Perhaps you don’t automatically think of “local” when you reach for fresh mushrooms, but you should! Monterey Mushrooms in Loudon is the birthplace for mushrooms of all kinds, from beefy portobellas to button types such as baby bellas. These delicious rooty nuggets add depth to practically any dish with just a dusting of calories. In fact, an entire pound contains only about 125 calories, but it’s loaded with dietary fiber. To keep them as fresh as when they were shipped from East Tennessee, don’t wash them until you are ready to use. Then do so with lightning speed in just a cool spray of water. Drain well on paper towels, and they are ready to use in these recipes!
