Roast Mushrooms salad Bowl

In the mid 1970’s most of the mushrooms eaten in Australia were sold in cans.  That seems odd now, but I can tell you when I was a kid we had mushrooms most mornings and they came straight from a can. There was more mushroom sauce in the can than actual mushroom but no one seemed to care back then. Today Australians eat 95% of their mushrooms fresh, thank God.

  • Do not soak mushrooms in water the mushrooms will absorb water, just like they absorb oil and stock.
  • Caps and stems can be used in recipes.
  • Although mushrooms are not high in B12, they are still the only non-animal fresh food source of B12!

    Anything with mushrooms are amazing by me, I just love them. My favourite has to be shitaki, they are so delicious when roasted. I recently discovered that portabello mushrooms are just overgrown creminis too!
    I also recall having canned mushrooms always in the pantry, although Mom never liked to buy the canned soup, too much salt.

  • I’m at the moment obsessed with dried shiitake mushrooms. I was given a recipe on how to make them totally umami and I can’t stop eating them! This sounds delicious too.
