The Ultimate Mushroom Stir-Fry Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced bell pepper (any color)
  • 1 cup sliced chestnut mushrooms
  • 1 cup sliced white button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup enoki mushrooms, stems trimmed
  • 1/4 cup maitake mushrooms, torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional, for extra umami)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Prep work: Wash and slice the vegetables and mushrooms. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger.
  2. Heat it up: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat.
  3. Aromatics: Add the onion and bell pepper and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Mushroom magic: Add the chestnut and button mushrooms and cook until they start to release their liquid and brown slightly, about 5 minutes.
  5. More mushrooms! Stir in the enoki and maitake mushrooms and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
  6. Flavor boost: Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds, until fragrant.
  7. Sauce time: Pour in the soy sauce, oyster sauce (if using), and sesame oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Finish strong: Cook for another minute or two, until the sauce thickens slightly.
  9. Serve and savor: Enjoy your mushroom stir-fry immediately over rice, noodles, or your favorite base!

Tips:

  • Customize it: Add other vegetables like broccoli, snap peas, or carrots for extra color and nutrition.
  • Protein power: Include tofu, chicken, shrimp, or beef for a heartier meal.
  • Spice it up: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a touch of heat.

  • 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

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.
