Known as the meat of the vegetable world, edible mushrooms are used extensively in cooking, in many cuisines (notably Chinese, Korean, European, and Japanese). Their fleshy texture is a great way to substitute meats in many dishes. Most mushrooms sold in supermarkets have been commercially grown on mushroom farms. The most popular of these, commonly known as button or white mushroom, is considered safe for most people to eat because it is grown in controlled, sterilized environments. Several varieties of mushrooms exist and complement the type of cooking technique and flavors involved – including whites, crimini, portobello, shiitake, maitake or hen-of-the-woods, oyster, and enoki. You can easily find these at your common grocery story.
