Fire up the Grill with Dad this Father's Day
(NC) - Fire it Up! I can't think of a better way to spend time with dad on Father's Day than grilling up some Fresh Canadian Mushrooms. This fast and delicious recipe will have your dad asking for more. Sweet onions are caramelized with fresh Canadian mushrooms and served on top of thick, juicy hamburger patties. Including fresh mushrooms is a great way to add some tasty nutrients to dad's meal. One hundred grams (100 g) of fresh mushrooms counts as 1 serving of Fruits & Vegetables. Mushrooms are also low in calories, carbs and fat, they provide vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants, and are the only vegetable with Vitamin D. Not to mention they have no cholesterol or sodium.
So, this Father's Day help dad cook a meal that the whole family can enjoy.
