Mushrooms keep finding their way into my recipes lately. Maybe my body instinctively knows that they’re a good source of nutrients like potassium, selenium, and vitamin B. More likely it’s just because I dig their earthy flavor. Whatever the reason, I’m happy when there’s fungus on my plate!
For tonight I made a snap pea and mushroom saute. It was de-licious! Snap peas are another favorite of which I definitely don’t eat enough. They too are loaded with nutrients. Vitamin K, manganese and fiber, to name just a few.
I have fond memories from my childhood when my dad grew these puppies in our backyard garden. I would pick and eat them right of the vine. I loved their sweet crunchiness…and I still do!
Snap Pea and Mushroom Saute
- 3 cups snap peas, rinsed
- 2 cups white mushrooms
- half a onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp canola oil
- several sprays of Bragg Liquid Aminos

Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add all ingredients and cook for 5-8 minutes.
After this, I definitely feel nourished!
