The Problem of Mushrooms
I made soup out of my jack-o-lantern. Pumpkin, lentils, potato, lemongrass, nutmeg, cumin (just a little), mushrooms, rice, milk, and onion – very tasty and filling! But also very ugly.
I have this problem whereby cooking with mushrooms (admittedly not the freshest ones available, since I buy from the “reduced for quick sale” cart) results in a sludgy dark gray color. The taste is fine but I want my food to be pretty, too – any hints?
