Porcini Mushrooms: Gourmet Edibles
Porcini mushrooms are a famous, and delicious, addition in Italian cuisine. Due to their strong nutty flavor, this is an incredibly popular gourmet mushroom.
Like so many other good edible mushrooms, porcini are mycorrhizal. This means that the underground vegetative growth of the mushroom, called the mycelia, enters into a symbiotic relationship with the roots of plants.
Not only do they taste good but also they're good for you. This mushroom reportedly has a high protein content, which makes them a great meat substitute in vegetarian dishes.
