So, what is shiitake?

Shiitake is a type of mushroom that originated in East Asia and has been cultivated for centuries. Its meaty texture and earthy flavor make it a popular ingredient in various cuisines around the world. Shiitake mushrooms are low in calories and high in protein, fiber, and essential nutrients such as B vitamins and minerals. They also contain compounds that are believed to have immune-boosting and anti-inflammatory properties. Shiitake mushrooms can be cooked in a variety of ways, including sautéed, grilled, stir-fried, or added to soups and stews. They are often used as a substitute for meat in vegetarian and vegan dishes, making them a versatile ingredient for any kitchen.
