A Splendid Side Dish

Whether you’re cooking up an entire Thanksgiving dinner, or playing a supporting role by bringing a dish to someone else’s house, you’ll find today’s Health-e-Recipe for Braised Mushrooms with Herbs refreshingly simple to prepare.

Mushrooms are being studied for potential anti-inflammatory and cancer-prevention properties. Funded by AICR, researchers at the Beckman Research Institute’s City of Hope in Los Angeles found shiitake, portobello, crimini and white button mushrooms suppressed the production of aromatase, a substance that fuels production of the hormone estrogen, a factor in breast cancer. Mushrooms are also being studied for their potential effects on prostate cancer.

The herbs in this recipe complement the mushrooms perfectly. Don’t worry about the red wine: The alcohol evaporates as the mushrooms cook and you’re left with a rich tasting glaze. For a vegetarian version, just substitute vegetable broth for the beef broth.
