Shiitake Mushrooms!





I really enjoy this blog a lot, Mushrooming Together. This couple, and their company, are out of Wisconsin. Their recipes are simple, straightforward, tested, and tasty!

Shiitake Mushrooms and Miso Bok Choy

2T toasted sesame oil
1 T miso paste (I prefer white)
1T Rice vinegar
1 T grated fresh ginger root
1 lb fresh Shiitake, stemmed and sliced
1lb Bok choy
sesame seeds, cilantro or chopped scallion for garnish
cooked brown rice or soba noodles, for serving
Heat a large saute pan and add oil. When warm, add mushrooms and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Cook for a few minutes until Shiitake soften or brown slightly, depending on your preference. Then add miso paste, vinegar, ginger. Toss and coat the mushrooms and then add the bok choy. Cover until the mix is bright green and soft, about 3 minutes. Spoon over rice or noodles and add garnish. Serve and be delighted.

Shiitake Mushrooms and Oyster Sauced Bok Choy

Bok Choy
High quality Oyster Sauce
Toasted sesame oil
Heat a bit of oil in a wok. Add sliced mushrooms and salt lightly. Saute a few minutes until soft or browned at edges. Add sliced bok choy, stems and leaves both. Saute a few minutes and drizzle with Oyster sauce until warmed through – do not overcook, a minute or two maximum! Plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds. So easy and so delicious!
