Although Swiss Brown mushrooms are small, they are one of the heartiest mushroom varieties with the most robust umami flavour. With their darker colour and earthiness, Swiss Browns bring a delicious rustic quality to dishes. These brown mushrooms hold a little less water than their white cousins, which is why they have a firmer texture and retain their shape during the cooking process. Don't think Swiss Browns are only for winter dishes, these little flavour dynamos are great in a stir-fry's, pasta, risotto's and are amazing skewered on the BBQ too.
Did you know? A swiss brown mushroom is the same as a portobello. When a swiss brown mushroom is left on the growing bed for an extra few days, it grows into a big portobello mushroom!
How to prepare:
- Do not peel!
- Wipe with a damp cloth if needed.
- Slice and saute, add to pasta or rissoto
- Perfect in stews and slow cooker recipes
