Cremini Mushrooms

This variety of mushrooms and white mushrooms are of the same type. However, cremini mushrooms are more mature with a much stronger flavor, firmer texture and brown color. They are also known by another name – baby Bella mushrooms.

A Few More Cooking Tips

Cleaning the mushrooms

You can use a dish towel or a damp paper towel to clean the mushroom. There should be no dirt on the mushrooms. Don’t use water to clean them. Mushrooms do not brown well after absorbing water.

When you have to clean with water

Don’t soak them. Just rinse with cold water and then pat dry with paper towels.

Don’t overcrowd the pan while cooking mushrooms

Use a pan having a good amount of surface area allowing you to spread mushrooms in a single layer. This keeps the mushrooms in contact with the pan allowing them to brown naturally.

Other variations of the recipe

You can use baby portabellas or button mushrooms as well. Adding cooked chicken will provide you with an even heartier meal.
