As an environmental scientist, I am always trying to make sustainable ingredients shine. Not only are mushrooms delicious and nutritious, but when sourced locally and in season, they’re also considered a sustainable crop.
They have a relatively small environmental footprint as they require little water and energy to grow and emit very little CO2.
Check when mushrooms are in season in your area with this Seasonal Food Guide.
