The other day I was in my local grocery store and found some very exiting mushrooms. How exciting could mushrooms be, you ask? If you’re me, very, as the usual choice of mushrooms that we have here in Barcelona supermarkets is either white button or oyster. Never a portobello or a shiitake in sight. Forget about cremini. At some times of the year you can find local wild harvest varieties, but to be honest I’ve never been convinced, as I usually find them bland and muddy tasting.
However with my recent discovery the tide seems to be turning. Local supermarkets have started carrying a mix of “mini mushrooms” from the Petras brand. Petras is a well-known mushroom seller in Catalonia with a stand in the famous Boqueria market. Until now, the Boqueria market was the only place I knew of to get these more “exotic” varieties of mushrooms. However a trip downtown just to get mushrooms has always seemed a little over the top. No more!
Petras’ “mini mushroom mix” has two varieties of shimeji, shiitake, and (of course) oyster. I snapped up a container of them (despite the price, which is over 2 euros for just 250 grams!), super inspired to make all kinds of lovely mushroom dishes. Here’s the first one: creamy mushroom crêpes. It’s really simple and lets the flavour of the mushroom shine through. Adapted from http://theveglife.com/almond-milk-crepes-vegan/
