The autumn harvest is as plentiful as it is varied. Celebrate the season with SQUASH, KOHLRABI and WILD MUSHROOMS



You don’t need to go foraging (if you do, be careful what you pick) as supermarkets now sell the likes of porcini, oyster, morels and girolle, as well as wild mushroom mixes.

Nutritional reasons to buy

The nutrition will vary depending on the variety but, as a rule, mushrooms are packed with fibre and provide blood-pressure- controlling potassium, the antioxidant selenium plus copper for healthy nerves and strong immunity. Mushrooms also contain phosphorus and manganese for strong bones, and a variety of B vitamins such as B2, folate and pantothenic acid, all of which help to release energy from food. Plus they make a satisfying veggie alternative to meat in dishes such as stir-fries, burgers and stews.
