Even though Vince didn’t have much luck growing mushrooms in Texas, there are several places around here (MO) that grow them and sell them at the farmers’ market.
Yesterday evening we went to the farmer’s market and bought a package of Blue Oyster mushrooms and a package of Lion’s Mane mushrooms, along with a few tomatoes, squash and some elephant garlic.
I cooked the mushrooms, separately, but both with a garlic butter sauce and served them over pasta with parmesan cheese, chopped tomatoes and parsely.
The Blue Oysters are on the left and the Lion’s Mane on the right.
This is the kind of meal I could eat every day – quick to fix, not terribly heavy and yummy!
I’ve already contacted the mushroom lady and will get more today or tomorrow, then we’ll go back to the farmers’ market on Saturday. I think there are more vendors on weekends.
I had heard about the farmers’ market the whole time we lived here before and never was able to make it over here so I’m very happy that now it’s probably not much more than 5 miles from our house.
