Hi Everyone! I’m Livlite’s Head Buyer/Chef-nerd-in-residence, Karima. We just started carrying one of my favourite ingredients, OYSTER MUSHROOMS, so here’s a quick and easy recipe that I make all the time.


These turn out super golden and gorgeous, with deep umami, almost meaty flavour, and just a hint of acidity for some contrast. It’s fun as a snack by itself, but they also keep well in the fridge, and I add them to noodles, curries, rice bowls, wraps, tacos, basically everything.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350F/175C.
  • Grate garlic finely in a large bowl. Add the miso, salt, vinegar, and olive oil, and combine with a spatula until thoroughly mixed.
  • Trim the bottom ends off the mushroom cluster (about 1cm) if they’re tough or dry.
  • Starting at the top and working down the stems, gently pull apart the mushrooms into pieces that are about 3cm/1” across at the top. Leave any smaller ones whole.
  • Stir all of them with the seasoning paste until well-coated.
  • Spread them out evenly on a parchment-lined pan, and roast for 20-30 mins, until deep golden brown and crispy. It’s okay if a few dark tips develop, but we don’t want burnt bits.
  • Let cool, and enjoy!
