The Shiitake mushroom is firm and slightly meaty, widely used throughout South East Asia in broths and steamed dishes. Shiitake are higher in umami than any other mushroom. Fresh shiitake are quite mild when bought fresh but drying them intensifies the umami, giving an even greater depth of flavour and aroma.

Rehydrate the shiitake mushrooms by soaking them into hot water or simmer for 5-10 minutes. The soaking water can then be used as a rich vegetarian stock for sushi rice, risottos or broths. Add shiitake mushrooms to miso soup, use them in bibimbap or sushi. The mushrooms can also be sautéed and added to pasta sauces to bring umami meatiness. It is also perfect to be served garnishing to fish and chicken dishes.
