These Asian Mushrooms Will Bring You The Perfect Amount Of Umami
By David Tran
Shimeji mushrooms, or beech mushrooms, have natural umami and are a common ingredient in Japanese cuisine.
There are actually over 20 different species of shimeji mushrooms, but the most commonly used ones are white and brown shimeji mushrooms.
The mushrooms naturally have a bitter taste that is eliminated in the cooking process, and they also have great benefits like high fiber, protein, and potassium.
Shimeji mushrooms are versatile and can be added to nearly any recipe, and they enhance the flavors in meat-heavy dishes, but make sure to always cook them thoroughly.
