Been missing having meat floss in your porridge? Make your own vegan mushroom floss in 30 minutes with just one main ingredient: oyster mushroom stems! Your vegan morning porridge has never tasted this good.
As it turns out, mushroom floss has a pretty distinct aroma and taste (that amplifies even more once the mushrooms are dehydrated. Funny enough, the flavor of the mushroom floss reminds me of those dried shredded squid snacks.
Because the mushroom floss is made entirely of mushrooms, the texture is still slightly chewy (not completely flaky like regular meat floss). It is also worth noting that the since mushrooms absorb moisture from the air, they will gradually soften. This is true even if you kept it in an airtight container. So, the mushroom floss is best enjoyed immediately!
A Simple Congee
When I think about a comforting, warming breakfast, congee usually springs to mind. When cooked properly, the congee is smooth and creamy with a hint of ginger. Of course, the recipe I’m showcasing today is just a basic congee. I personally also love to add some miso and shiitake dashi broth to the congee as a finish.
