Nutritional values

The mushrooms are steamed in broth, so that they cannot absorb fat as when fried in oil or butter. Instead, they provide vitamin D, which no other vegetable food offers: 70 percent of the daily requirement contributes to the body's ability to utilize calcium, which in turn is crucial for the stability of our skeleton.

Also tastes delicious if you use mixed mushrooms, e.g. herb sided, brown mushrooms and oyster mushrooms. They are all rich in vital substances and low in fat. - If you cannot get dandelions, use romaine lettuce hearts instead.
