Shi­itake

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Home & Food How To -

Meaty mush­rooms with a rich, earthy flavour when cooked. Also known as Chi­nese black mush­rooms or ori­en­tal black mush­rooms. PREP Cut off and dis­card the tough stems. Use the caps whole or slice thinly for stir-fries. You can also use the stems to flavour stock. COOK The meaty caps are best used in stir-fries. Use dried shi­itake in soup as they have a more in­tense umami flavour than fresh ones.

Soak the dried mush­rooms in hot wa­ter for 15min be­fore cook­ing; add the liq­uid to your stir-fry or soup to flavour it.
