A Fungus Amoung us

I find them, I buy them and I really want to grow them, I could eat them with anything except for some reason I dont like them raw and that is mushrooms. I have had so many varieties both wild and tame from here to Timbuktu, but today I just have a big bunch of regular button mushrooms and I am eager to try something new. Any suggestions?

I usually saute them in butter, a little beef broth with Mrs. Dash until they are almost dry. The flavor is more intense and the texture is quite firm.

well, if it was me, i'd sit down with that whole bowl full and dip them in ranch and eat every. single. one. or i'd saute them with some wild rice. yum.

Not a huge fan of shrooms, but you go right ahead.

I can't think of anything particularly innovative. I eat them practically daily, but it's usually just chop and toss. Although, and this is will probably be the death of me, I've been contemplating a chocolate and mushroom mousse lately. It would be savoury, almost certainly spicy. I put it forward with the caveat that some things should probably never see the light of day, but someone else has made mushroom mousse and, it would appear, it was successful.

i am the same way. not crazy about them raw. at all...but i like dicky's way...or pull of the stems, chop them with garlic, breadcrumbs & feta, restuff them and bake topped with butter! damn. i'm hungry!

I was gonna suggest Tanya's idea. So, what did ya make with those fungi?

The trouble with sauteed mushrooms is that there is never enough between the washing and the way they cook down to a tiny spoonful! I just love them and could eat a bowlful just with butter. Sorry, nothing creative here.

washing...when are you supposed to wash them??? you brush them off and thats it...only wash the real "rustic" ones you find in the forrest all covered in bugs.
