King Trumpet (also King Oyster) mushrooms are beautiful, gentle giants, not unlike a Newfoundland. They are tall and wide and boast a large white stem with a small brown-grey cap. Similar to tofu, they absorb all flavors they encounter and can assimilate into nearly any dish. Their flavor profile is similar to that of Portobello/Cremini mushrooms, but their colossal size allows for many more options. King Trumpet mushrooms have a rather firm texture, but once cooked they are excellently chewy and incredible to bite into.
HEALTH BENEFITS: King Oyster mushrooms have antioxidants that help to keep disease away. The antioxidant in this mushroom comes in the form of an amino acid known as ergothioneine, which cleanses sensitive areas of the body such as the eyes, kidneys, and liver. King Oysters also carry statins, which are disease-fighting compounds. The particular compound found in the King Oyster mushroom is called Lovastatin, which helps to clear cholesterol from the circulatory system.
