My affair with mushrooms started way long ago. Button mushrooms being the one that I love so much. And why not? Mushrooms are low in calories, carb, fat, sodium and cholesterol! And check out the nutrition facts:I normally have button mushrooms (or sweedish browns or small portobello) in pasta, pizza, noodles, either fried or in soups, salads and - even tom yum. I remember making mushroom tom yum when I dont have much meat in my fridge. Enoki mushrooms are perfect for salads and stir frys.
Simple recipe I made last night, with button and enoki mushrooms:
150gm button mushrooms, sliced
150gm enoki mushrooms
1 small carrot, julienned
1 tablespoon oyster sauce
1 tablespoon light soy sauce
1 tablespoon chicken stock
1 green onion, sliced
1 garlic, chopped
dash of salt & pepper
1/3 cup water
1. Pre-mix the oyster/soy sauce, chicken stock with water. Put aside while you heat up the pan.
2. Heat some olive oil and fry the garlic and onions. Pour in the mixture and stir.
3. Add carrots and cook till soften, and pour in the mushrooms, stir until they soften a little.
4. Add salt & pepper, stir, and transfer to serving plate.
Everyone loved this as I wish I had made some more! ;-P Now I am off to start my Eid Mubarak baking project. Yay!
