Enoki Mushrooms

Sometimes I wonder how some can indulge in a tasting menu at 10pm.  Unlike my college years, when my friends and I partied till the wee hours and did not go to bed until the sun woke up (hellloooo first ray of light), my present sleep pattern is more attuned to nature’s schedule.  While my peers might go out for a drink or dinner after work, I much prefer to have lunch or brunch with them instead because I cannot sleep with a full stomach of food. 

Another ‘lite’ dish I favor is mushrooms.  I especially like enoki because of its snow white appearance and mild taste.  It is also very versatile – use it in soup, stir-fry or even grilling! Nutritionally, it has high antioxidants, provides good protein, and can regulate our immune system. However, it is not the white buttom mushrooms, so do not eat enoki raw.
