View Full Version : Shitake Mushrooms

Does anyone know if it is totally safe/healthy to eat shitake mushrooms RAW?
I know for some mushrooms you're not supposed to eat them raw only cooked, so I'm wondering if shitakes are ok RAW.
The sushi recipe in the book Raw Food Real World uses raw marinated shitakes. As they serve them at their restaurant I assume that they are safe to eat raw. They are also extremely yummy!

LOL thanks Gelis. Well if you haven't died yet, then that's enough for me!
thanks also kiku.
I like the idea of buying shitakes as they're grown on oak logs, as opposed to commercial mushrooms that are grown on manure from conventional meat operations.
