Black Fungus Salad with Onion

Posted on

This colourful mu-err mushroom (black fungus) salad with coriander leaf (cilantro) and onion contains re-hydrated goji berries.

I prefer this salad to the one with carrots, but my favourite black fungus salad to date is the one with cucumbers and star anise.

Creamy Vegan Pasta with Mushrooms

Posted on

I used this recipe with cashews in place of hemp seed. I used more wine than the recipe called for and let the mushrooms simmer longer. It was quite creamy and had sufficient flavour, plus I could not taste the cauliflower.  I liked the potato/cashew cream in this recipe better than the bean-based sauce in the creamy summer vegetable pasta.

I had to modify this recipe because I could not find any pearl onions, which I replaced with chopped onion.

Black Fungus with Marinade

I am very fond of black fungus, also known as mu-err or wood-ear mushroom. This is another salad preparation which includes carrots and coriander leaf (cilantro). I used a green chilli instead of a red one because I didn’t have any fresh red ones.

I prefer the cucumber salad with its hints of star anise, but this one is quicker to make.

Pasta in Creamy Summer Vegetable Sauce

I took this recipe from One-Dish Vegan by Robin Robertson, although I opted to use mu-err mushrooms instead of white ones, and left 1/4 of the vegetables intact to give it a little more texture. The sauce is made from courgette/zucchini, mushroom, tomato, onion, garlic, sweet tomato, white beans and herbs.

I didn’t find the sauce that creamy but rather on the boring side. I won’t make this again.

Garlic Mushroom Bok Choy

I worked off of this recipe, but replaced the shiitake mushrooms with a mix of basic white mushrooms and mu-err mushrooms. I like this and will probably make it again.

Black Fungus Cucumber Salad

I modified this recipe by briefly boiling the mu-err mushrooms (black fungus) to ensure they were tender. I really liked this salad, in part because I love both star anise and mu-err mushrooms.
