King oyster mushrooms are indeed the kings of forest! Their nutty and rich flavor, large size, nice texture with a mild chew as well as their high shelf-life make them one of the most sought after and flavorful gourmet mushrooms.
King oyster mushrooms are one of the more healthy and fun meat replacement choices for vegetarians and vegans because they are very versatile when it comes to cooking. Also, king oyster mushrooms are a very good source of some micronutrient (folate, iron, vitamin B3 and B5 to name a few) that are hard to find in non-meat sources.
What makes them even a healthier food choice is their low calorie, low carbohydrate, no fat and relatively high protein content.
