Brown shimeji

The brown shimeji mushroom is very similar to the white shimeji mushroom. The mushroom gets its brown colour from being cultivated in the light. The brown shimeji mushroom is grown here in the Netherlands and is available all year round. 

Taste and application

The brown shimeji mushroom (also known as the brown beech mushroom) has a wonderful texture, smell and taste. It has a deep, earthy nutty flavour that is strongly reminiscent of autumn. It is not recommended to eat the brown shimeji mushroom raw, because then the taste is bitter. The mushroom goes well with fish dishes. It contains many types of vitamin B and fibre and is therefore very healthy. Are you looking for inspiration for using the brown shimeji mushroom in dishes? Then you can go here.
