Day 316

Enoki Mushrooms

These alien-antennae edibles really are fun-guys. They’re super cute, and their aliases include the “velvet shank” — which, of course, delights my juvenile sensibilities. They don’t have an overwhelming flavor. But they also don’t have that disturbing mushroom texture. I threw some into a broccoli stir-fry a few stirs before serving … reminded me of bean sprouts with a touch of mushroom taste.

  1. Thanks for this. I didn’t know the texture was so different – might convince a few of my tribe to get on board.

    • They’re not crunchy like bean sprouts. Just kind of reminded me of those little fellows in a stir-fry. They’re more like a spaghetti texture when they’re cooked — and I hear you have to be careful only to cook them a tiny bit or they’ll lose what little flavor they have. A lot of people eat them raw, which I should have tried.

  2. My favourite mushroom in the world…ok, besides truffles of course! 😉

  3. Oh no! 365 days are almost up. Do you have another project in mind?
