More about Tropical Wholefoods Shiitake Mushrooms

This is a true versitile bag of goodness for every kitchen store cupboard. Shiitake mushrooms are an excellent accompaniment to any Rissoto, Omlette, sauce, soup or stew. When soaked and restored to it's wholeness, will be five times it's own weight. Little Bag Big Results.

Shiitake mushrooms have long been held to have health-giving properties by Japanese mystics. Regardless of the truth of these claims, they certainly taste fantastic.

Serving Suggestion

Excellent used sparingly, mixed with ordinary mushrooms.

Cooking Instructions

Rinse, then soak for 20 minutes in boiling water. Remove from water carefully  squeeze gently keeping the soaking water for stock. Finely slice and cook like any ordinary mushroom.

Customer reviews - Tropical Wholefoods Shiitake Mushrooms 50g


good price for quality - Mon 23rd Jan 2012

They add great taste note to stir-fries and soups. I always keep some in the cupboard and use either when I have not got any fresh mushrooms on hand or together with them for deeper flavour. They are good when mixed with other dried mushrooms too, mixed with porcini mushrooms in a risotto for example.
