Homey Mushroom Balls
The idea of making these mushroom balls started from interest to vegan Fodmap diet. The diet where many of the main ingredients known to vegans are prohibited, as this diet limits the intake of poorly absorbable carbohydrates that cause many stomach problems. These include: lentils, beans, nuts and seeds but also many root vegetables, fruits and mushrooms.
These delicious mushroom balls are made from King Oyster, but quess you can replaced them with almost any mushroom if you don´t have food limitations.
This time the recipe is indicative, because we would like every reader to try and be enthusiastic about cooking for themselves and their relatives. Each of us has different taste and daily dietary needs, so it would be good to prepare food according to your own intuition.
We have noticed that the interest in cooking goes down when you start measuring the incredients for recipes, it also disappears when you follow the recipes of someone else too precisely. The food also tastes quite different if you are doing a recipe and measure all the incredients or if you are doing it just for fun and listening your instincts in the moment.
Cooking can be difficult if you have not done it before, or you have done it rarely. Everything in life requires a little practice and after a few times, you start learning the flavors and fragrances of the different ingredients and gradually combining them into your own taste palettes.
When you know what is in your food and the ingredients are fresh and authentic and not just preservatives, flavor enhancers, artificial colors and flavors that cheat your instincts, your body begins to tell you what you really need to get the daily nutrients.
