Frequently asked questions

How to store mushrooms?

Mushrooms have a short shelf life so buy them when you are ready to use them. Keep them in their original packaging in the fridge. If they are bought loose, store them in a paper bag or place in a container and wrap them with plastic wrap that’s punctured with a few holes and then placed them in the fridge. You may store your garlic mushrooms leftovers in a container in the fridge for 3-5 days.

How to cook mushrooms

There are many different ways of cooking and preparing mushrooms. Some may eat certain mushrooms raw, while others enjoy cooking them. Different ways of cooking could be frying, sauteeing, microwaving, boiling, baking, grilling, or roasting.
There’s been some research that shows that the shorter the cooking time of mushrooms the more of its nutritional values are retained. They also mentioned that grilling is better than boiling or frying mushrooms which increased its antioxidant activity.

Are mushrooms keto?

Mushrooms are a great option for those on a keto-friendly diet since they are low in carbs, fat, and calories. They are good to add to any meal for some added fiber.

Can you freeze mushrooms?

Even though you can technically dry the raw mushrooms really well and then freeze them, when you remove them from the freeze and thaw them, you may end up with some soggy mushrooms. They will not be like the fresh mushrooms you get from the market. You may freeze cooked mushrooms in a tightly sealed Ziploc bag or container.

    Oh, yum! It was delicious. Next time I going to try it with different types of mushrooms. Also, rather than chopping the garlic, I’m going to mince it so that it blends better. I scaled it down because I live alone and sometimes that takes quite a bit of experimentation until I hit the exact quantities for each ingredient, but this recipe is more than worth the effort. Thank you.

    I made this recipe and my Dad, who doesn’t care for mushrooms but tolerates them absolutely LOVED them and said I can make them for him anytime and he will gladly eat them! Everyone enjoyed them! Delicious! I followed recipe as written!

    Just amazing over steaks. The Brie is a game changer! Super easy! “Healthy” wasn’t per-say on the table so added some unsalted butter to mushrooms to sauté (1 tablespoon).

    Tried it today, served on a pumpernickel toast. Perfect stimulation for picky taste buds. Will be making this again very soon!
