SAUTÉED OYSTER MUSHROOMS
This quick preparation really showcases the gentle flavor of oyster mushrooms. The mild dish, brightened with a small amount of vinegar, helps balance the forceful spices of the rest of the meal.
Prep time: 15 min
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 cups of your oyster mushrooms (any large ones cut into 1-inch pieces), stems trimmed
1 teaspoons white vinegar
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot.
Sauté mushrooms with 1/2 teaspoon salt until golden, about 8 minutes. Add vinegar and sauté until evaporated, about 1 minute.
Season with salt, then transfer to a plate to cool. Serve at room temperature.
Mushrooms can be made 4 hours ahead and kept at room temperature.

Lemon-Garlic Oyster Mushrooms
(A Delicious Vegan Side!)
by Binny Liu, mindbodygreen.com
Prep time: 10 minutes
3 cups oyster mushrooms
1 cup of loose spinach leaves
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 cloves garlic
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. salt
Either slice or dice the garlic cloves depending on your preference.
Heat up the oil in a pan with the garlic and sea salt for a couple of minutes.
Add the oyster mushrooms in and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add in the lemon juice and turn the heat down to low-med, cover with lid and let simmer for 5 minutes. The mushrooms should be nice and soft by then.
Add in the spinach, by now you can turn the heat off. The residual heat will soften and wilt the spinach.
Cover with lid for a few more minutes and voila! Your oyster mushrooms are finished!
