The Blend mushrooms and mince method

Want to eat healthier, more delicious and nutritious meals, without having to give up red meat? ... it's time to BLEND!

The Blend™ is an easy cooking technique that you can adopt with any minced meat recipe. There's no need to change the recipes you already know and love... just make room for mushrooms!  How easy is that?

All you need to do is substitute some of the mince for mushrooms in your favorite mince meat recipes - like spaghetti, lasagna, tacos, burgers and meatballs. 

Making meals delicious, nutritious and sustainable with mushrooms is as easy as chop, blend and COOK!

It's time to become a Blenditarian...

The Blend is better for you and the planet too!

The Blend mushrooms and mince method

Three steps to BLEND!

Chop the mushrooms into fine pieces, so they match the consistency of minced meat.

You could use a food processor, but don't over chop!

The Blend step one - CHOP

Blend the mushrooms with your mince.

You can blend with any minced meat - beef, pork, chicken, lamb or turkey.


The Blend Step two - BLEND

Time to cook your blended mushroom-meat!

There is no need to change your recipe, no need for extra pots and pans... just make room for mushrooms and chop, cook BLEND!

The Blend step three - COOK

I'm a Blenditarian because I want to...

Eat Less Meat

Research suggests that eating less meat could decrease your risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer and can aid in weight loss. That's why I use 'The Blend' technique by substituting some mince for mushrooms.

Eat less Salt

Thanks to mushrooms’ umami (savory) taste, studies confirm you can maintain the delicious flavour of recipes you love while reducing salt needed by 25%²

Be Healthier

The Blend mushrooms and mince method adds more nutrients to the plate like vitamin D, potassium, B-vitamins, and antioxidants. The Blend also adds fibre too!

Lose Weight

Research suggests that by substituting one third of lean mince for mushrooms, you will save around 100 kilojoules per serving and make meals tasiter and more nutritious.

Help the planet

Mushroom farming is one of the most sustainable farming practices of all. Reducing meat and eating more mushrooms means you are doing better for the planet. (Thanks for that!)

Save Money

The Blend method of adding mushrooms to mince recipes results in more food! By adding mushrooms, you generate more servings and extend portions, which means cost savings on the price per serving.
