I always love trying new things when I am cooking. One day when I was craving for some rice vermicelli I decided to add Auricularia mushrooms to them, and mixed all that with some delicious spaghetti sauce. The dish turned out pretty good. My mom loved it and perhaps you will too. Give it a try.

You can always substitute Auricularia mushrooms with other mushrooms of your choice if you find that you don't like the taste of these mushrooms. The choice is yours.

What are Auricularia Mushrooms?

Auricularia Mushrooms (or Auricularia auricula-judae) are edible mushrooms that can be found worldwide. They are brown in color and have a soft jelly-like texture. Sometimes they are referred to as jelly ears or Jew's ears, though other names have also been given to these mushrooms. They grow upon wood, especially on the elder tree.

Auricularia Mushrooms are popular and widely used in Chinese cuisine. The mushrooms are usually dried and then soaked in water before they are used in culinary dishes. You can use them in soups, salads, pasta, and other dishes.

Below is one of my recipes that uses Auricularia mushrooms... Give it a try. I hope you will like it.
