Enokitake or Enoki (Flammulina Populicola) is a Japanese mushroom. Generally, Enoki has a mild delicious flavour and a nice crunchy feel.
Enoki mushrooms are rich in dietary fiber and protein as well as a significant amount of niacin, calcium, potassium, selenium and iron. They also have anti-inflammatory properties and are excellent immune system boosters. They are 100% cholesterol free.
Enoki mushrooms are commonly used in Asian cuisine. They will complement soups, salads, stir-fries and noodle dishes. Add to omelets, risottos, hot pot and curries. Enoki mushrooms look great rolled up in spring rolls and sushi or wrapped with bacon or thin slices of beef and grilled. Their flavor and texture pair well with soba noodles, soy, ginger, bacon, lemongrass, fresh herbs, seafood and butter.
