Which Grocery Store Aisle Are Dried Mushrooms In?
There are several different spots grocery stores keep dried mushrooms in, the first of which is often the produce area. Look in displays with garlic and shallots or around the fresh mushrooms.
If they're not in the produce section, check the canned vegetable and condiment aisles next. They may be on the shelves or in separate displays.
Grocery stores sometimes place dried mushrooms in displays near ingredients commonly cooked with them. This means that you may find them in the pasta and grain aisles.
Finally, check the bulk aisle. But if you're not finding them, use our store guide below...

Great Ways to Use Dried Mushrooms
Serve Them with Pasta
Porcini mushrooms are scrumptious with pasta. When you rehydrate them, you'll want to reserve the soak water, which retains the flavor of the mushrooms. Then you can add a little into the pasta dish you're making and save some to use as a veggie stock.
Turn Them into Vegan Carnitas
Mushrooms make fabulous mock meats, fresh or dried. But when you have the dried kind, you'll get a naturally chewy texture. Just be sure to rehydrate the mushrooms first.
The concentrated flavor released from dried mushrooms while they're soaking makes for an excellent soup. Use a recipe like this one as a base for vegan miso, ramen or any kind of vegetable soup.
