    Had a garlicky mushroom dish at a Turkish restaurant the other night - flavour gets an 'A' but the texture? :***:

    If you don't like the texture you could blitz them down before adding to most dishes so you wouldn't notice them. In terms of flavour frying them with thyme smells and tastes delicious but won't help you with any texture issues. Might enhance your pate though

    Cheers @SueB743 - I did add dried thyme to the pate but I imagine fresh stuff would be a lot nicer :)

    I've been trying to convince myself to like mushrooms for quite some time. The two that I've been successful with are shitake and enoki. When I make miso soup I include Shitake (soaking the dried ones in warm water for 30 minutes). I put enoki mushrooms in the noodle bowl with mung bean sprouts and pour hot soup on them. They actually taste good!

    Maybe chanterelles would be OK? I am not really fond of mushrooms, but these taste quite different. And they don't have this weird greasy texture. For me also works soy sauce - it makes mushrooms taste better. Without it, there are often just bland to me.
