I really like the taste of them uncooked, but my girlfriend thinks it is both weird and unsafe. Is she right? Should I be worried for my health.

I love any raw vegetable, swede, carrots, peas (frozen), sweencorn (tinned or frozen), cabbage, cauliflower, potatoes. They are all great (also many others not on the list)

Frozen chips and potatoe wedges are also good.

Oh and on topic, i also love raw mushrooms, can sometimes taste better raw than cooked.

well, THEY (i.e. the people in the know) say that mushrooms will absorb water and make them all slimy and squooshy so you should only brush any dirt off with kitchen paper. It works for me.

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know a good way to cook/saute mushrooms while retaining their flavour? They tend to soak up the flavour of whatever you saute them in e.g. olive oil.

Yeah, they taste good when you saute them in butter (classic way and they keep their own flavour). You could also use an unflavoured oil like rape seed or just plain cooking oil- Flora etc.

Olive oil is a very strong flavoured oil (lovely) and is best for dressing, sauces and frying things like aubergines that suck it up and go lvoely and creamy. I however use olive oil a lot because it tastes good and it's good for you!

Hope that helps!

only if they are either magic mushrooms or you have gone out and picked them yourself. if they are shop bought however feel free to eat as many as you want but it doesnt taste nice at all
oh the best way to cook them is in butter with some garlic mmmm but only the big ones not the small ones. you can also cook them in risotto

Thanks, yeah I've used butter a lot, it tastes great but is not the healthiest option! Would you by any chance know any recipes involving mushrooms? I can't seem to find anything quick to make using them..
