The mushroom omelet is quite delicious in its own right. It is the perfect vegetarian substitute for people who might want a “meatier” type omelet. Mushrooms are a well-known meat substitute because they have a significant protein content and they are very chewy. This is sometimes a quality that is overlooked in meat substitutions. Mushrooms are also easily seasoned so they can taste quite similar to meat if you choose to.

Health Benefits

A mushroom omelet is a pretty powerful thing. It is exceedingly filling as well as being extremely healthy. Mushrooms and eggs both have a high protein content. Eating this can help you meet your recommended daily protein intake in just one day. Protein is important because it is essential for cellular production and cellular reproduction. Mushrooms also contain selenium, an antioxidant responsible for the production of selenium which helps to support the immune system
