Oyster mushrooms (Pleurotus ostreatus) tend to have a subtle, savory anise flavor. Because their flavor is mild, without the strong earthiness of some mushroom varieties, they work well in a range of different dishes. Oyster mushrooms also take on a tender, pleasing texture when cooked. Cooking methods like frying, roasting, and grilling can retain more texture in the mushrooms while braising and sautéing makes them softer. 25g of dried oyster mushrooms is the equivalent of approximately 150g of fresh mushrooms.
