Yes.

As much as you want, sauteed.

There you go.

Why not? They're delicious and healthy.

IMO there's never too many mushrooms - sauteed, on pizza, in a roasted veggie sammich, with green beans, raw in a salad, as an ingredient in ravioli, on a burger, in place of a burger.....

1) Yes Yes Yes

2) several helpings

3)

  • sliced raw on salads
  • sauteed in a bit of olive oil with garlic
  • on pizzas
  • in soups and stews
  • grilled or skewered on grill
  • made into cream of mushroom soup
  • sliced, diced and added to fillings for wraps
  • etc

Yes:

  • Sautéed in 1 tsp butter, with a little splash of sesame oil near the end, as a side veg.
  • Breadcrumbed with garlic purée added, sprayed with oil, oven baked.
  • With chicken in a white sauce, under mashed potato.
  • Large flat one, stuffed with savoury rice and oven baked under foil.
  • Mushroom rissotto.
  • Sautéed with butter, and served on garlic bread slices.
  • White sauce and used to stuff vol au vents.

Yes, mushrooms are my favorite food!

Pickled: Quarter mushrooms and saute with garlic in a little olive oil until they start to release liquid, then add equal parts (red or white) wine vinegar and water, bring to a boil for a couple of minutes. Season with salt and garam masala, or a bay leaf + whole peppercorns + whole cloves. You can add a teaspoon of sugar if you prefer them sweet. Let cool, cover and refrigerate, pick out whole spices before eating.

Baked, with cherry tomatoes: Make a small cross cut into each tomatoes. Toss tomatoes and mushrooms with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, fresh thyme and basil. Bake in oven on a low temperature for about a half hour.

Sauteed: With soy sauce, lemon juice, diced chili peppers and sesame seeds. I usually add fresh green beans too, or add the mixture to steamed greens (like kale).

I LOVE mushrooms, I could eat a whole pack myself! Even raw, in salads or by themselves they're sooo good. Try sautéing them with some garlic in olive oil or butter and having on toast or warmed flat bread, it's to die for! 

YES! grilled, sauteed, sauteed with onions, raw and dipped in low-cal honey mustard dressing....

ooh, i'm drooling.

It's best not to eat mushrooms raw. It's especially important with common "wild" mushrooms, since many of them contain compounds that can make you ill unless cooked. But even button mushrooms contain a hydrazine derivative, which is a toxin and possibly carcinogenic (in lab animals anyway). Agaratine is degraded by heat, so cooking is recommended just to be safe.

Intermittenlty, for many years, I have been eating store-bought mushrooms such as white and portebella raw; I will probably continue to do so.

However,  tristessa makes a very valid point.  I am not disagreeing.

Here is an article that supports tristessa's point:

http://www.mykoweb.com/articles/EatingRawMush rooms.html

If one Google's, he or she can find quite a few articles about mushrooms in general and eating or not eating raw mushrooms, in particular.

My favorite food site (World's Healthiest Foods) suggests that the two best mushrooms to consume are crimini and shiitake.

You may be right but I'm going to go ahead and eat my raw baby bella's  - it may kill me but I'll die happy. I promise not to do anything else dangerous though like lick raw chicken.

Yes. Chantarelles. Well sauteed with butter or steak. Have to cook some of the water out of them.

Mmm, portobello mushrooms...

Chopped up and sauteed with other veggies....or grilled and made into a portobello mushroom burger.

I'm so hungry right now.

You guys are making me hungry!

I love mushrooms... stuffed mushrooms are amazing, and I also like them sliced i half and sauteed in a slightly sweet red wine (yum yum yum)

yes yes YES! sauteed with onions, red peppers, and garlic. Delicious :)

Yummm!  Mushrooms are awesome- healthy AND delicious.  Something that surprised me is that they're also relatively high in protein (as far as macronutrient ratio is concerned).

I like them raw, steamed, or sauteed in a little olive oil.  I also love cooking them and eating them on top of a baked sweet potato.  :)
