Cooking up a hearty dish on a daily basis is gratifying yet also challenging, as you need to achieve the perfect balance of flavors and the right complementing staple ingredients (be it pork, chicken, fish or vegetables) to make each family meal time a happy, satisfying experience. But do you know that by adding in mushrooms in your recipe, you can make everyday meals more delicious, extra nutritious, and excitingly enjoyable for the whole family? It is even simpler that you think!
To help bring out the best flavors and nutritional value in your dish choices, JOLLY, the No.1 canned mushroom brand in the country, provides two easy-to-prepare recipes that will give your favorite Filipino dishes a new appetizing twist that the family will surely love.
Following the 1 can of JOLLY Mushrooms + ½ kg of pork or chicken ratio, one can come up with a much delicious, nutritionally balanced dish that is a good source of protein, valuable minerals, and antioxidants.
Because mushrooms deliver a rich, earthy umami taste and meaty texture, they are used to perfectly complement almost any dish, any cuisine.
“Mushrooms are natural flavor enhancers. Whatever variety, their robust flavors and textures make them a versatile pantry must-have. Whether used as a practical non-meat substitute or combined with other main ingredients like meat, vegetables, or seafood, mushrooms can make any dish more satisfying, and enjoyable to eat,” says Fly Ace Corporation Group Product Manager for Canned Fruits and Vegetables Marilou Acuña.
