Two questions one post. There's thrifty for you. And I like to be thrifty so when I buy mushrooms I inevitably buy those 'value' packs of 750g in one go.

 

Except it's been a bit warmer here in the UK the past few days than of late, so the 'thrifty' 750g pack of 'value' mushies I bought all turned to actual mush before I'd even cooked any of them and so in the composter they went, much to my partners chagrin: "I never got to eat any of them!" quoth he.

 

Of course I should have intervened a bit quicker to save them or use them up, but that's now by the by, what I want to know is how do you both *store* and *cook* moderately larger quantities of mushrooms?

 

Any tips or recipes welcome! I'd love any bulk cooking ideas in particular.

Well in answer to my own thread, the French mushroom multi-purpose 'pate' called Duxelles is probably what I should have knocked up. Most recipes call for butter, but here's a vegan alternative:

I find they last me a few days or more when they're kept in the refrigerator. I don't wash them until I use them.

 

I'm pretty simple when it comes to mushrooms. Saute them with onions, salt, and pepper and eat them over baked potatoes, rice, pasta, in a tofu or egg scramble, or add them to pasta sauces. They're good roasted, too.

Oh this looks fantastic, thanks! I have been looking for a recipe like this! I'm making some fancy type appetizers to bring to an event, and this is exactly what I need. I even have truffle oil already. :-)
