Last night I enjoyed a grouper dish layered with a hedgehog mushroom and spinach broth. The mushrooms had an intriguing flavor I was not familiar with, so I did a bit of research to find out more on these unique fungi. Hedgehog mushrooms are wild, creamy yellow mushrooms with firm flesh and a succulent, tangy flavor. They are also commonly referred to as a wood hedgehog mushroom.Recognizable by teethlike-spines that protrude from the cap, these mushrooms are best enjoyed cooked slowly. Recipe ideas include soups, pastas, and sauces.
