If you want a fast and delicious vegan dinner tonight, try this Indian-inspired spicy mushroom stir fry with garlic, black pepper, and chives.

Interesting Facts About Mushrooms

  • If you read the nutritional information on a package of mushrooms, you’ll notice that some contain vitamin D and some don’t. When exposed to sunlight, mushrooms produce an active form of vitamin D. Most commercially grown mushrooms are raised indoors, in the dark, and lack the nutrient. Some growers expose their mushrooms to artificial ultraviolet light to induce vitamin D synthesis.[1]
  • Mushrooms are the only plant source of vitamin D. Meat is the only other food source of vitamin D.[1]
  • Mushrooms contain the same form of vitamin B-12 as meat.[1]
  • Mushrooms have umami—a meaty, savory flavor and one of the five basic tastes. If you have a craving for meat and salt, try a mushroom dish. It might satisfy those cravings.[1]
  • Mushrooms are a terrific source of copper, potassium, folate, and niacin (B3).[2]
  • Foraging for mushrooms in the wilderness, also known as mushroom hunting, is fun but it’s important to exercise caution. Many poisonous mushrooms are nearly identical to safe varieties.
