Oyster Mushroom Crostini

Lately, I have been a little obsessed with OYSTER MUSHROOMS. Did you know that... 


"Oyster mushrooms contain ergothioneine, a unique antioxidant exclusively produced by fungi, 

according to a 2010 study led by Penn State food scientist Joy Dubost. The study found that 

oyster mushrooms have significant antioxidant properties that protect cells in the body. A 3 oz. 

serving of oyster mushrooms contains 13 mg of ergothioneine, and cooking the mushrooms 

does not reduce this level. Read more: LiveStrong.com


This antioxidant affect is just a small wonder to the nutritional value they serve in your body. 

They contain significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, folic 

acid, niacin, AND B-1 and B-2. 

My husband just love them because it lowers his cholesterol.

Basically they are the wonder mushroom, and it is no surprise the Chinese have been using 

them for thousands of years as medicine! 




So here is a quick appetizer recipe to eat, enjoy & improve your health! 

Ingredients: 

1/2 pound of oyster mushrooms (approximately 4 hand fulls)

2 green onions 

1 tablespoons of butter

1/2 tablespoons of toasted sesame oil 

2 tablespoons of red table wine

1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground pepper. 

1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder 

1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

2 Sourdough slices, or any crackers you can add oyster mushrooms. 

How to prepare

Begin by chopping the green onion. Next, chop the oyster mushrooms till they are bit size 

pieces. Turn the skillet on to medium heat and add the butter. 

Once melted, add mushrooms, green onions, wine, toasted sesame oil, pepper, garlic, and 

salt. Toss lightly for a few minutes. Should cook very quicly on medium heat. 

Toast your sourdough bread. Place oyster mushroom hot from the pan onto the toast, and 

Voila! Oyster Mushroom Crostini is served!

Enjoy with a small glass of red wine!
