Our second most popular mushroom, Shiitake, is one of the most versatile mushrooms in the kitchen. Regardless of urban legends, this mushroom is not indigenous to the United States and can only be picked in a mushroom farmer's growing room. They contain protein, carbohydrates, fiber, linoleic acid, Vitamins B2, C, D and minerals. The marvelous flavor can stand up to any spicy dish, even replacing meat in spaghetti sauce. Saute Shiitake in butter or oil and pair with meat, pasta or rice. Also delicious as a side dish using the Sauteed Shiitake Mushroom recipe featured inside the headcard. 1 ounce organic packages.
