4. No. They'll get lost with all the spicy chili flavors.

If you eat meat, sautee them and put them on a burger or steak.

5. Seems a waste to me, I love shiitakes. Maybe roast them with garlic as a side dish?

6. I used to, but no longer.

When I was a young cook, I think I put mushrooms in almost everything. Now I use a medley of beans, usually black, kidney, and pinto, and leave the mushrooms out.

You could make shiitake bacon which is a dead ringer for the real thing.

14. I think the flavor would be completely lost

so it would be a waste of good mushrooms, just odd little bits of weird, rubbery texture in the chili and nothing else.

I think they're best on their own, sauteed in butter, seasoned with nutmeg, and eaten on toast.

16. mmmm. that sounds good.

 

and my kind of cooking.

havent been out yet today, but should have a flush of wine caps today, too.
a pleasant surprise they were. had them 5 yrs ago, then they didnt come back. but they popped up about 10' away this fall. had 4 flushes so far. had a good rain last night, and i watered them yesterday. so hoping.

20. I'm a mushroom kinda guy. It lends to the umami in the pot. I then use less meat.

Yay It's a textural issue.
