We're welcoming a familiar face to our FBC Appetizer Contest! Jacquie of Parkallen Home Kitchen has submitted another tasty mushroom-centric appetizer. This time, she's highlighting the rich, earthy flavours of the lovely Shiitake mushroom!
Shiitake Mushroom Asian Tapenade
Mushrooms are probably one of my favorite vegetables. Since I haven’t tried too many variations of mushrooms, I figured it was about time I diversified my mushroom intake. I tried these shiitake mushrooms in a stir fry, and decided that their unique and rich flavor needed to be singled out, and so I decided to make an Asian mushroom tapenade.
1 Pound Shitake Mushrooms, washed with stems removed
1 Teaspoon of cooking oil (I used Mighty Trio Organic’s Canola Oil)
1 Tablespoon of Reduced Sodium Soy Sauce
Dice mushrooms small. Sauté with cooking oil until desired texture has been achieved, add soy sauce, cook until heated. Enjoy with your favorite crackers!
