RECIPE: Spaghetti Mushroom Calamari

Updated: Jun 19, 2022

King oyster mushrooms make a fantastic and healthy plant based substitute for calamari. Instead of preparing your own mushroom calamari from scratch, Nature's Charm have created a ready to use marinated calamari - in a can! This dish is inspired by Gennaro Contaldo's cucina povera calamari and potato recipe from Instagram, but we're using spaghetti instead. Adding the nori sheet gives this an extra seafood flavour kick.
