Beauty Food: Mushrooms Recipe


Mushrooms are a beauty food! But I’m normally not a big fan, and the kids hate them. I only like Marinated Mushroom recipe HERE and the above recipe. If you are old enough to remember the number one bestseller Fit for Life you might be familiar with this recipe ūüôā

So what is so beautifying about mushrooms?
Mushrooms comes with anti-inflammatory action which has been linked to aging and most disease. They help boost immunity which in turn help fight off inflammation. They are also low in calories and at the same time very nutrient dense. Containing 15 vitamins minerals and phytonutrients, including folate and hard to come by Vitamin D and Selenium.¬† Mushrooms can be a good substitute for meat as it has that denser texture that you might miss if you are used to eating meat.¬† It’s really important to only eat organic mushrooms as they absorb and concentrate whatever they grow in.

Vitamin-D Boosted Marinated Mushroom

When I was little my grandmother always took us kids mushroom picking in the dark mysterious Swedish woods.
She could name every mushroom we came across and she knew exactly where they were hiding,
I wish I had paid more attention.
Here in London I do my mushroom picking at err.. Whole Foods, where they have an amazing selection at the moment.
For this recipe I think chestnut buttons work best.
And remember to let your mushrooms sun bathe to boost that all important Vitamin D!

Raw Celeriac Mushroom and Pine Nuts Pasta

Raw Pasta

 

This Raw Celeriac Mushroom and Pine Nuts Pasta is one of my all time favourite raw dishes.
It’s filling, crunchy and salty and so easy to make!

Ingredients
1 celeriac root head
3 cups of mushrooms
1/2 cup pine nuts
2 table spoons of fresh sage and parsley
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 tablespoon of olive oil
2 table spoons of tamari sauce
Sea salt

Directions
Peel and slice the celeriac really thinly (it’s helpful to use a julienne or even better a spirulizer) You want it to reassemble pasta.
In the above picture I used a handheld julienne and than I cut it to size.

Mix the celeriac with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of olive oil some sea salt and put aside.

Slice the mushrooms really thinly.
Cut the herbs finely.

Mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of tamari sauce and the herbs together.
In a bowel mix the mushrooms and pine nuts and pour over the olive oil and tamari mixture. Let it marinate for 10 minutes.

Assemble the celeriac pasta and the mushroom mix, let it marinate for another 5 minutes and serve.

Hope you like it!!
