I just love mushrooms and I could eat it in all the ways  and with in all kind if combinations. Very tasty, low-calorie, full of proteins, excellent source of B1 vitamins, essential minerals, selenium and cooper. Just perfect for vegetarians and not only :) Another advantage is that you can prepare it in so many ways and so fast…They are the ideal meal for everyone!

To keep the simple way if making the salads, this one I made today is also clean, easy and delicious.

4. After you have preheated the oven at 180 °C, put the try in the oven and bake the mushrooms for about 40 min, until they will become soft and dark brown. After the first 20 minutes, you can take it out from the oven and mix it again.

I craved for some seafood and as an emergency I combined this salad with some marinated shells. Very delicious. For me, this was the perfect meal after one hour of strong indoor cycling.
