Baby king oyster mushrooms (mini king oysters) are one of the tastiest mushroom species. They are often used as a meat substitute and resemble the taste of a scallop when cooked with butter and wine, thus they are amongst the favorite vegan choices. They pair well with teriyaki sauce and are deliciously fried, grilled, and baked. Their stems are tasty and delicate, so you can use the full mushroom for cooking. They are perfect for grill, stir-fry, tempura, BBQ, and sauces
