Grilled Mushroom Medley

Grilling with a little oil caramelizes the mushrooms to bring out the full flavour.  The combo of four different mushroom varieties in this recipe maximises the nutrient profile.  You can mix your own favourites, or just use one.  

This snack or tasty side can be served at room temperature or warm fresh out of the pan.   This medley of mushrooms is packed with vitamins B2, B5, B5, B6 and E as well as choline, folate, copper iron, potassium, selenium and zinc.  

Pro tip:  Leave the mushrooms out in the sun before roasting (gill side up) to absorb a little bit of extra vitamin D!
