Shiitake Mushrooms and Miso Bok Choy
2 Tbsp. toasted sesame oil
1 Tbsp. miso paste (we prefer white)
1 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger root, grated
1 lb. fresh Shiitake, stemmed and sliced
1 lb. bok choy
sesame seeds, cilantro or chopped scallion for garnish
cooked brown rice or soba noodles for serving
Heat a large Sauté 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. 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.
Oyster Sauce variation:
Instead of using a miso sauce, drizzle Sautéed Shiitake mushrooms with a high quality Oyster sauce until warmed through - do not overcook, a minute or two maximum! Plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds. So easy and so delicious!
