Cremini Mushrooms

Cremini Mushroom (Agaricus bisporus)
This mushroom is also widely known as crimini or simply brown mushrooms. Some years ago, the brown color of these wonderful mushrooms was bred out of the variety, resulting in the very common white button mushrooms. It was only after cooks sought out brown mushrooms with more flavor that cremini became popular again.

Cremini mushrooms have a flavor similar to the white mushrooms, except deeper, a bit bolder and more mushroomy. It's an earthy yet sophisticated flavor that greatly enhances the flavors of other foods. Cremini can be sliced or chopped and sauteed, then used in stuffing and soups. They are also perfect for stuffed mushroom caps.
