Many have asked ‘What can I do with Mushroom Powder’? Use them to help bring more flavor to soups and stews without adding texture or meat products. Sprinkle across a salad for an extra ‘wow’ factor. Mix into meatloaf or burger patties to add an extra depth of flavor without necessarily adding bulk or texture. Sprinkle in pasta sauces for added depth of flavor.
