding mushrooms? Looks like an insignificant amount of vitamin D.

  2. Alternatively, omit the ground beef and simply make a mushroom burger. There are many recipes out there. My own recipe includes roasted shiitake and portobello mushrooms, steamed greens (usually collard greens and kale), ground cashews, spelt flour and egg whites.
