Bamboo mushrooms (also commonly called “veiled lady mushrooms”) are long, thin, off-white mushrooms with a rich, earthy flavor and a delicate, porous texture. They are most easily distinguished by their long, lacy “skirts” or “veils.”
Rinse mushrooms under cold running water to remove any possible debris. To rehydrate prior to use, place desired amount in a bowl and cover with boiling water. Soak until tender, usually 20 to 30 minutes. Drain and rinse, or rinse and add directly to recipes that will cook for at least 25 minutes.
Delicate and rich bamboo mushrooms are enhanced with ginger, garlic and our Lemongrass Powder for a quick, delicious filling for wontons. Use these in soups, dip them in sauce or fry them in a pan for potstickers.
