Beech mushrooms have a delicious savory, nutty flavor and crunchy texture! Here’s more about this variety and a recipe for how to cook them.


  • 8 ounces beech mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha hot sauce (or other hot sauce)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sesame oil (standard, not toasted)
  • Kosher salt


  1. Slice off the bottom tough part of the mushroom stems. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, lime juice and Sriracha. 
  2. Heat the sesame oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the beech mushrooms and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add a few pinches of kosher salt while cooking.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and carefully pour in the bowl of sauce. Continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes until browned and glossy.
