What Are Oyster Mushrooms?
Oyster mushrooms are winning the world over for their fragile surface and gentle, appetising flavour. The mushrooms regularly have expansive, slight, oyster-or fan-formed covers and are white, dark, or tan, with gills coating the underside. The covers are in some cases frilly-edged and can be found in bunches of little mushrooms or separately as bigger mushrooms. Oyster mushrooms are more costly than white button mushrooms however less so than more uncommon mushrooms like shiitake and take little prep since they can be utilised entire or chopped. They go very well into vegan dishes as they are versatile and can be a part of almost all cuisines in the world.
How Cook With Oyster Mushrooms :
Like all mushrooms, oyster mushrooms act practically like wipes, absorbing any water they come into contact with. Try not to leave them sitting in water, in any event, for cleaning them. Developed oyster mushrooms typically needn't bother with much cleaning—essentially clear off any pieces anywhere with a dry paper towel. A sodden paper towel can be utilised on extra grimy mushrooms.
Cleaned mushrooms can be sautéed, pan-seared, braised, broiled, singed, or barbecued. Utilise the mushrooms entire, cut, or basically attacked properly estimated pieces.
While you can eat oyster mushrooms raw, they can also be very lovely added to
plates of mixed greens, they will, in general, have a somewhat metallic flavour when uncooked. Cooking draws out their fragile flavour, transforming their springy surface into something exceptionally smooth. We suggest utilising oyster mushrooms for cooked dishes and utilising button mushrooms for servings of mixed greens and other crude dishes. Oyster mushrooms go very well with plant-based recipes and can be added to almost all oriental stirfies.
Battered Oyster Mushrooms and Broccoli Stirfry in Oyster Sauce!!
- Battered Mushrooms: This is basically nothing but an added step of frying the mushrooms in some batter to make them crispy and make their body stand tall through the process of stir-frying. This step can totally be avoided and Mushrooms can be added directly into the pan to reduce the fat content of the dish and make it weightloss friendly.
- Broccoli : I usually add the raw broccoli straight to the pan as i want the Broccoli to stay fresh and have a bite rather than make it soggy.
- Oyster Sauce: Any vegetarian oyster sauce that is available in your local oriental store would go, I usually prefer my sauce to be VEGAN, but you can always read the ingredients and select whatever you like.
