Yesterday, I explored the health benefits of adding mushrooms to your diet to help ward off colds and the flu this season.
If you’re pressed for time and need a quick dinner solution, check out the organic mushroom soup mixes from Snohomish, Washington-based FungusAmongUs Inc. Three flavors (all organic) are available: Moroccan Porcini & Green Lentil, Smoked Oyster Mushroom Chowder and Spicy Shiitake & Vegetable.
Each box makes four hearty servings. The company also sells a dozen varieties of bulk dried mushrooms, mushroom-growing kits for organic gardening, truffle-infused olive oil and organic seasonings.
You can buy FungusAmongUs products nationwide at major natural and organic food stores, including Whole Foods Market, Fred Meyers, QFC, PCC, Town and Country Markets, Food Pavilion and Madison Markets. If you can’t find the soups locally, you can order three boxes online for $15 (plus shipping).
