So, what is nameco?

Nameco mushrooms, also known as Pholiota nameko, are a type of small, amber-colored mushroom that is popular in Japanese cuisine. With a slightly nutty and earthy flavor, these mushrooms are often used in soups, stews, and sauces for their unique taste and texture. Namecos are also known for their slimy coating, which adds a silky texture to dishes. They are low in calories and high in protein, making them a nutritious addition to any meal. These versatile mushrooms can be found fresh or dried in specialty grocery stores and are a must-try for anyone looking to explore new flavors in their cooking.
