Straw Mushrooms

Straw mushrooms are used in many Thai dishes. They can be found in recipes for soups, salads or fried dishes. The mushrooms are grown on straw, hence their name. The taste is neutral and unobtrusive, not to be compared with the intense mushroom flavor of some European species. They can be replaced by standard European 'shrooms in many dishes.
