Mushrooms, Shiitake- Long-used in food and supplements, Shiitake mushrooms offer many vitamins and minerals, strengthen your immune system, and even help lower cholesterol. But most importantly, they're revered for their umami taste: characterized by a strong, earthy flavor and velvety, meaty texture when cooked.
Shiitake-lovers most often cut off the bottom half of the stem, and then use this versatile mushroom in endless ways: saute and add them to pasta dishes or stir-fries, use them to make a flavorful soup, or roast them for a crispy snack or side dish.
Our Organic Shiitake mushroom producer, Leep Foods, grows these mushrooms in sawdust from responsibly managed forests!
