Mushroom Recipes

General notes:

  • Cook all mushrooms. Nutrients locked in the cell walls are very hard to digest when raw. Cooking also neutralizes naturally occurring toxins.
  • Similar to humans, fresh mushrooms (particularly shiitake) will produce Vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. For best results, leave gill side up in a sunny location for a day.

 Personally selected but not yet tested by our in-house taste-tester. When you use gourmet mushrooms, there is no need for vegetable stock, processed foods, sugar, etc. They are also a great meat or tofu substitute for those who wish to eat more naturally. Simply substitute your favourite log-grown mushrooms, or reduce the proportion of mushrooms due to the fuller taste of these mushrooms.
