Oyster mushrooms

Postby Hope » November 8th, 2017, 8:33 am

Is there a way of cooking these that actually makes them taste of something and not feel like you are eating leather?

On the low fodmap diet, these are the only mushrooms I can eat. I can't have any garlic or onions etc (garlic oil is ok, though).

I really miss mushrooms, and squash (another no-no) :( I'm getting so bored of always eating the same few veg.

(although I am generally feeling an awful lot better, only time I have been ill recently was after eating beans!)

I've always felt oyster mushrooms were over-rated :( Are you allowed soy sauce or sesame oil? Miso?

I add them to a noodle soup towards the very end, along with shredded chinese leaf. The texture is always fine but I wouldn't say the flavour is strong. Although there does tend to be star anise etc going on too so that's not surprising.

I don't know much about the fodmap diet I'm afraid so I've no idea if that is any use!

Suffs - yes all those are fine to eat. (not cabbage though, well some are, but I don't get on with them)

OMCO - do they cook ok in a short time? I always find the stalks are really tough and leathery, or do you not eat those?

PS - it's more a method of cooking I was asking advice on. This diet is so complicated, I don't expect anyone to know what I can eat!

I remove the stalks ... they are very tough.

Sorry, yes we remove any tough stalks too, so they tend to cook pretty quickly :)
