Mushrooms are as mysterious as they are delicious. Although confused and prepared as vegetables, these are actually fungi, a type of living organism that has no roots, leaves, flowers or seeds. Despite they can be grown, mushrooms grow wild in many regions of the world.
There are quite a few varieties of mushrooms such as paris mushrooms, crimini, portobello or pleurotos. The mushroom crimini looks like a button and acquires a coffee tone and has a more distinct flavor. The portobelo mushroom, large in size and flavorful as meat, can be a singular vegetarian entry and is actually a crimini mushroom on steroids.
Many of the mushrooms grow to light, following the sun just like plant. I follow them, in their various shapes and forms, stuffed or in a wonderful risotto!
