Mushroom - Flat
Get the Flash Player to see this player.
These large flat mushrooms are popular for stuffing and baking in the oven. They can grow to be the size of an adult's palm. Flat mushrooms are larger in size than most mushrooms, with flatter tops. They range in size from 4-6 cm, perhaps bigger. They have completely broken veils and dark brown gills.

The larger the mushroom, the more flavour it will develop. The flat mushroom has a delicious meaty texture.

Store in a paper bag in the crisper section of the refrigerator for up to five days. Do not store in plastic or the mushrooms may become slimy.
Category: Fungus
In Season: all year
To Buy:
Look for firm, white, smooth-skinned mushrooms. Avoid any that are wrinkled, dry, discoloured or slimy. Avoid pre-packed - better to pack and inspect them yourself. Pack in the special paper mushroom bags provided.
To Store:
Store in a paper bag in the crisper section of the refrigerator for up to five days. Do not store in plastic or the mushrooms may become slimy.
Tips & Tricks:
Buy a special mushroom brush to brush any dirt off the mushroom. Washing them makes them slimy and because most of the goodness lies just under the skin, peeling them robs them of all their nutritional goodness.
Cooking Tips:
Large, flat mushrooms are delicious baked on their own with a brush of olive oil and sprinkle of sea salt or stuffed with any number of delicious fillings. Bake on a baking sheet for 15 - 30 minutes depending on the size. Great pan fried and served on its own or as an accompaniment to a meal.
