Mushrooms, Shiitake, Dry

(Mushrooms, Shiitake, Dry)   When reconstituted in water, shiitake mushrooms are medium to strong tasting mushrooms with a distinctive taste and a chewy texture.  We purchase these dry shiitake mushrooms from the co-op in one pound packages (D'Allasandro) because of their convenience and storability.  Since they reconstitute very quickly, we enjoy them in quickie soups, stir-fries, and steamed vegetable dishes.  See nutritional charts below for dry and cooked shiitake mushrooms.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-8)
