Hen of the Woods Mushrooms contain large amounts of minerals, anti-oxidants and Vitamin D (1 cup raw contains almost 1000 IU of Vitamin D3, possibly the highest of all mushrooms). One of the reasons this mushroom is a Superfood is that these nutrients are not lost when mushrooms are cooked. This Green Bean with Mushroom recipes is easy to prepare and compliments so many meals. Serve it with red quinoa and salad greens and it is the meal. We like to end with a Hail Merry Chocolate Raw Almond Butter Miracle Tart because we can. Feed Your Body Royally!
