What to do with Enoki Mushrooms

 Sometimes I wonder if people actually read my blog. I track the number of viewers on Google Analytics, but comments are quickest way I know that someone actually stopped by to read the post.  But then when I call some of my friends, we'll be having a conversation and they will casually bring up something I posted about.
 Hence, this post is dedicated to my sister.  She has set up her homepage to my blog because she's a nice sister and also so she can read about my cooking experiments.  The other day we were talking about her great deal 100 grams of enoki mushrooms for $0.33. That's pretty cheap. Being the younger sister I am, I burst her bubble and told her the asian market I shop at had that same special going on. 
My sister asked me how I usually cook my enoki mushrooms and I cook it in an Izakaya style with butter, garlic, salt and pepper. 

Here are my other enoki mushroom creations.
Simple soup (kind of tastes like nira soup)
Dried Seaweed
enoki mushrooms
hon-dashi -fish stock (same thing we use to make saimin broth)
Salt, pepper, soy sauce to taste.

Enoki mushroom, caramelized onion, mozzarella, and goat cheese flatbread pizza
Goat cheese or any kind of cheese you want
Caramelized onions
Olive oil
Bought the flatbread for ~$5 at Sam's Club

Kay Reag, hope you enjoyed this mushroom post!

enoki mushrooms are without a doubt my favorite mushrooms! it's probably because they most resemble noodles which makes them fun to eat. i love putting them into soups and korean stews.

i have a ton of enoki that Mike's mom gave me and was looking for a way to use them up. I like the idea of just doing a butter saute and eating them straight up!

I love enoki mushrooms! That's partly because I had a friend in Hawaii whose last name is Enoki so they always make me think of her :) I like using them in soups.
