Jodie Kidd shares her love of mushrooms!

TV presenter, model and Celebrity Masterchef runner-up Jodie Kidd was the latest celebrity to front the campaign, which features advertisements in some of the most popular magazines and websites.

Monaghan Mushrooms are involved in a Mushroom Bureau campaign to encourage people in the UK and Ireland to discover the true greatness of mushrooms!

Jodie is a keen cook, narrowly missing out on the Celebrity Masterchef title. As a mum of one small boy, she understands the challenges involved in finding quick and nutritious meals for her family. We asked Jodie to show off her cooking skills and create some simple mushroom recipes that are perfect  for busy families.

Jodie created three delicious meals, which include a super-quick mushroom & roast chicken risotto, a hearty mushroom & sausage casserole, and a vegetarian mushroom, sweet potato & kale pie.

Jodie said:

“I’ve always been passionate about healthy eating but since becoming a mum, I’ve become increasingly aware of the importance of giving my son a nutritionally balanced diet. Mushrooms are the perfect ingredient for this, as they not only count towards your five a day, but can also add fantastic flavour to any dish.

My time on Celebrity Masterchef has made me a lot more experimental with my cooking, and the versatility of mushrooms means that they always feature in my favourite family meals.”
