Featured Ingredients

Button Mushrooms


Button mushrooms, also known as white mushrooms, are one of the most commonly cultivated types of mushrooms in the world.

These fungi have a fleshy cap and a short stem, and they can range in color from white to light brown.

Button mushrooms are typically harvested when they are young and their caps are still tightly closed.

These mushrooms have a mild flavor and are often used in soups, salads, and other dishes.

Zucchini


Zucchini is a type of summer squash that is usually green in color. It is low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals, making it a healthy addition to any diet.

Zucchini can be cooked in a variety of ways, including baking, roasting, and sauteing. It can also be eaten raw, either as part of a salad or as a healthy snack.

When choosing zucchini at the supermarket, look for ones that are firm and have skin that is free of blemishes. Avoid those that are soft or have wrinkled skin, as these may be past their prime.
