Let’s learn a bit about the 2 ingredients that make this Mushroom and Leek Bread recipe a must add in your cooking repertoire.

Mushrooms are fungi but we consider them as vegetables because they have been categorized as such for dietary recommendations. Mushrooms “provide many of the nutritional attributes of produce, as well as attributes more commonly found in meat, beans or grains. They are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and very low in sodium, yet they provide important nutrients, including selenium, potassium (8%), riboflavin, niacin, vitamin D and more.” (

“Mushrooms are a good source of B vitamins, including riboflavin, niacin, and pantothenic acid, which help to provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates2. B vitamins also play an important role in the nervous system. They are low in calories, fat-free, cholesterol-free and very low in sodium, yet they provide several nutrients that are typically found in animal foods or grains.” (

Leeks are often consumed as vegetables in many parts of Europe, America, and Asia. They contain many antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins that have proven many health benefits. They are low in calories and provide a good amount of soluble and insoluble fiber.

It is no wonder that when mushroom and leeks are mixed with whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour, the mixture becomes a passionate hearty affair. Adding veggies to your bread recipe is always a good idea because you get an additional dose of nutrients.

How to make the recipe

The recipe for Mushroom and Leek Bread is simple to make. I mostly make bread using my bread machine because it is easy and I don’t have to work the dough. The machine does it all for me. That may sound a bit lazy, but why else would this type of small kitchen appliance be created? For people like me! LOL…

To make the recipe, you first have to cook the mushrooms and leeks in butter and spiced with thyme. Once the mixture is slightly cooked, you placed in the baking pan. The remaining ingredients are then added and followed by your manufacturer instructions. It is always good to follow the manufacturer’s instructions because not all machines are the same.

You can choose any mushroom you prefer. I usually make mine with Portobella mushrooms because of availability and price. The fancy mushroom can be very pricy. Whereas Portobello and White Mushrooms also called Button Mushrooms are mostly available in supermarkets, are cheaper and usually on sale.
