Have any of ya’ll tried king oyster mushrooms, or sometimes just called king mushrooms, before? They can be hard to find but becoming more and more available. I hadn’t tried them yet, partly because of how hard it was to find, and then some grocery stores that I have seen them have them for a pretty high price. But – I went to an Asian market near me to get some spring roll fixings and I saw they had king mushrooms there for cheap! So if you have an Asian market near you, and you haven’t been able to find king mushrooms – check to see if they have it.
Sugar addiction is no joke. I can’t say I was ever severely addicted to sugar (at least added fructose sugar) because of allergies to corn. So no corn syrups when I was young. We always just had water or tea in our fridge to drink. Maybe some soda if we had people over. But my husband… oh boy!
The first time I had pineapple salsa was on a black bean patty. The recipe was from Chloe Coscarelli’s “Chloe’s Kitchen” cookbook. It was my first vegan cookbook and where I started to learn the ‘tricks’ of vegan cooking 5 years ago. I reference it a lot! The spine on the book is actually falling apart, that’s how much I used it!
