Can you guys tell me some of your recipes for mushrooms? I got some and have never cooked with them before and all the recipes I have looked up call for a lot of oil or butter. Thanks 🙂

For a nice batch of mushrooms, have three dishes, one with flour, one with bread crumbs, and one with whipped eggs (shouldn't need more than two). Wash and pat dry the mushrooms with a paper towel. Dip into the eggs, then the flour, then the bread crumbs. When all are battered, fry in a skillet. Let set to cool off but serve when still warm.

 

Steamed mushrooms are also good, and you can simply sprinkle with seasonings.

 

Type of mushroom makes a difference on best way to prepare them. The recipe I wrote out is really good when it comes to wild mushrooms.

I was once told that you are what you eat and then I just cried and cried and cried cause no matter how much I wanted to be one I just couldn't bring myself to eating a skinny person.

You can do any of your recipes, just use a nonstick skillet instead of oil/butter, or use butter spray.

Personally I like mushrooms raw, but they're also very good pan-fried with a bit of butter or olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper, and maybe some parsley

I like them raw or steamed or fresh from the oven, doesn't really matter. But I like to de-stem them and use them as "cups" for stuff like cottage cheese or some low cal sauce. 
This is also great for bbqs, looks as if you're eating a shitload of stuff.

Slice them. Add a few squirts of low-cal cooking spray. Add salt + garlic powder. Fry until golden brown on each side :)

I just do soy sauce and garlic salt, yumm

(In a non-stick pan, cook for 10-ish mins on low/medium heat with a splash of water to help it cook, take it off when they're brown and almost no liquid left!)

I sauté with other veggies in a pan with either a splash of vinegar, water, or veggie broth and add seasonings. Or I do the same thing except roast them in the oven

Have you ever tried cream of mushroom soup? There's a fairly filling and relatively low calorie recipe here:

I usually use minced garlic, a *small* splash of olive oil (usually like 1 tsp or smaller), and then soy sauce and a lot of water. I'll cover it with a lid to steam the tops of them. I don't have an oil fear, so I'm fine with small amount of olive oil with my cooking.

 

I've yet to try, but I'm like 80% certain you can microwave them with a little (like maybe 1 tbsp) water to steam them that way.


Just let me relapse without judgement

I pan fry mine in a little bit of soy sauce, garlic powder, and onion powder.

Sometimes I'll do the same with balsamic vinegar

For basic sauteing of mushrooms, they're really spongey so you shouldn't saute them with oil. This is because they just soak it up and become soggy with oil.

 

The tough (I think tritin) structures break down better when you saute them with a lot of water. The mushrooms will initially absorb the water into those spongey pockets but then release it once the water and heat breaks down the compartments. Once they are like 95% cooked you can cook them with an itty bit of butter for a nice flavor. That's how you get that nice compacted, dense texture rather than still being spongey and bleeding oil. 

 

I like to stuff portobellos with random things. I like taking the stems and sauteing them with garlic and putting them in a blender with some kind of bean, blending it, stuffing the caps, baking them for 20 ish minutes then topping with a tiny bit of cheese and brushing the bottom of the caps with a little bit of oil.

 

I don't overuse it, but I still cook with oil because it's how I get fats in my diet besides cream in coffee and my joints hurt like hell if I start excluding it. The oil is unneccessary in both cookings I mentioned, just for some added flavor

i usually put them sliced up in a bowl with some salt on top and then i just pop them in the microwave! it steals them kinda and it’s really good if you want something quick

I love to sauteed them with spices and then deglaze the pan with a white cooking wine which adds amazing flavor! Buy the I can't believe it's not butter that comes in a spray bottle because it's 0 calories and your mushrooms will thank you
