How to Cook Champignon Mushrooms
Champignon mushrooms contain significant amounts of potassium, copper and other nutrients.

Champignon -- also known as white button -- mushrooms have a mild taste that easily blends with other flavors. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, both raw and cooked white button mushrooms contain a significant measure of minerals and trace elements. Champignons are a favorite addition in salads, casseroles, meats, gravies, sauces and stews. To maintain freshness, wrap mushrooms in a damp paper towel and store them in a brown paper sack until use.
