Angel Hair Mushrooms

If you can get enoki mushrooms in your area, these make a great side dish. While my sister was visiting, we had them as a bed for lamb chops in coconut sauce, a stuffing for nori rolls, a topping for soup, and on their own. Mary came up with the name – Angel Hair Mushrooms. Delicate, crunchy, and slightly salty, these are sure to please.

Angel Hair Mushrooms

Some larger grocery store chains carry enoki mushrooms, but many Japanese grocery stores like Mitsuwa or other Asian markets will have them as well. 

1 package enoki mushrooms

2 tsp coconut oil

salt to taste (use pink sea salt for best results)

 

Chop mushrooms into thirds, so the strands are about one inch long. Break up the bottom part of the mushrooms so they don’t clump together too much. Add the mushrooms to a small saute pan and cook on medium heat for about two minutes. This removes some of the excess moisture from the mushrooms. Add the coconut oil and turn the heat to low. Let the mushrooms sit for 5-7 minutes until a nice brown crust forms. Flip and let sit on low heat for another 5-7 minutes. Add salt to taste!

Enjoy as is or serve with: Happy Cabbage, Nori Wraps, Frazzled Scallops, & Beef Curry Stew.
