I was taught never to wash mushrooms with water because mushies are like a sponge and they will soak up the water and dilute the mushroom flavor. Instead of washing them, I take a paper towel and wipe off the dirt. Easy as that. Some people aren’t with me on this and like to wash them with water. Either way is fine, I just like my way best. Okay - you can do this - now go nourish your bod!
