The Blazei mushroom is a stout mushroom with a truncated earthen white stem and a semi rounded brown cap that begins to scale with age.
It is considered to be one of the most important edible and culinary-medicinal mushroom species. Blazei mushrooms contain significant amounts of beta-glucans, which are naturally occurring polysaccharides known to have immune-boosting properties.
The mushrooms may be consumed fresh or dried and reconstituted in stock to flavor broth, or steeped in hot water to use as tea. The sweet almond-like flavor of the Blazei pairs well with mild, fresh cheeses, herbs, tofu and Asian greens. Mix with other mild, wild mushrooms as strongly flavored varieties may compete with the sweetness of the Blazei.
How to Prepare:
Soak until they're plumped and softened, about 20-25 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the mushrooms to a cutting board, squeezing any excess liquid from the mushrooms back into the soaking liquid. Let cool. Remove and discard any tough stems.
