Button mushrooms are a low calorie, nutrient-dense ingredient that will elevate the nutritional profile of any meal. White button mushrooms get their name due to the stage in which they are picked, as young or immature mushrooms have yet to turn brown.


  1. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the mushrooms for 3 minutes. Add the hoisin sauce and cook for 2 minutes.
  2. Arrange the brown rice in the serving bowls and arrange the lettuce leaves on top. Followed by the grilled mushrooms, corn, peppers, avocado and black beans.
  3. Whisk the olive oil, vinegar and salt and milled black pepper together and drizzle over the salad.

Rich in essential minerals, an avocado contains more than 70% water and is one of the most valuable sources of organic fat, which makes up 20% of the fruit. Avocados owe their buttery, creamy texture to this high fat content, with a rich oleic acid content, which is a monounsaturated fatty acid.
