(Oyster Mushrooms) Oyster mushrooms (pleurotus ostreatus) are a common variety of edible mushroom; however, even though they are common, we rarely see them in supermarkets. Their name came from the fact that they look very similar to oyster shells. In the wild, oyster mushrooms grow on dead trees. They are cultivated commercially and are easy to grow. Oyster mushrooms can be used in many different recipes. We mostly use oyster mushrooms in our oriental style recipes. See the nutritional information below for raw oyster mushrooms.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
