LEARN: Mushrooms are trendy right now for some good reasons. They are delicious and sustainable! Did you know mushrooms have a small carbon footprint due to their low water needs and ability to grow in recycled materials? They’re also full of selenium and vitamin D, which are great for our immune systems. You’ll learn all about these fantastic fungi & how to use them in the kitchen!
THE RECIPE: You’ll learn how to prepare a flavorful and umami (savory) packed ramen, influenced by Japanese techniques and flavors. We’ll start with creating a dashi broth using a mix of New Mexico-grown dried mushrooms and kombu seaweed. Then we’ll whisk in miso paste, which adds a deep, salty flavor and creamy texture. The dish will get topped with a “jammy” egg, noodles, green onions, toasted sesame oil, and togorashi powder.
MEET THE FARMER: You’ll meet the expert mushroom farmer and fun-guy himself, Estevan Hernandez. With over 11 years of curiosity, research and experience cultivating fungi, Stavi prides himself in offering the healthiest and happiest mushrooms to his home state of New Mexico! Mycology is truly his passion, as he personally ensures the vitality of each mycelium block at his urban farm, NM Fungi. At the mushroom farm they grow several varieties of beautiful and tasty mushrooms!
