Like us, the mushrooms love coffee and grow beautifully in it.
Oyster mushrooms are fantastic to cook with – we’ve got a few recipe suggestions. They have an enticing velvety appearance, smooth firm texture and a delicately rich flavour with a fresh peppery scent. This makes them an excellent ingredient for soups, risottos, casseroles– or luxurious mushrooms on toast!
Nutritionally, they’re a treat too and great for your health as they’re high in protein and fibre, low calorie and contain zero fat and cholesterol. Oyster mushrooms are naturally rich in vitamins and nutrients including vitamin B and vitamin C and significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, folic acid and niacin.
They also contain polysaccharides which can strengthen the immune system, can naturally help decrease cholesterol levels and may even have a positive effect on some tumours.
