Hey, everyone. Welcome to Back to the Roots, an urban mushroom farm in Oakland, California. My name is Jared Abbott but tonight in this kitchen you can call me chef Jared. Now I'm really excited to show you a simple easy dish just how to make mushrooms with garlic. And the best part is that I'm going to use fresh oyster mushrooms that I've grown myself right from this little brown box. It only takes 10 days, super easy. I'm going to harvest them my self and then cook whatever I want. My two main ingredients are garlic and oyster mushrooms. And I'm going to start with the garlic. I'm going to use two cloves. Now the easiest way to get garlic skin off is to just give it a quick whack. The skin comes off really easy then you don't have to fuss around with it. Then I take all the skin. Toss that to the side. I'm going to start chopping my garlic up. It doesn't have to be too fine. Just a nice run through. Put that off to the side for now. Now to prepare the mushroom I don't have to do much because I've grown them indoors so I know there isn't any dirt on them. I'm just going to cut the ends off cause we do grow them on recycled coffee grounds. So there's a little bit of coffee on the end. Just cut the ends off. And then I'll run the knife through them real quick one time. And be ready to start sauteing. Now we do kind of longer pieces here on this one just for some fun. You can cut up your mushrooms anyway you like. Since this is more of a mushroom with straight garlic the mushrooms are kind of the main part of the meal. So I want bigger pieces. Just put them in a bowl real quick. And then we are ready to start sauteing. So I've got my pan on a medium-high heat. Going to add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. I'm going to add my two cloves of garlic, a nice sizzle. Just let that get a little bit golden brown before I add the mushrooms. I turn the heat down a little bit. And add my fresh oyster mushrooms to it. Now once you have the mushrooms you just want to cook them until they're golden brown on all sides. And the finishing touch is a little bit of sea salt. And black pepper. And I'll stir that up once more and I'll be ready to eat it. Smells good. Now I've got my beautiful looking oyster mushrooms here and it's time for the taster. Those are delicious. Just a perfect amount of salt and my favorite part about these fresh oyster mushrooms just that meaty texture. And when you grow them yourself you really notice a difference in how meaty and firm they really are. So I hope you have fun growing your own oyster mushrooms and trying out a garlic mushroom recipe. Once again, my name is Jared and thanks a lot.
