Mushroom Matar Sauté
Have you had your mushrooms today? You know what Dr. Fuhrman says? “Eat lots of mushrooms, all the time.” That’s because of the many health benefits that they impart. The statistics are ASTOUNDING. And I don’t use that word lightly. Mushrooms block tumor growth and have anti-estrogenic activity.
Here is a staggering fact for you: Eating just ONE mushroom per day can reduce a woman’s risk of breast cancer by 60-70%. Yes, you read that right. If there were a drug on the market that could make that claim do you think that the pharmaceutical companies would be selling it by the truckload? I think so, too. And you don’t have to buy a fancy kind of mushroom either. Plain white button mushrooms are just as good as expensive gourmet varieties when it comes to cancer protection. So, eat your shrooms and stay healthy!
This recipe uses some Indian spices. As I’ve mentioned previously, the best Indian spices I have found are Ajika brand. For this dish I used their Himalyan Herbal Spice Blend but you can also use separate spices which I will list in the ingredients below. This is such a quick and easy dish to prepare… I needed something fast and this was perfect. You can always include some brown rice to make it more of a meal. Enjoy!
