So, what is nameko?

Nameko is a type of edible mushroom commonly used in Japanese cuisine. With its small, amber-colored caps and long stems, nameko mushrooms have a slightly gelatinous texture and a nutty, earthy flavor. These versatile mushrooms are often used in soups, stews, and sauces to add depth and umami flavor. Nameko mushrooms are also a good source of protein, fiber, and essential vitamins and minerals. Due to their unique texture and flavor, nameko mushrooms have become increasingly popular in global cuisine and are now widely available in specialty grocery stores and online markets.
