Spaghetti Made From Mushrooms?

Mushroom Pasta???? No, not really. But the stringiness reminds me of spaghetti. (No, I am not replacing pasta with mushrooms. There is room in my heart—and my belly—for both of these foods, thank you.)

Asian Market, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways. On my most-recent trip, I got a big package of Enoki mushrooms for only $1.50!  I adore Enoki shrooms, but they’re so hard to find, and then when you do find ‘em, they can be pretty pricey.  Thank goodness for the Asian market.

Enoki mushrooms, meet Stir fry Salad.

Have you ever been to an ethnic market?

I could spend all day in an Asian market: the low prices, the exotic foods, the memory-inducing items (I grew up in Japan and China)… it all makes for quite the fun experience. I’ve just discovered that Indian markets are pretty cool too.  If you’ve been to one, what’s your favorite ethnic-market purchase?  Here’s a hint about mine: It starts with a K.

    anonymous,
    Wow, that’s quite a few assumptions, many of which aren’t even true (Never cooks with oil? Limits carbs per meal?). So I’m not going to bother responding further than this. I know I’m healthy and happy, my friends and family know I’m healthy and happy, and that’s all that matters. Sorry if my lifestyle offends you.

    I tried a new Asian market today and Kabocha were 69 cents/lb. I’ll be posting my Thai Kabocha Soup recipe soon. Love it!

    All those warning signs from anonymous sound healthy to me. Whatevs!

    My favourite buys in the Indian market by my mums are hands-down the bulk bags of beans and pulses, the mustard oil (pungent!!) and the halva (biiiiiiiiig sweet tooth!). Oh, and the dirt-cheap mangos. Maaaan, I miss living in Manchester for them if nothing else!

    I do love me some stirfried mushrooms, but I’ve yet to try out enoki. I’ve seen them at my local Asian grocery store, so I should pick them up one time. They totally do resemble pasta, don’t they? 🙂
