If you’ve been on food Instagram lately, you’ve probably seen videos of people making smashed vegetable recipes. Regular potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower…you name it, someone has smashed it. But quite frankly, we love this trend! The smashed veggies look delicious and as dietitians, we love finding fun ways to encourage vegetable intake. It’s a win-win!
This popular recipe trend prompted us to create our own spin. As our chief recipe developer, Stacie decided to take a veggie that not everyone is a fan of and turn it into an instant classic. Here, air fryer smashed mushrooms were born! Lightly coated in bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese, these little mushrooms are so crispy and so so DELICIOUS!
Not only will this recipe make your mouth water, it is also highly nutritious. The health benefits of mushrooms often go unnoticed compared to other veggies. Let us tell you though, these are packed with essential nutrients your body needs. Mushrooms are a powerful vegetable that are a good source of vitamin D for bone health, selenium for immune support, and prebiotics for improved gut health. They are also rich in B vitamins to increase energy production. Mushrooms are low in calories and can be a great snack or appetizer for anyone looking to lose weight. If these health benefits are as enticing to you as they are to us, then the recipe below is a must-try!
Now you have a fun, trendy, and delicious way to spice up your smashed veggies! Let us know how it tastes and check out our Instagram @revitalized_healthandwellness for step by step videos of our recipes!
