Shiitake 'Shrooms that is! A wonderful healing anti-inflammatory food that is tasty and easy to prepare. In fact they can be added to SO many recipes in order to get the daily quota.
We were joined by Wind River founder, Shannon Carney and Wind River Alumni Allison Peeler Schwartz for an extra special treat for all! We had a great evening exploring Asia's most popular mushroom. Not only did we explore the history of Shiitake and how they are harvested, we also explored the health benefits and how to prepare them.
Our healthy tasting menu included: Shiitake Baba Ganoush, Shittake bruschetta, Shittake & olive tapenade and Shiitake pesto. To conclude our 'Shoom Love In, everyone was sent home with a big bag of freshly harvested Asian yard long beans and a recipe for Shiitake green beans to try. We were feeling the 'Shroom love for sure!!!
