Dehydrated Mushroom Powder Seasoning

Add a rich burst of umami flavour to savoury dishes with dehydrated mushroom powder seasoning. It’s as easy as slice, dry, grind and you’ll have a little jar of flavour that packs a punch.

Add it to stews, soups, tacos, bolognese, hot pots, gravies, sauces, sprinkle over avocado or tofu, toss with vegetables, salad or rice – the list is endless. Never let that random mushroom or two at the bottom of the crisper go to waste and make your own mushroom powder seasoning.

Dehydrated Mushroom Powder Seasoning

I’ve tested this powder with a variety of mushrooms with success. Next time you’re buying mushrooms, it’s worth buying a few extra to make a batch of mushroom powder. Once prepared, keep the powder in an airtight container and use within 3 months.

I keep the base mushroom powder in a separate container and add additional spices to amp up the flavour to suit the recipe of the day. Onion and garlic powder works well, as does white and black pepper, salt, chilli and paprika.

Make the most of the dehydrator or oven running and try dehydrating fresh oregano to add to your pantry.

Equipment

  • Dehydrator or Oven
  • Small blender or food processor

Ingredients
  

  • Mushrooms

Instructions
 

  • Clean the mushrooms by gently brushing or wiping with a clean kitchen towel. Do not wash the mushrooms with water.
  • Slice the mushrooms to around 1cm thickness.
  • Place mushrooms on lined dehydrator tray and dehydrate for around 54°C for 4 – 8 hours. The mushrooms will still be slightly bendy, not crispy, when finished. Alternatively dehydrate in an oven on a cooling rack at the same temperature. If your oven does not go below 60°C, prop the oven door open with a spoon or spatula.
  • Add the dehydrated mushrooms to the food processor and grind to a fine powder.
  • Pop mushroom powder in a jar or airtight container, store in the pantry and use within 3 months.
