Have you tried Trumpet Mushrooms? They're really delicious! I came across them for the first time about a month ago, and have been incorporating them into my cooking more and more.

Mushrooms have huge health benefits. They are rich in Vitamin B and contain minerals such as potassium and iron. Trumpet mushrooms are so easy to make and you can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, just swap out your toppings.

Trumpet mushrooms have a great savory flavor, and a firm, meaty porcini-like texture. Its savory richness is emphasized by high-heat cooking and brought out with butter or coconut oil. This recipe is full of delicious flavors that can be altered to suit your personal taste buds.
