I still have my addiction to avocados. But I've added another vice--mushrooms. I like 'em together on really, anything. I mean, what are they putting in these things? Whatever it is, I am currently crazy about mushrooms.
Now, compared to avocados, mushrooms are a real pain in the pan. That's because I have to sauté them before I put them on my wraps, salads, pasta, burgers, breakfast. (I have no limits when it comes to shrooms. Well, I might stop at dessert.)
I often think, "Ooh, mushrooms would be so good in this pita pocket," (Oh, that's another thing I love right now!) but then I'm all, "Do I want to get out the pan, the oil (olive or coconut are my faves) and then sauté them and then clean the pan and spatula?" Usually my answer is, "YES! Shrooms are totally worth it!!"
And they're good for you too--they've got Vitamin D, antioxidants, and B vitamins. Of course different kinds have different stuff but I'm not picky. I like portobello, crimini, white button, whatever.
It's getting to the point where I can go through a box (is it bad that I buy them in a the box and not fresh? Is it also bad that this blog is full of parenthetical phrases?) like every three days? I'm constantly making avocado and mushroom runs. (Side note: Avocados have gone way up in price lately so my addiction, like most addictions, is also bleeding me dry.)
So in conclusion, I freakin' love mushrooms.
