King Oyster Mushrooms

King Oyster Mushrooms (Latin: Pleurotus eryngii) are also known as king trumpet mushroom, French horn mushroom, king oyster mushroom, king brown mushroom, boletus of the steppes, trumpet royale and aliʻi oyster mushroom.

They are an edible mushroom native to Mediterranean regions of Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, but also grown in many parts of Asia.  

It has little flavor or aroma when raw but when cooked it develops typical mushroom umami flavors. They are robust and hold their texture when cooked making them a good meat substitute in vegan cooking.
