Hello Pamela,

It was my first time to harvest wild mushrooms. One of the most treasured experiences during my vacation. Though I agree with you, I am no expert as well when it comes to deciding which one is edible and non-edible.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on July 29, 2018:

I have never picked wild muchrooms, and would be afraid of picking the wrong ones. I do think your recipe sounds excellent.

Hello Mary,

Me too, I love these mushrooms as well. I can't deny how much I enjoyed this simple dish. The umami taste of these mushrooms, the sweetness and saltiness of oyster sauce and of course the crunchiness of garlic blended so well.

Hi Rinita,

Yes, you can use any kind of mushroom. The most common mushrooms available in the market are shiitake and button so you can try these two.

Rinita Sen on July 29, 2018:

How incredibly simple! Does this work with regular button mushrooms?
