Is enoki mushroom a great addition to your cooking?

Enoki mushrooms are my favorite since theyre high in vitamins, minerals, and healthy amino acids. They have low cholesterol and high dietary fiber content and are high in antioxidants. A hundred grams of dry enoki mushrooms contains 346 calories, with 53% of those calories coming from carbohydrates, 26% from protein, 26% from dietary fiber, and 3% from fat.

Wow!

Imagine all of those goodies packed into a cute and healthy mushroom?

Yuummm.

So, first things first. We’re going to start with this delicious meal or side dish.

Most dishes will follow a similar process and heres a brief outline of the steps to take. 

  • CHOP. Chop off the root portion of the plant near the growing medium.
  • REPEAT. Follow the same technique for the brown enoki mushrooms, attempting to waste as little as possible.
  • PREPARE. Prepare other vegetables and cut into similar sizes for even cooking.
  • SIMMER. Bring three cups of dashi or blanching water to a boil and add all the vegetables including the enoki mushrooms (as one piece or gently broken apart.) 
  • SEASON. Most Japanese recipes use a combination of sake, mirin, and soy sauce as a base, but of course there are many other ways to season as well. And below, you’ll learn of three different ways to season your enoki mushrooms! 

for this enoki ankake, all you need is a bowl of rice for a complete and satisfyingly spicy meal!

And our second best enoki mushroom dish..

Nope.. Just kidding. These recipes are not in any particular order because each one is unique and tasty in its own right. Have you enjoyed our first dish?

You’ll probably want to try this one as well.

This one is going to be sweet and sour in equal measure.

Sweet vinegar pickle, or “amazuzuke,” is the Japanese name for this type of pickle or otsukemono (japanese pickle). 

not sure how that flavor would be with mushrooms?

well there’s only one way to find out!

but i do think you’ll be in for a treat if you put it in the refrigerator once it’s cooled.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy!

And the last but not the least enoki dish..

Yep. Not least because if you loved the last two enoki mushroom recipes, you’d probably enjoy this one as well.

After blanching the vegetables together briefly, all you’ve gotta do is mix and serve!

That’s all there is to making most Japanese style namuru dishes
