4 Ways to Cook Trumpet Mushrooms

Trumpet mushrooms can be eaten either raw or cooked. Cooking enhances their umami flavors, and, because trumpet mushrooms are more dense than other mushroom varieties, they hold up well to slow cooking and high heat.

  1. Seared: Half mushrooms lengthwise, then using a crosshatch pattern, make small incisions into the exposed flesh. Sear the cut sides down in oil or unsalted butter over medium high heat until golden brown and crisp, then flip and allow a little color to develop on the backside. Season to taste, and pair with something bright and herby, like chimichurri.
  2. Grilled. You might catch trumpet mushrooms on the menu of most yakitori joints, and with good reason: when grilled, halved trumpets take on all the smoky flavor of the Japanese charcoals, melt into a soft texture while still retaining all their moisture. Toss with a drizzle of oil before you grill, and finish with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of salt and togarashi.
  3. Pulled. Pulled, shredded trumpet mushrooms make great sandwich fodder. Sear or grill mushrooms, then when cool enough to handle, using your hands or two forks, pull the mushrooms apart into strings. Toss with lemon, minced garlic, or a teaspoon of sambal oelek and season to taste; rewarm in the pan if you like, then layer with pickled carrots, red onion, and herbs between two slices of sourdough toast.
  4. Raw. Raw trumpet mushrooms are mild enough that they make a subtle textural addition to most salads, and they also soak up dressing like nobody’s business.

The 1 Tip to Remember When Cooking Trumpet Mushrooms

Chef's Tips: Great on the grill! Just split in half and toss with olive oil. Cut the stem into scallops to emphasize the meatiness. Keeps its shape and texture when sliced or diced.

Scoring the cut side of trumpet mushrooms allows them to cook much faster and evenly, as well as soak up all the flavor from the cooking oil or butter. Smaller mushrooms will still sear just fine if you don’t, but be sure to give the larger ones a little boost.
