These meaty mushrooms are relatively mild in taste and easy to cook with, making an excellent mushroom option for stir fry. Lobster mushrooms are also great sliced on pizza, ground into pasta, soups, and sauteed whole with garlic cloves in olive oil (sprinkled with a nice finishing salt).
To Reconstitute: Quick method Soak in 1 cup of warm water per ounce of dried mushrooms for 20 minutes. Slow method Soak in 1 cup of cool water per ounce of dried mushrooms, refrigerate overnight. When mushrooms are fully reconstituted, strain mushrooms and retain the broth for your recipe. Rinse well and pat dry prior to use.
