Creating Meat Substitutes with Mushrooms

Gourmet mushrooms are great for meatless meals! Their textures are decidedly “meaty,” and their umami flavor is reminiscent of animal proteins like beef and chicken. They are also more environmentally friendly to produce than animal products. Here’s how to transform some of R&R Cultivation’s most popular gourmet mushroom varieties into a convincing meat substitute.
