Mushrooms

Mushrooms - hed - are a common ingredient in quite a number of Thai dishes, and quite a few different varieties of the fungus are used. Perhaps the most commonly used are cloud ear mushrooms, which appear in a number of stir-fries. Also called wood ears or tree ears, the Thai name for them is hed hoo noo, which means "mouse ear mushroom". The Thai name is a good description of these thin wrinkly brown fungi. Like all mushrooms, cloud ears have an earthy taste, although it is not very strong in this variety.
