VIRTUAL COOKING CLASS: Feta and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms

Original Air Date: Wednesday, November 4, 2020

Make no bones about it – you need protein in addition to calcium and vitamin D for strong and healthy bones.

Bone is made up of calcium, other minerals and protein, a nutrient that is necessary for building and repairing body tissues, including bones. Protein is an important nutrient for bone health and in the prevention of osteoporosis. It gives bone its strength and flexibility and is also the big component of muscles, which are, of course, crucial for mobility and in preventing falls.

Emily demonstrates how to make the featured recipe – Feta and Kale Stuffed Mushrooms – a vegetarian meal with 12g of protein and 225 mg of calcium per serving.

Featured Recipe:

Enjoy these stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer or serve them up as a delicious side or vegetarian main course. For the avid grillers, cook them on your outdoor grill for a smoky addition of flavour.
