Mushroom Risotto 

Print Friendly 

Description:
Wild mushrooms are the best non-animal source of vitamin D going and some have the added benefit of vitamins B and C as well. They are also a good source of antioxidants such as polyphenols that have been linked with cancer-risk reduction and antiaging.
To prevent mushroom poisoning, mushroom gatherers need to be very intimately familiar with the mushrooms they intend to collect, including knowledge of the toxic species that look similar to these edible species. Best buy from a trusted health store or supermarket.


Ingredients:
1 cup Arborio rice ( or barley)
2 shallots, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
4 cups of sliced wild mushrooms,
3 to 4 cups stock - veggie
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
½ cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon of olive oil
¾ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 bunch cilantro, rough chopped.


Directions:
1. In a large skillet place oil, shallots and garlic, sauté gently till onion is tender.
2. Add rice and mix well with onion ensuring to coat each grain of rice in the oil.
3. Add the ½ the mushrooms and some stock, stirring constantly, the object is to have the rice absorb the stock before adding more stock.
4. Add seasoning and continue adding stock until rice is 2/3 rds cooked.
5. Add remaining mushrooms and more stock till rice is completely cooked and tender.
6. Add cream and cheese, mix well.
7. Serve with green salad and garnish with chopped cilantro.

Raw Green Smoothie
Category: Raw Foods
Description: "Nutrient-rich kale is hidden in this delicious banana smoothie. . . perfect for those of us who have a hard time getting our daily dose of veggies!"

Kale is not only one of the more beautiful cruciferous vegetables, but it also one of the most nutritious. Here are nine reasons to eat kale, and eat it often.
One cup of kale has only 36 calories and zero grams of fat, which makes it a great diet aid. Furthermore, one cup contains nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. Finally, kale contains the glucosinolate isothiocyanate (ITC) that fights the formation of H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), a bacterial growth in the stomach lining that can lead to gastric cancer.
