what it is
Although more and more well known, this mushroom is still a relatively unknown product in European cuisine at the moment. And that should change, we think, because it is a very special species. That’s why we put the Eryngii in the spotlight.
use in the kitchen
The official Latin name is Pleurotus eryngii. In Dutch, the oyster mushroom is often called king oyster mushroom. The mushroom grows like a gray oyster mushroom in a bunch. This oyster mushroom has a special taste, namely Umami. A little spicy, nutty and fiber-rich in structure. Due to the large amount of fiber and protein in this product, it is also an excellent meat substitute. Cut them into coarse slices or strips and pack them in a pan. Or process them in a delicious stir-fry dish.
So if you want to eat less meat, think of this delicious meat substitute!
