This is a very interesting mushroom, has a thick and very meaty stem and the cap is kind of small compared as a whole. After cooking the texture of this mushroom is different from the others species of mushroom.


1 pack King Trumpet Mushroom
3 cloves garlic crushed
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/3 bunch fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon butter
½ tablespoon soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste


Wash the mushroom and remove the bottom part, where the mushrooms attached to the soil (brown and flaky). Slice it approximately ½ inch and boil in water for 2~3 minutes. Drain it and reserve.

In a pan sautee the garlic in butter until brown, add the sliced onion, let it cook for 1 minute, add the mushrooms, soy sauce, salt and pepper to your taste. Stir gently, until well distributed.

Finally, add the chopped cilantro and serve hot.

Did you know that king trumpet mushroom is also called French horn mushroom or king oyster mushroom? Is the largest one in the oyster mushroom genus.

Thank you for stopping by Simple Recipes and have a great week!

  5. I often see these and pass right by them in the supermarket – I may need to try them out!

  6. Wow, my mother-in-law brought me those mushrooms from 99 ranch market a few weeks ago and I didn’t know what to do with them! Now I know. Thank you!

  7. So I always thought I didn’t like mushroom….but I had a couple in a stir fry the other day…thinking I might need to give them another shot! Great dish

  8. I love this mushroom – and your plate sounds delicious with the onions, butter and soy.

  9. Soy sauce makes magic with mushrooms. It’s that double dose of umami going on that makes a good thing even better. Your dish looks scrumptious!

  10. These are one of my favorite mushrooms because they’re so meaty and always super juicy.

  11. Wow, what gorgeous mushrooms.

  12. This looks like an excellent recipe. I enjoy trumpet mushrooms for their meaty almost oyster-like texture.

  13. Hahaha! I just had this for lunch with scrambled eggs! love it! It has quite a meaty texture!

  14. Juliana, thanks for passing from my blog, so nice to meet you. I love mushrooms but these are new to me as we don’t get them in Greece. Would like to try them one day.

  15. Can’t say I have ever seen trumpet mushrooms, but you have certainly pricked my interest to go and find them!!!

  16. Those are some BIG mushrooms- they look fantastic though, I love how you used them in the dish!

  17. I love mushrooms! You have such a cute web site–I love it!

  18. Yum, yum, yum! It’s the simplest dishes like this that really let the ingredients shine, and are often the best! Way to highlight this delicate mushroom. 🙂

  19. one of my favorites and you make it look so good – I have never boiled them though so I think I will give this a try next time.

  20. These are some of the most delicious mushrooms I’ve seen! Awesome flavor.

  21. Note to self – try these mushrooms immediately. Thanks for the recipe! Looks fantastic.

  22. These look wonderful. I wonder what’s the advantage of boiling them instead of just sauteeing them? I’ve never seen that done before!

  23. These look wonderful. I wonder what’s the advantage of boiling them instead of just sauteeing them? I’ve never seen that done before–what a great idea!

  24. Yummy! Sauteed mushrooms are always so scrumptious!



  25. I’ve never had this kind of mushroom, but so far I’ve loved every kind of mushroom I’ve had, so I know I would love this! Great recipe, I love how the flavor of the mushrooms is really highlighted!

  26. I adore mushrooms. All kinds. I made a puff pastry roll with them once- done somewhat like yours, but with some added cream and sherry as I recall. I have long since lost the recipe which is annoying because everyone really loved it.
    We used to forage for morels and my mother would just coat them lightly with flour and fry them in butter.
    The King Trumpet mushrooms look like they would be meatier than most. Is that what you meant by they have a different texture?

  27. I’ve never eaten this variety of mushroom before. Must look for it the next time I travel.

  28. this looks like a really great side dish to meat..

  29. I have never eaten this kind of mushroom, but the dish looks & sounds great! 🙂

  30. I bet that cilantro works wonders in this dish–and I’d never thought of adding it!

  31. Kate: The reason that I boil the mushrooms is that somehow I find that most of the mushrooms have an odor, and by boiling them I am able to decrease the odor.

    Barbara: Yes, these mushrooms are very meaty, not like most of the mushrooms which are kind of spongy.

  32. great post! this looks wonderful!

  33. It is one of those mushrooms which you can use the stems and not just the caps 🙂
    I usually stir fry them with vegetables, in fact, just recently.

  34. It looks so regal!!!

  35. Oh how delicious do these mushrooms sound. Cilantro and soy, sounds delicious paired this way!

  36. I’ve seen this kind of mushroom before, but I’ve never cooked with them. This salad looks really good.

  37. Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog.
    I love mushrooms and sauted ones are best! I just saute them in butter and soy sauce and a sprinkle of garlic powder. I checked your profile and was excited to know you’re in science too. I do molecular work at the university and have a food blog on the side like you. My relatives live in Minas Gerais.

  38. P.S. I’ve added your blog to my blog list.

  42. Those are some fine mushrooms. I rarely see them in our supermarket in the mountains but I’ll keep an eye out for them here in Florida. We love mushrooms.

  43. Hooray for mushrooms. I love them anytime, and I usually get these in a mixed pack with shimeji and shitake . Yes, like Kate I’d never seen them boiled before, but I suppose there is a bit of a smell – never eally paid it any attention 🙂 Like the addition of cilantro to the dish.

  44. I am a mushroom fan and these are really appealing. I have to see if I can get these mushrooms but this recipe is worth making with another mushroom, I hope.
