ShroomSpy continues its culinary exploration with a recipe that merges the tender delicacy of Enoki mushrooms with the rich traditions of Middle Eastern cuisine. Our Enoki Mushroom Fatayer is not just a dish; it's a celebration of flavors and textures, promising to be a memorable addition to any meal.

Why Enoki Mushrooms?

Enoki mushrooms, with their long, slender stems and small caps, are not only a visual delight but also offer a mild, sweet taste and a crunchy texture. They absorb flavors wonderfully, making them an excellent ingredient in the Fatayer, adding both nutritional value and a unique taste profile.


  • 2 cups Enoki mushrooms, ends trimmed and separated
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Warm water, as needed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish
  • Lemon wedges, for serving


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a large bowl, mix the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Gradually add warm water and knead until a soft dough forms. Cover and let it rise in a warm place for about an hour, or until doubled in size.

  2. Cook the Enoki: Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic, sautéing until translucent. Add the Enoki mushrooms, cumin, paprika, coriander, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are soft. Set aside to cool.

  3. Shape the Fatayer: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C) and grease a baking sheet with olive oil. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into circles using a round cutter. Place a spoonful of the mushroom mixture in the center of each circle. Fold the edges over to form a triangle, pinching the corners to seal.

  4. Bake: Place the Fatayer on the prepared baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.

  5. Serve: Garnish with fresh parsley and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

  • Chemical analysis, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant activities of polysaccharides from Pholiota nameko by fractional precipitation

  • This study explored Pholiota nameko (P. nameko) polysaccharide fractions, PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80, purified by gradient concentrations of ethanol (40%, 60%, and 80% (v/v)). The physicochemical properties, functional group composition, moisture-preserving, and antioxidant ability were determined. The results indicate that the polysaccharide contents of PNP-40, PNP-60, and PNP-80 are 45.12%, 78.04%, and 72.22%, respectively, while the β-glucan, protein, and uronic acid contents are 20.20%, 12.20%, and 10.15%, respectively; 11.24%, 14.53%, and 26.94%; and 5.99%, 7.73%, and 3.78%. Furthermore, PNP-60 has better moisture absorption, while PNP-80 has better antioxidant ability and H2O2-injury resistance activity

  • In May 1950 my husband undertook a pilgrimage to remote Serignan to see the Fabre water-colors, and he picked out more than a dozen for our book. Two years later, finding himself again in Paris, he called once more on Professor Heim, who by now had become the Director of the Museum National, a worthy successor in that great post to the illustrious Buffon. Indeed, he sits at Buffon's very table, in Buffon's very room, where the elegant i8th century furnishings have remained unchanged, the walls adorned with the graceful i8th century oils of Jean-Jacques Bachelier, depicting the birds of the several continents.
