Recipe For Mushroom Rolls

The best way to bulk up any meal is to add mushrooms to the mix. #JoinTheBlendTrend by replacing part of the meat in any dish with mushrooms. You could try this with my recipe for cottage pie or simply make these amazing mushroom rolls. Mushrooms are an umami-rich, healthy vegetable. They are nutrient dense adding potassium, B-vitamins and antioxidants to your dish.

Head straight on to the recipe for Mushroom Rolls ♥

When tasked by the South African Mushroom Farmer’s Association to come up with a recipe to #JoinTheBlendTrend I knew immediately I would make mushroom rolls. The aim here is to replace 50% of the meat in a traditional recipe with mushrooms. This blendability results in a variety of benefits including adding taste to a dish. For my alternative to sausage rolls I went with the lighter option of phyllo pastry instead of butter rich puff pastry. You could make these mushroom rolls completely vegetarian by just doubling up on the mushrooms and omitting the meat.

There are many interesting facts surrounding mushrooms. If you start adding more mushrooms into your diet they can aid in weight loss. Mushrooms contain water therefore they will make you feel fuller sooner and keep the hunger pangs at bay longer. Mushrooms contain 14mg of sodium per 100gms making them heart healthy. Coupled with the high potassium content, this can result in lowering your blood pressure. Mushrooms are also a good source of copper, an essential mineral that aids in the production of red blood cells.

  1. I love mushrooms but I do wish there were more varieties available in Australia. We basically have the button and large field mushroom available. Occasionally in the southern states they may see a wider variety because the temperature is more conducive. I suppose I can’t have it all.

  2. I forget about mushrooms as a meat substitute but I shouldn’t. There is a nearby vegan restaurant that makes “chicken wings” from mushrooms and a delicious mushroom “burger” sold in our grocery. You inspired me to saute an entire pan for use this week.
