Mushrooms

Posted on

I’m a mushroom lover, I’ll start with that little factoid.

You know what’s gross though? How the ‘experts’ say you should only wipe off your mushrooms instead of washing them. This is because mushrooms hold water and it changes the flavor.

Well you know what I think about that? Mushrooms are grown in, pardon my french, shit. I don’t care what you feed your animals, poop is still poop, and I’m never going to stop washing my mushrooms.

About laceythevegan

I'm a reader, a food lover, a crazy cat lady, an animal lover, local shopper and local music supporter. You can find me in East Nashville most of the time, shopping, having a drink at a locally owned bar, or eating food at a local restaurant. I like cumin and smoked paprika way more than I should, winter squashes make me happy, and while I do like most fruits, I only *love* berries and mangoes. I'd rather have salty snacks than sweets, and the darker chocolate is, the better. I still think Earth Balance is the best fake butter, Vegenaise is the best vegan mayo, and Almond Milk tastes better than soy milk. Chia seeds are my favorite egg substitute for the most part, and pumpkin tends to bind better than applesauce-especially in chocolate goods. I know a lot about food and nutrition, but that doesn't mean I'm the healthiest person. I tend to avoid eating out because I know I can make food that tastes better at home.

  1. Hahah, is that really true? All mushrooms? Weeeird. I always wash my mushrooms anyway and then just squeeze them out because I’m weird about paper towel use…

  2. I’ve read conflicting information about the washing. I wash!

  3. Hell yes! I will wash forever! I remember Alton Brown totally disproved the water thing. He weighed the mushrooms before and after he rinsed them. It was the same.
